Posted By: Steve Bellamy on July 12, 2009 7:55 am

After nearly 20 years of litigation, the ballpark $10 Million White Pass Ski Area expansion is underway that will basically double the size of the resort.  The project will have two new lifts, a 3000 foot lodge and 13 new runs.  About 500 feet of verticle will be added to the resort.  The 13 new runs will be etched into the Hogback Basin portion of the mountain.

The project is adhering to strict environmental impact requirements and much of the gear and material will be heli’d in.  Apres expansion White Pass should be able to accomodate nearly 200,000 visitors per year
