New Hours for Uphill Skiers Announced

Mt. Spokane Ski and Snowboard Park Expands Uphill Route Access Hours

With the growing popularity of skinning and an increase in uphill ski traffic, Mt Spokane Ski & Snowboard Park implemented a comprehensive policy this season, offering uphill access to a specified route within the concession area. The new policies allow Mt. Spokane to better manage and track users and vehicles while giving access to uphill skiers without the usual expense of downhill daily lift tickets or downhill season passes.

The original hours for uphill skiing were limited to 7:15am–9am. In order to broaden the use and meet the needs of uphill skiers, Mt. Spokane Ski & Snowboard Park now permits uphill travel to start at 7:15am and continue throughout the day. Skiers must switch to downhill skiing and be off the mountain by the close of the business day. On non-operating days, skiers must be done skiing by 4pm/dusk to allow for grooming operations to begin.

“Our team at Mt. Spokane Ski & Snowboard Park is dedicated to supporting this growing population of outdoor enthusiasts and look forward to providing more access, services, and programming to uphill skiers in the future," says Jim van Loben Sels, General Manager, Mt. Spokane Ski & Snowboard Park.

Uphill Season Passes are $50 and include an Early Access Parking permit for the concession area. Users with an annual downhill pass can request a free Early Access Parking Permit for the season at no cost. Uphill Season Passes can be purchased online.
