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. It was started in 1966 by club members with the support of the Boeing Employees Recreation Department to provide a year-round over-night facility at a cost lower than available at public facilities.

We are sorry but the lodge is currently closed until ~ August 15th!

2024 Remodeling Plans

We are so excited to be remodeling the lodge’s kitchen this summer!  This means the lodge will not be available until approximately August 15th.  We will be sharing updates on the remodel on our website and Facebook.  

We do need help.  Here are some upcoming work parties….

June 8 Crystal Mountain Parking Lot Clean up –

Crystal Mountain is having its annual Ski Clubs clean up the parking lot day as part of its continued “exchange” for parking spaces set aside for the Clubs during ski & snowboard season.

We need people to come out and pick up trash. This is an all ages activity and if your children need community service hours, this is an excellent option! 9:30 Arrival, 10AM Start. This is a single day event.


June 8 and/or June 9 Demo & Heavy Lifting– 

The kitchen is being demolished and old HEAVY stoves and appliances are being removed. No children, please, and lifting requirement of 50+ pounds for members.


June 22 Brush Cutting – 

We are heading into what looks like a dangerous fire season with the lack of snowpack. This will be a day long brush cutting (loppers, trimmers, weed eaters) party to keep our lodge’s perimeter protected. Minimum age: 10 years old with direct parental supervision. 10AM-4PM.


Work Party Weekends

These are our standard work party weekends, with a focus on repairs, maintenance, and painting. Minimum age 8 with direct parental supervision. 

*August 17-18 Work Party (this date may change depending on remodel progress and timeline)

September 14-15 Work Party

October 12-13 Work Party
