Will we have to make a reservation to ski this season?
While we currently anticipate access to the lifts to be normal, we are in frequent contact with State and County health officials.  Capacity limits appear possible, while they are not mandated at this time.  NOTE: Our plan is for season pass holders to retain full access;  however, we will limit day ticket sales to avoid over-crowding.. Plan on reloading your lift tickets online.  Beginning skiers and riders will still be handled at our ticket booth.

Will WP still offer RV Parking?
Yes.  Reservations open now.  Learn more >>

What are lift ticket rates for the upcoming season? PLEASE NOTE -  reload rates will only be available online, not at the mountain.  We are doing our best to keep people out of as many lines as possible so we ask that you plan ahead and purchase online.  See rates here >

Will lessons and rentals still be available?  Yes.  There will be some modified protocol to heading into the rental area which is currently under development.  Lessons will run very similarly.  Kids' Clinic has been modified to no longer include lunch.  Parents will pick up their skier/rider from Noon until 1pm.  Rates have been discounted accordingly.  Kids' Clinic is SOLD OUT.

Will 4-packs be available?  No, we will not be selling multi-day ticket products this season.

WP has implemented the following actions to help prevent the spread of COVID-19

  • Staff members have been instructed to stay home if they show even the slightest sign of illness or fever.  They have also been instructed to stay home should family members or roommates become ill
  • We have added multiple hand-sanitizing stations throughout the area accessible to guests and staff
  • We have increased the frequency of disinfection in bathrooms, kitchen surfaces, door handles, and other frequently touched surfaces and are performing regular sanitation rounds throughout our indoor and outdoor facilities.
  • No need to QUAD UP.  Feel free to only ride with the crew you came up with... just let our attendants know.  Solo is OK on our double chairlift; on quads we will ask that 2 singles ride at opposite ends of the chair.  Thanks for being flexible everyone!

We ask that our guests follow these guidelines

  • .Please, stay home if you, a family member or roommate are showing any sign of illness
  • While at the ski area, practice social distancing - we encourage you to use outdoor seating and/or going "old school" and eating lunch at the car
  • Wash your hands, wash your hands, wash your hands
  • Go direct-to-lift!  Remember, you can reload that pass online and head straight to the chairlift.
  • Ride our lifts with your party only.  We allow single riders to ride on opposite ends of the quad lift.

Let's work together

We are so grateful for our amazing White Pass Family and our top priority is your health and safety.  With that in mind, we will do our part to follow all guidelines set forth by the CDC and WADOH.  We know that you, our valued guests, will do the same.  For more information please see the following:
