Given that Stevens Pass isn’t a designated stay-in destination, the resort boasts a lot of day-trippers travelling from Seattle and surrounding towns. This means one thing and one thing only: untouched powder stashes in the 471″ of snow!

Unless you’re a local who knows the area like the back of your leather-textured and sunburnt hand, it’s well known as a resort bursting with fresh lines for days. The resort is small but it’s the off-piste that you’d make the effort for here, ideal for a two-three day stop over on the way to a bigger area.
