2018 Hospitality Workshops
An outreach program will be held this spring to inform retail and services staff along the byway corridor about visitor information and travel tools available. The program is conducted in a series of free workshops in communities along the byway to encourage local staff, from visitor center staffers to gas station clerks, to consistently provide friendly hospitality and accurate information for visitors. This year the program will be held in Morton, Mossyrock and Packwood:
June 6: 10 a.m. - Noon or 1 p.m. - 3 p.m. at the Packwood Community Building
June 7: 10 a.m. - Noon at the Morton General Hospital Conference Room #2
June 7: 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. at the Mossyrock Community Building

Specials & Deals Listings
We would like to encourage byway businesses to market themselves with a package or special offer on our Specials and Deals page. A special can include a price reduction, a giveaway, or a package with added value (ski lift tickets, meals, etc). Remember -- you don't have to lower your price to put together a package! Added value is a great incentive to attract business. A Specials & Deals listing on the website will include the terms of your current special as they are supplied to us. If you have a photo you would like us to include with your special, please feel free to send this to us.
We review this page each month and notify those whose special has expired and has been removed from the page. We will keep these deals current and fresh! Along with notification of your special's expiration, we will also ask for any new special you would like to post.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact us. If you have a special ready to post, contact us today! View the Specials and Deals page here. We are excited to use this page to promote the many businesses along the White Pass Scenic Byway to visitors to the area.

Enhanced Lodging Listing
We offer lodging businesses the opportunity to purchase an enhanced lodging listing on our website. An enhanced listing provides a more prominent placement on our lodging page. For an annual fee of $250, your listing will be placed in the Enhanced Listing section of our lodging web page. Your lodging property will also be added to the Google map on the lodging page. It will include a 50-100 word description of your property, a photo, a listing of amenities, and your number of units.
The results of our enhanced listing program are remarkable. Enhanced listings on our website consistently receive 3-5 times more referrals than our basic listings. Enhanced listings receive an average of over 1,500 clicks each year, while basic listings return just over 500 clicks. There is a considerable value to an enhanced listing.
Keep in mind we host the lodging listings for the White Pass Ski Area. This means visitors to SkiWhitePass.com are taken directly to the White Pass Byway lodging page when they click on Lodging on SkiWhitePass.com. This is a great opportunity to showcase your business to overnight skiers during the ski season and beyond!
Please contact us if you are interested in an enhanced listing. We are happy to answer any questions you may have.

We are happy to supply our popular tearsheet maps to businesses and organizations along the byway. If you are in need of additional copies, contact us and we will make arrangements to have them delivered to you. We have both drive tour tearsheet maps and hiking tearsheet maps available.
