More Info


Stevens Pass gives skiers and riders access to 1,800 vertical feet across 1,125 acres of skiable terrain. The Washington ski area is home to 37 major runs, glades and a variety of bowls, plus 6 lifts that are lit for night skiing and riding several nights a week. There is a total of 10 chairlifts. Stevens Pass has 4 terrain parks, including Top Phlight, Tye Creek, Rail Garden and Daisy, with over 75 features.

The base elevation of the main base area is 4,061 feet while the Mill Valley area is 3,821 feet. Top elevation for Cowboy Mountain is 5,845 feet and 5,600 feet for Big Chief Mountain. The area receives on average 450 inches of snow, and there is snowmaking to bolster the snowfall. The breakout of the runs is beginner 11%, intermediate 54% and advanced 35%.

You can park for free in every lot, except the summit lot (Lot A) and Lot G. These are cash-only parking lots. If you have an RV, you can reserve a spot to stay at Stevens Pass overnight. There isn’t a lodge at the resort so it’s only a day resort, but there is night skiing until about 10:00 pm most nights.

The Mill Valley area has a lot of tree runs and is accessible from the Jupiter Express and Southern Cross chairlifts. The Stevens Pass Nordic Center has 28 kilometers of groomed, cross-country ski runs.

There aren’t a lot of restaurants on the mountain so you might do best eating in Leavenworth before heading up the hill.
