Stevens Pass Ski Area is located approximately 78mi/125km from Seattle at the top of Stevens Pass, next to US Highway 2 in the Cascade Mountain Range in Washington State. Stevens Pass, the mountain pass was named after John Frank Stevens, who discovered the area in 1890 while working as an American civil engineer for the Great Northern Railway. The Pass reaches an elevation of 4000ft/1219m and connects travellers from the Skykomish Region to Leavenworth, Wenatchee, and the north-central portion of Washington State.

In 1937, Don Adams and Bruce Kehr, both passionate skiers saw their vision realized as Stevens Pass Ski Area (at the summit of Steven Pass), was opened to the public. Stevens Pass Ski Area has grown from its simple beginnings to an area with expansive terrain located on Cowboy and Big Chief Mountains, and the backside area known as Mill Valley, which features intermediate to advanced terrain. Stevens Pass Ski Area has earned a reputation for its vast amount of snowfall and over 1100 acres of skiable terrain that welcomes all levels of skiing and snowboarding enthusiasts.
