Hit the ski slopes, go tubing or snowmobiling, explore cross country skiing, take a lowland nature walk, see the four-legged sights at an elk feeding station, and hang out in a cozy cabin or other lodging. Thatâ€™s some of the winter fun waiting at the White Pass recreation areas and at Paradise inside Mount Rainier National Park.
For current information and updates, go online at whitepassbyway.com and nps.gov/mora. Hereâ€™s an overview of whatâ€™s out there.
- Cross country skiing: Itâ€™s a world apart from alpine skiers and snowboarders. The White Pass area has an intricate web of groomed trails at the resort, as well as scenic logging roads and open slopes. Paradise has it, too.
- Miles of groomed trails stretch out in White Pass for this mechanized recreation. Riders can weave in and out of snow-covered tree stands and race across meadows of white powder.
- Besides cross country skiing, activities at Paradise include snowshoeing, winter camping, and snowboarding.
