Last Weekend of the Season for White Pass

Posted: Updated:

WHITE PASS, Wash.-- This weekend is the final chance for skiers and snowboarders to head to White Pass before it closes for the year.

The area will only run Great White chair and platter pull this weekend.

The paradise basin area will be closed off.

It's the end of a successful season for White Pass.

They say it's their third best year in terms of the numbers of visitors.

"We attribute the last few years with the expansion... It's just pulled so many more people from out of the area, we've been up, really every year, but again I think this year is better than last year," said White Pass Spokesperson Kathleen Goyette.

The area says they've also seen strong seasons pass pre-sales for next year.

The other major ski resort in the area, Ski Bluewood, has already closed for the season.
