The SnowRider has returned to take skiers and snowboarders and other snow-loving folks up to the mountains.
The bus is scheduled to take people up to Stevens Pass on Saturdays from Jan. 5 to Feb. 23. As part of the South Whidbey Parks & Recreation District, organizers described the program as one that focuses on safety with chartered buses, drivers in winter conditions and chaperones. Youths 10 years and older are welcome to ride along, too.
The season fee costs $310 plus tax through Dec. 15, or $290 if catching the bus from Everett. That fee covers only the travel, and lift tickets are additional, but discounted between 20 percent and 40 percent through the SnowRider program.
Reserve a spot on the bus online at www.swparks.org or call Carrie Monforte at 221-6788.
