White Pass has a colorful history as one of the most popular ski resorts in the State.
White Pass ski area was established in 1952, literally by the hands of the local ski club. It now boasts over 130,000 visitors a year. Many of the skiers come from the west side of the Cascades to escape long lines and gray weather. The opening of the Paradise Basin in 2010 doubled the size of White Pass and has also opened many opportunities for future growth and popularity.
