More Info


White Pass Ski Area offers 2,000 feet of vertical and 1,402 skiable acres. With a top elevation of 6,500 feet and a base elevation of 4,500 feet, there is on average 350 inches of annual snowfall, bolstered by snowmaking at the base area at Far East and Poma Face. All ski areas are serviced by six chairlifts, including two high-speed quads.

Night skiing is available on a limited basis, including on Saturdays and holidays. The two terrain parks (Progression Park or Rib Eye Park) offers slopestyle, jams and more for freestylers. There are also 11 miles of cross-country skiing at the Nordic Center.

While you can stay at the White Pass Village Inn, you can also save money by staying at Lot C in an RV. While there are no hookups in the lot, it’s completely free to stay there. You can also find lodging right on the mountain by looking up cabins on Airbnb and VRBO. There’s plenty to do on the mountain, including dining, drinking, shopping and more.

Take a twilight snowshoe tour, which happens on Saturdays typically in January and February during the season. If the moonlight is bright enough, you don’t need to bring a headlamp. Reserve your spot ahead of time to ensure that there is space for you.
