Preparing For Your Trip

Tips for making the most of your time on the mountain

  • Parking is free and available on a first come, first served basis – it does fill up quickly, especially on weekends and holidays. We encourage you to arrive before 9am or after 1pm to secure parking and we highly recommend carpooling. Once the summit lots are full, guests will be directed to our satellite locations, where there are shuttles to/from the summit. If all on-site lots are full, guests will need to come back in the afternoon when spots begin to free up. It is important to understand that parking on Highway 2 is not an option.
  • Winter can create challenging driving conditions. We strongly recommend your vehicle have winter tires and that you carry tire chains. Check WSDOT before leaving home for updates on road conditions and possible closures.
  • Catch views of the Northern Cascade Mountains by taking Skyline to Barrier Ridge for a long, scenic trail back to the base area.
  • Looking for advanced challenges? Find steep terrain with narrow chutes and cliffs on the ungroomed trails off of 7th Heaven. Intermediate and advanced trails on the backside take you through meadows and trees, all while providing you with views of beautiful Mill Valley.
  • Don’t sleep on the Nordic Center! It has a ton to offer, including cross-country and snowshoeing trails, sledding/snow play, and food & drink at the Cascade Depot. It is open Thursday – Sunday and is located in Lower Mill Valley, five miles east of Stevens Pass.    
  • Night skiing and riding operates Wednesdays-Sundays from 3-10 pm through mid-March. Kehr’s Chair, Daisy, Hogsback, Skyline, Brooks and Tye Mill are open during night operations, offering access to our lit runs.
  • Download the Epic Mix App or follow our Stevens Pass Updates Twitter page to check alerts and get the latest real-time updates on the mountain.
