Directions

From SR-2 East, take the first right turn into the ski area parking lots as you reach the pass.
From SR-2 West, take the last left turn into the ski area parking lots just before you leave the pass.
(These parking lots are just below Tye Creek Lodge and the Brooks Chair Terminal.)

  • Stay to the left, entering Parking Lot #3 and go through the long parking lot and around a hairpin turn into Parking Lot #4, the topmost parking area.
  • Park against the uphill "snow bank" side of the parking lot.
  • At the far end of the parking lot (southwest corner), walk up to and turn right on the footpath/snow cat road.
  • Continue up the short, steep road for 200 yards. Stevens Lodge is the 4 story, red-brown building at the first sharp, 90-degree bend in the road.
  • Look for The Mountaineers sign on the balcony and come on in!

Q: What do I need to bring?

You can also enjoy reading a good book by our wood-burning fireplace.

Q: Is the Lodge heated?

Fun Facts About Stevens Lodge

Originally only half of its current size, the lodge used to be a little cozier when it only had the living room and kitchen. The front half of the building that is now the dinning area was added a couple of years later.

Until 1977 folks had to use an outhouse bedind the building. At one point the outhouse was on such a steep incline that a cable was put in to help people get there.

Half-inch cables hold the lodge to the mountain. However as the snow accumulates, the cables are loosened - not tightened - due to the downward pressure of the snow on the cables. The turnbuckles are located on the downhill side of the building’s second floor.

There have been a couple of seasons where you could ski right over the cabin.

The upright poles on the back fire escape were the original poles from the first chairlift at Stevens Pass.

In an effort to embrace one of The Mountaineer's core principles, we recently reduced the lodges environmental impact by converting all of our toilets to low-flow in addition to raising awareness of water conservation at the lodge. This has saved nearly 40,000 gallons of water annually and lowered the water bill from $8,400 to $2,600.

The "W" on the dining room wall does not represent west. It is for a person who spoke at the lodge during those crazy 70’s.

Our neighboring cabins all have long standing family histories, each representing at least three generations.

The road that the lodge in on is actually owned by the Wasington DOT, not the U.S. Forest Service. It is an access road to the Grace Lakes area. The ski area maintains it for the DOT.
