Following a review of opportunities, the management of Stevens Pass identified lift serviced mountain biking, sightseeing, and hiking as activities that warranted serious consideration.
Building on the physical realities of the site, complemented with the apparent synergies with the established skier marketplace and the untapped volume of vehicles passing through the area, BHA believed there was significant opportunity to introduce a summer operation at Stevens Pass. By creating a balanced and diverse mix of summer business, Stevens Pass improved their economic viability on a year round basis.
The intent was to build the summer facilities and operations slowly, starting first with lift serviced mountain biking on Hogsback. Methodically and based on expected success, the area will subsequently expand their operations to include the Skyline lift and other summer attractions (lift serviced sightseeing, hiking, etc). Ultimately, it is anticipated that additional opportunities will become apparent as the development unfolds.
