Admittance to the base area, day lodge, and castle area are all free and open to the public.

tips for a successful trip to winter carnival

PARKING - Parking gets tight, especially on Saturday between 9:45 am and 1:30 pm.  Please plan accordingly. 

CROWDS - If you are looking for smaller crowds, plan to attend on Sunday.

NIGHT SKIING - SATURDAY ONLY - Tickets are available at the ticket booth beginning at 2 pm.  Tickets provide access to the carpets and our Far East Chairlift. 

FOOD - We will be offering our regular menu at the Cafe, Bistro and Espresso.  Old No. 3 and High Camp will be open as well.

PRO TIP - SNACKS - Get some snacks in your pockets.  Kids play hard and wear out more quickly when they play outdoors in the snow.

TEACH PATIENCE, KINDNESS AND RESPECT - Please help us maintain the fun atmosphere of Winter Carnival by preparing your kids for standing in line at the castle.  Teach them to respect the work of artists by obeying all rope lines and refraining from climbing on or destroying the sculptures.  Thank you!


The White Pass Winter Carnival is among of the most popular winter festivals in the Pacific Northwest.  We can't wait to see you on the hill!
