Stevens Pass trail difficulty is based on the degree of difficulty for our area.
Slow zones are marked on the trail map. These areas are our beginner areas and congested areas. Please slow down through these areas. Please report violators to the Ski Patrol. Clothing descriptions are helpful. Violators will lose their ticket or pass.
An area may be closed for safety considerations or avalanche danger. Violating a closure will result in loss of ticket or pass on initial contact. Responsibility Code # 6.
The backcountry area outside of the Stevens Pass Ski Area boundaries is public land. However you must be aware of the potential for serious injury and costly rescue operations. There may be times when hiking routes in the Ski area boundaries are closed due to avalanche danger or other safety concerns.
To ensure safety, sledding and sledding devices are not allowed anywhere within the permit boundary area, which includes the Nordic Center, 5 miles east of the Alpine area.
