Posted: Updated:

WHITE PASS, Wash- Many Central and Eastern Washington residents grew up on the local slopes.  But if you never learned to ski or snowboard, it's not too late to take advantage of being just hours away from local ski resorts.

On top of the standard one day of lessons, rentals, and lift passes, some of the local mountains including white pass and Bluewood offer EZ-ski, EZ- ride packages that include three days of classes, rentals, and lift tickets.

"Sometimes it takes three days to really get to know the sport, you really get very proficient.  By that time, we've got you up on the upper mountain", says Kevin McCarthy, general manager of White Pass.
