Too many people, limited terrain, high prices, and amateur parking. Been skiing there 50 years, yep, it needs to improve.

$90 a day, no deals or wait, book on line & save $9, what ! Who do you think you are, aspen?! Riding here for 20 years. What a bad start, can’t see how you can justify this:  whistler for $120, Breckenridge  $150. These mountains have so much more to offer. Where is your mid mountain grooming?   What is the long term plan? Nothing new, just high prices.

Good skiing, IMPOSSIBLE Children's lesson system

I have been skiing at Steven's for years with my family and have no complaints about the skiing or the facilities. I have used their children's lesson program for many years and been very happy. However, it is no longer possible to get reservations for kids group lessons. They sold me a 3 pack of lessons and I have yet to be able to get a space in lessons for my children. I call weeks in advance, with no luck. Also, they have no waiting list. They explained I would have better luck on weekdays, but my kids are in school and I work! I would not recommend the kids lessons at Stevens, and as long as you are not doing lessons why not ski at Crystal where kids are free :)

Stevens!

Stevens is pow heaven, especially during the week! If you don't like crowds avoid the weekends or, if your abilities and the conditions allow it, be prepared with avy gear and hike the ridges to get away from the crowds and find the freshies. Also, if you are a weekend warrior get here early to get a parking spot because it fills up fast and early.
If you're looking for a "resort" type atmosphere this is not the place for you. If you are all about the skiing/riding, pack your lunch, pack your beer (or whatever substance you're bringing) and get up to lot 4 for great vibes and get ready for some great snow.
If you're one of the few visiting from out of state and want to find the steeps, find a local and see if they're willing to show you where the goods are. Great mountain if you're into the steeps and deeps and know where to go. Most of the fun challenging terrain is not visible from the lifts or main runs. Well worth your money and time if you hit the right spots and do it right.

Never go on weekends mid season, unless you like waiting 10 minutes to get on certain lifts, especially if it were to dump on a Friday night because at that point you probably won't find a parking space.

Besides that, the resort isn't overly large, but large enough to take your family and explore the mountain for the day. The area is a great place to start skiing with lots of areas to test your growing skills.

They have three different lodges each housing some source of food.

As a regular to Steven's I have found the resort to become some what repetitive, but then again, I am not the most creative skier.

The snow conditions are some what more stable then that of neighboring Mt. Baker, were it could be snowing one day and raining the next.

Hit It Up Mid-Week

10/11/2013
Stevens Pass is definitely a ski area worth heading to whilst on a road trip of the western Washington ski resorts. You’ll need a car to have flexibility to get around, or you can head there as part of an organised tour.

This is a great ski resort to hit on a weekday, particularly after a storm although you may feel lonely in amongst all that deep powder! The only downside to weekdays is that some lifts are generally closed and not all the base facilities such as the eateries are open. You’ll also miss the vibrant après ski scene at the Foggy Goggle. Oh well, small sacrifice to make for getting the white powder.

Combined with inexpensive lodging in Leavenworth (not far away), skiing at Stevens Pass is very affordable.
