getting there

From SR 2 East, take the first right turn into the Stevens Pass ski area parking lots as you reach the pass.
From SR 2 West, take the last left turn into the Stevens Pass ski area parking lots just before you leave the pass.
Stay to the left, entering Parking Lot #3 and go through the long parking lot and around a hairpin turn into Parking Lot #4, the uppermost parking area.

Snowshoe Route

From our Stevens Lodge, follow the road uphill.  Less than a quarter mile from the lodge, don't miss the right-hand turn; following the fork left will lead you up into the ski area.  The route will lead you along a road (easy route-finding!), up and down, and eventually to the Grace Lakes Basin.  Here there is rolling terrain to explore.  Seek out the knob on the northern edge for views out to Skyline Ridge and Rock Mountain.

Notes

  • Watch for skiers and boarders coming down the road.
