Mid-November Ops Update

Posted:

It’s mid-November and we are oh-so-close to being able to open… Although the snow has been accumulating, the temperatures and precipitation didn’t quite add up to our hopes and anticipation this week. We had hoped for an opening this weekend. While our mountain operations crew love what they see on the top half of the slopes at Summit West, the lower slopes and lift load areas just don't yet have the necessary coverage. That said, we know it won’t be too much longer and the...

First Top-to-Bottom Snow

Posted:

This week the snow level dropped all the way down to the base of Summit East for the first time this season. While it's not enough accumulation to start planning an opening day, it is enough to get everyone super excited for the upcoming winter.

The good news is that we have two more opening days coming right up! That's the beauty of The Summit and all it's variety.

Summit Update: A Base is Building

Posted:

It's all about the base!

Yesterday's storm brought about 7-8" of new snow to the base areas of Summit West and Alpental! Upper mountain at Alpental has seen 18" of fresh since Saturday! A great place to start when it comes to getting the base depth built up for opening. One more good storm and we could be ready to make the announcement!

Our grooming manager will be out on the mountain this afternoon further assessing Summit West.

At Summit West we need...
