More Terrain For Early December

Posted:

All of our on-hill and base area teams have been working hard this week to prepare Summit Central and Alpental for opening. We're very happy to announce that both areas will open for the season on December 9, 2017 and we plan to have all the usual lifts open at each area right from the start to give you plenty of variety and hundreds more acres of fun terrain. Beginning this Saturday, Summit Central will be open daily for the season.

Lift tickets will be our regular off-...

2017-18 Opening Weekend

Posted:

What a weekend! We kicked off the season with five lifts and two magic carpets, which is actually a great start and provided for plenty of fun plus a fair bit of variety. The only low of the day was the visibility, which to be honest probably left many wondering which way was down at times.

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...

Planning For Summer Fun

Posted:

There's plenty of excitement here at The Summit at Snoqualmie this fall. Not just because we've already had several shots of snow all the way down to base level, but there are new and exciting projects starting to emerge and the stoke is palpable!

Some of you will remember back in the day when we had a mountain bike operation in the summer months and even hosted a couple of large events including a UCI World Cup downhill race in 1998. While mountain bikes and the biking scene have...
