Skiing at Snoqualmie

Shuttle service to Summit at Snoqualmie back in action

Keep the car at home and take the bus for a winter ski adventure

Winter ski fans, shuttle service to Summit at Snoqualmie is back.

As we all know, skiing and winter sporting can make places like Snoqualmie Pass crowded, and sometimes the trip up can be tricky. Skip the long parking lines and the winter drive to Snoqualmie Pass and take the bus.

You can sit in the comfort of a private bus on select days, Thursday through Monday (January-March). The private bus service, FlixBus, will be servicing routes to Summit West and Summit Central in Snoqualmie three times a day. Buses leave as early as 7:30 a.m. with return times as late as 6:30 p.m.

Departure stations are at the University of Washington at Northeast Campus Pkwy in front of Condon Hall; and in the Chinatown International District at Sixth Avenue South and South Lane Street.

Book and choose your seats online and ahead of your trip. There is no additional charge for ski and snowboard equipment.

If you’re planning on tubing, riders must stop at the Summit Central location. Flixbus will not be making stops at the Nordic and snowshoe locations. Those interested in these winter activities must find other transportation to reach their final destination.
