Stevens Pass still has a good four weeks left in its season. With abundant snow this March in the Cascade Mountains, the last several weeks of the season should offer plenty of snow for Washington skiers and snowboarders. Season passholders from other resorts and REI members can get lift ticket discounts this spring with the PNW Pass.
 
The PNW Pass is a direct-to lift pass. You back it with your credit card, which is automatically charged when you go to the lift without waiting in ticket window lines.
 
With the PNW Pass, skiers and riders can get on the lifts for $7 off weekend rates and $12 off weekday rates. Those who ski three days on the pass can ski the fourth day free.

The pass is available to two groups — those who have an REI membership or season passholders from any other resort. You’ll need to bring your REI membership card or season pass with you to the resort in order to get the PNW Pass.
 
PNW Passes do not work like season passes. Since Stevens Pass prices their lift tickets according to different session start times, owner of PNW Passes need to be aware of the session times to avoid getting overcharged. Session times start at 9 a.m, 12 p.m, and 3 p.m. Accessing the lifts prior to the 12 p.m or 3 p.m. start time will get you charged for the earlier session.
 
PNW Passes are valid for discounts through the end of the ski season, which is scheduled for April 15, 2012. Night skiing ends March 31.
