Packwood and the Bugling Elk Bungalow are situated between Mt. Rainier, Mt. Saint Helens, Mt. Adams, and surrounded by Gifford Pinchot National Forest. Leave the fast pace and hassles behind, and embark on an adventure of natural scenic delights and wildlife so abundant, you will wonder if you are driving through the heart of a wild life preserve. Elk even appear a natural extension of the downtown Packwood landscape.

Getting to Packwood, on Hwy 12, Washington's White Pass Scenic Byway, 'Playground of Volcano Country' (received state and federal designation) is half the fun!

Historic Packwood, WA, is considered the dream of recreational enthusiasts, and White Pass ski area (17 miles beyond Packwood) has 1,510 vertical feet, ski lifts, great family skiing/ snowboard programs, terrain for all ages, and all in stunningly beautiful surroundings. They also offer lessons and rentals for classical cross-country, skating, or snowshoeing.

In December 2010, White Pass re-opened following a $9 million expansion project that opens 767 acres to riding, two new chairlifts, 13 new trails and a new day lodge. 'Paradise Basin's opening is the biggest new thing in years for Cascade skiers and snowboarders . . . turning White Pass into a midsize Northwest ski area . . . Even though its ski terrain has doubled, White Pass retains the feeling of a small resort.'
