You can access the ski trails listed below from a fee parking lot operated by the Willamette Pass Ski Area (sno-park permits are NOT valid). You can also access these trails from the Gold Lake Sno-park, where you need a sno-park permit. There is a corridor leading through the base of the ski area to the Pacific Crest Trail and Rosary Lakes area. A ski tour of approximately 4 miles on the Pacific Crest Trail (heading north from Willamette Pass) will lead the skilled and prepared backcountry skier to the Maiden Peak Shelter, a fully enclosed octagonal ski shelter that is free to the public.
