Skiing at Stevens Pass

Skiing at Stevens Pass provides snowboarders and skiers a vast amount of acreage with numerous downhill runs. Regardless of experience, Stevens Pass ski trips have plenty of options for visitors, as there are designated areas for individual skill levels with lessons available for adults and teens. The degrees of difficulty include easy, more difficult, most difficult, expert, and freestyle.

The individual runs at Stevens Pass are groomed nightly once the resort closes to maintain the consistency of each run. For guests’ safety, warning signs are posted in applicable areas along with skill level signs for each run.

Multiple lifts transport guests to specific runs. On the resort’s front side, six lifts operate daily at scheduled times and again in the evening for night skiing on Friday and Saturday. There are currently 25 runs available on the front side with varying degrees of difficulty. At Mill Valley, an additional nine runs are accessible via the Jupiter Quad and Southern Cross lifts.

The Hogsback Express lift was added in 1998. This high-speed quad lift provides skiers with access to intermediate runs on the front side; it was built to replace two older lifts, a double and a triple, and it cut in half the time it took to reach the top of the mountain—from eight minutes to just four.

Visitors planning to go skiing at Stevens Pass have several lodges available providing restaurants, cafes, live music, and pubs. Rental equipment, accessory shops, ticket sales for lifts, park, and season tickets, and a first aid station are located within the Pacific Crest, Granite Peaks, and Tye Creek lodges. There are numerous accommodations in the area, around the town of Leavenworth, as well as overnight RV parks.
