Beefy stature and locale suggest C. subalbidus to me.

The only other very large Cantharellus in the PNW I’ve seen are C. raineerensis, which can be 8-12 inches wide, and over an inch through the base of the stipe. But 2 of these in a box of C. formosus and they stick out … all over the place. I’ve seen one specimen which was nearly 14 inches across the top.

On the smaller category this appears to be the more robust C. subalbidus to me. And this year was an especially good producing year in the Cascades. In my opinion, C. subalbidus is a better eating mushroom than C. formosus.

Interesting

those gills/ridges are pretty well defined for Cantharellus.
