White Pass Nordic Center

Glide along perfectly groomed trails, take in majestic views of the stunning Cascade Crest and realize that a day at the Nordic Center is winter recreation at its best.

The White Pass Nordic Center staff would like to welcome you to the quiet side of the ski area.  We maintain 18 kilometers of trail that provide a variety of terrain suitable for beginning through expert cross country skiers.  We offer rental equipment for cross country skiing, skate skiing, snowshoeing and fat biking. We encourage you to browse our small retail center at the yurt.  You'll also find our yurt to be a relaxing spot where you can grab a snack and catch up with friends and family upon your return to the trail head.

The White Pass Nordic Team is for the 6 – 18-year-old aspiring cross country athlete looking to develop their skills and push their skiing to the next level. The program runs for 12 sessions (mostly on Saturdays) from late December through Mid-March, with training from 9:30am - noon. The team travels to approximately 1-2 events per year (travel is optional).  The focus will be primarily on classic cross-country skiing, with exposure to skate skiing as well. We will cover all aspects of the sport, from skiing and racing technique to ski waxing and equipment prep.
