We thought we were going to Crystal Mountain to ski. But turns out, it's almost impossible to get there! We were staying in Packwood, but in the winter you can't get to Crystal from there. We're so glad we tried White Pass! Amazing snow. Incredibly well-groomed & we got fresh powder every day. The lifts are pretty quick. Hardly any... More

Went snowboarding here just after Christmas while on vacation from Colorado. Snow was powdery and deep. View of Mount Rainier was stunning. Good terrain for the entire family

Went skiing on a Saturday and Sunday and the lines were always pretty quick and the new area they opened is great.My favorite runs are K+EMZ and Vertigo....they must have been engineered by a skate board park guy because the had alternating hills on each side of the run making for high speed roller coaster effect that was just outstanding.Great...

White Pass is skier friendly! Lots of lifts, area to ski, many levels of hill experience for young and old skiers. Beginners can use the magics carpet or the poma and intermediate skiers have several lifts to choose from.The back country lifts are a ways out, but fun skiing! The main lodge has great hot chocolate and the hamburgers were... More

This is skiing great for everyone. Plenty of black diamonds and easy hills. Many trails in the woods and a nice day lodge to eat.

We went and skied at White Pass for the first time as a family around Feburary. The over-all experience was pretty good. There were slopes ranging from Rookie to Double Diamond. The ski instructors for kids seemed a little on edge but that was just what I observed. The young skiers had a very small, short slope. The beginners had... More

Love this place for so many reasons. One of them being it's affordability. The variety of trail-types and fewer travelers make it ideal for all skill levels of ski and snowboarders. Staff are great, the slopes are always well kept, and the lodge is very cozy. Expect to pay a bit of a premium for cooked meals there though.

I hadn't skied White Pass since my teen years, but I had really fond memories of skiing there way back when. I was also curious to see what the area was like with its recent expansion. Wow, what a difference! Varied terrain, great lifts, incredible views and a fun, family atmosphere make this a very user friendly place. My wife... More

If you are a pro skier you can hit the park. If you are a beginner you can hit the bunny slopes. This mountain is for skiers of every level. Great lodging all around.
