About This Activity

The Retreat by Skatelite! Is a once in a lifetime experience that boasts Fifteen of the most recognized XGames Athletes, the XGames Vert and live music from The Blue Scholars 7 The Good Husbands! On August 17th The Retreat begins in the most peaceful locations imaginable, Lopez Island, in the beautiful San Jaun Islands of Washington State. Now, getting to San Juans can be difficult, especially when there is an event during the height of the Summer, however, the folks at Skatelite have thought of everything to ensure that you can get to and from Lopez Island with ease.  Beginning Friday August 16th, Shuttles will be available for all that wish to come over early to ensure they don't miss a minute of the festivities at The Retreat.  Most of the lodging has been booked in preparation for this event and that is why we created "Camp Skatelite" a 40 acre lot just outside the village where skate fans can camp Fri- Sun for just $5 per person.  Click here to learn about Camp Skatelite.  


Now what was that about the shuttles?  Beginning on Friday August 16th, guests can arrive and park in our free, secure park n ride, to board a Bus Shuttle that will allow them a free ride to the Anacortes Ferry Terminal.  You will need to pay the fee for a walk on passenger of $12.45 per person, however, that is a steal considering your car would be $42 + each additional passenger.   Once you board the ferry, you will cross the water heading directly to Lopez Island where more shuttles will be ready to take you to your prefered destinataion.  Depending on your arrival day/ time there may be as many as two options for drop off, (The Event Location or Camp Skatelite), so double check with a member of The Retreat Staff for clarification.
