The Berghaus is located in the mountains of beautiful Snoqualmie Pass at the Summit East ski area at Hyak, less than an hour's drive from Seattle.
During the Winter, the Berghaus is accessible by footpath from Innsbruck Dr., and by skis via nearby East Peak chairlift. Parking is only permitted in the Summit East Lower Parking Lot.

Park close to any other vehicles to keep spots open for others
The address maps fairly well, but don’t count on mobile data service once you’re at the summit. The pictures below should help you get to the correct spot.
Drop-Off Area and Trail
Important! There is no parking at the Drop-off Area (except for our caretaker). You may TEMPORARILY leave your car to help with kids or bags, but after a brief trip up the trail, please return immediately to move your car down to the Hyak Parking Lot. Be mindful to NOT take Caretaker’s spot (far left, slope side).
Pull car all the way forward to allow for additional 5th spot behind the cars if needed.
Park as close to other cars as possible.
There is no parking on the road sides below the Berghaus in the winter. Do not leave your vehicle unattended, if you do, your vehicle will be towed to Cle Elum! If you need to unload belongings, do so quickly and park your vehicle in the Summit East Lower Parking Lot at the bottom of the hill.
Turning around or parking in the neighbors' driveways is also prohibited.
Members and guests must use the main lodge basement entrance. Do not enter the caretaker’s door in the bunkhouse.
Please keep to the trail and remind everyone in your group and any guests not to walk or play on our neighbors’ property.
