Stevens Pass ski area opens for the season

Stevens Pass is open for the season to skiers and snowboarders. The ski area opened on Saturday and, thanks to more snow, plans to stay open daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., conditions permitting.

They have the Hogsback, Brooks and Daisy chair lifts open, as well as the rope tow. More lifts will be opened as conditions allow.

The Beacon Hill terrain park has more than 10 features available and staff are working on getting more features and the other terrain parks ready to go.

Tickets are $20 through Thursday, and if you have a season pass to any other mountain area resort you can ski free through Thursday at Stevens.
