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.

Open 8:30 am - 4 pm Thursday - Sunday and holidays.  Reservations are NOT required or available.  Come on up!

Notes:  Rich says everything will be groomed.  We will not have a track set for classic due to a snow-cat breakdown.  However, it's a skater's delight today with firm groomed surface conditions!  Snowshoe trails look good and it is firm enough for bikes today.
