White Pass Expanding

White Pass is a great little ski area hidden in the southern Washington Cascades, and it is growing into a great medium sized ski area very soon, with the pending opening of 700 more acres of terrain on an adjacent peak. Lift towers and foundations are in place, awaiting the installation of lift hardware and mobs of happy skiers and snowboarders. Trails have been mostly cut, so it was possible to envision the ski area as it will be when the expansion is complete.

Being a little adventurous, I followed tracks to the base of the new lift, had a look around, and then took the long trail back to the base area. It was well worth a little extra work to see what will be coming for White Pass next year. I predict the new lifts and terrain will be much appreciated. Looks like more great trees and well-planned cruisers for the Yakima crowd.
