These were found growing near Sitka spruce.
Back in 2008 I didn’t take many micro-photos and my technique was much cruder, but the spores were subglobose and approx. 6 X 5.3 microns and somewhat rough.
In Trudell’s recent book , he mentions that Cortinarius venetus var. montanus “can be found in our region with conifers”. Dimi’s Mushroom Hobby notes that Cortinarius venetus is found with spruce in Europe. A web search doesn’t seem to show any North American collections of the C. venetus var montanus.
However, these do seem to fall into the range of those species.
