Uphill Travel Policy

Uphill Travel Policy

Uphill travel policy

Please follow these simple requirements to assure safety for all White Pass skiers, riders and staff. Be advised that avalanche control work, while typically done between 6 am - 9 am, could be done at anytime.  In the interest of your safety and the safety of our crew, you must ONLY use the prescribed uphill route.  Failure to comply will result in being escorted from the ski area and trespassed from White Pass Ski Area.

  • The only approved run for uphill travel is HOLIDAY.  Consult our trail map.

  • Stay to your extreme left (downhill skier's right) of Holiday as you climb

  • Stay clear of all ski area vehicles and equipment

  • Give right of way to all downhill traffic

  • Please be aware of the constant potential for avalanches; always let someone off the mountain know your travel plan and estimated return time, and be educated on all back-country protocols.  

  • For detailed avalanche forecasts, safety courses, and more see (and please support) Northwest Avalanche Center
