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
During our open enrollment period each year, September through December, 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 $200, 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. In 2010, the average enhanced lodging listing received 1,768 clickthroughs from the White Pass Scenic Byway website. Basic listings had an average of 299 clickthroughs during the same time period. We urge you to consider an enhanced listing and take advantage of these missed clicks!
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.
Need a supply of Byway Tearsheet Maps?
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.
An outreach program has been developed to train retail and services staff along the byway corridor to provide effective travel information. The program is conducted in a series of free workshops in communities along the byway each spring to encourage local staff, from visitor center staffers to gas station clerks, to consistently provide friendly hospitality and accurate information for visitors.
2015 Hospitality Workshops

It's time again for our annual Hospitality Workshops! Each year we meet with businesses and individuals who greet visitors to our area and offer information and insight into the opportunities along the Byway. This year our emphasis is on the Mt. St. Helens region. Celebrating 35 years since the eruption along with the re-opening of the Cascade Peaks Info Center on the road to Windy Ridge, Mt. St. Helens will be the chosen destination for thousands of visitors this year. We want you to be prepared!
This year's program, "The Greatest Earth on Show" will be presented by Todd Cullings, the Assistant Director of the Johnston Ridge Observatory at the Mount St. Helens Monument. Together we will explore key interpretive stories, features, facilities and trails at Mt. St. Helens.
Please RSVP! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know you are coming. There is no cost to attend. The workshop is supported by Lewis County lodging tax funds and sponsored by the White Pass Scenic Byway. RSVP is not required, but appreciated.
