Paradise Basin at White Pass debuts

Posted: Updated:

White Pass, Wash- After decades of anticipation, Paradise Basin opened today.  The expansion at White Pass doubles the size of the ski resort.  White pass opened for the season last week, but at the time there wasn't enough snow to open Paradise Basin.  Now there are two new quad lifts, a day lodge, and over 750 and acres of new ski area.

"I can't imagine there being a crowded run at White Pass ever again.  I think that's what folks noticed. They essentially were having entire runs to themselves all day long", says Kathleen Goyette, Media Relations for White Pass.

Goyette says the overcast weather is most likely the reason not as many people were on the mountain this last week ... But they are still hoping to see a fifteen percent increase in sales this year.
