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.

First the good: The recent expansion of the resort added 2 new lifts and lots of new runs. Lift lines are short and snow is pretty good for being so close to the west side of Washington. The new High Camp Lodge is fun, has great food, and a great staff. The not so good: -The main lodge is a... More

Great resort for skiing with your family! there are lots of options for beginner and advanced skiing on this mountain. The lift operators and all the crew are friendly and helpful. There is a lot of terrain and this helps to disperse people around the mountain so you never feel like you are skiing in a busy freeway.

I loved this ski hill when I was driving truck coast to coast. It is right on the back road over the mountains to Tacoma. There is plenty of room to park a tractor-trailer and food available. The most beautiful slope on the mountain gives you a view of Mount Rainier all the way down. Take the lift to the... More
