"This latest spring storm has created some phenomenal late-season conditions here at Stevens Pass," said Bill Bourton, General Manager at Stevens Pass. "We decided to extend our season so that our guests and loyal season pass holders have an opportunity to enjoy another day or two on the slopes."
For the extended season, lift tickets will be $55 for ages 16-69, $39 for ages 7-15, $15 for ages 70 and over. Children six and under are free.
