Location: The SKIBACS Lodge is located within walking distance of the Crystal Mountain Ski Area in the Snoqualmie National Forest, adjacent to the Mount Rainier National Park.

You will receive exact directions to the lodge upon signing up for the event.

**Be Aware** All rooms utilize bunk style beds. Each participant is guaranteed their own bed. The mattresses only have a cover and require bedding. Each participant is required to bring their own sleeping bag/linens/or bedding of choice. Also remember to bring your own towels, toiletries, and any other creature comforts you prefer! This is a private ski lodge rather than a hotel, so please keep that in mind. Members and guests are responsible for cleaning up after themselves and it is much appreciated if you can help with a chore or two while staying. We have no dedicated cleaning staff so it’s up to each of us to upkeep the lodge! Any questions or concerns reach out to the trip leader. The lodge manager can help as well.
