Business slow in Naches with White Pass closure

Posted: Updated:
Naches, WA -  With White Pass closed, the ski area had to shut down too.

In Naches, many businesses count on increased traffic over the pass later in the week.

The Chinook Market usually sees quite a few skiers driving through, but today, they only saw the local clientele.    

"It's a big concern, if White Pass shuts down over a weekend, because the skiers come through and support our business," says Brenda Barton, a cashier at Chinook Market.

Last week, The Chinook Market benefited from the Snoqualmie Pass closure with many trucks diverted over White Pass.
