El Sendero (The Path) Backcountry Ski and Snowshoe Club is a non-profit organization founded in 2004 based out of Wenatchee, WA.

El Sendero works to create, preserve, or manage areas of public land for quiet, non-motorized winter recreation on public lands. We work to preserve backcountry areas for quiet human-powered use, promote winter backcountry safety and ethics, and cooperatively resolve conflicts among backcountry users.

El Sendero is. a 501(c)4 non-profit organization, based in Wenatchee WA. and a grassroots member of the national non-profit Winter Wonderlands Alliance. We are backcountry skiers, snowboarders, snowshoers, and winter campers. We educate the public and ourselves on issues affecting the backcountry, we attend public meetings and represent non-motorized interests, and we network with other organizations in North Central Washington (NCW) to work together on common goals.
