Operations Update

The fun never ends at Alpental, and it appears as though winter isn't ready to quit either. Wednesday night Alpental got over 6" of fresh snow on the upper mountain!

A nice shot before what looks like a decent weekend ahead. Checkout the forecast.

We still plan to operate Alpental each weekend thru May 7, 2017. Summit Central and all other base areas are closed for the season.

Summit Parks - #Alpypark

Don't stop shredding! The Summit Parks crew is working on updating the Alpental spring park. Expect some new features and a refresh for this weekend. The one-of-a-kind park is open Saturday and Sunday, no PEEps/Park Pass required and we plan to keep it going till the end of the season at Alpental. Follow the action on instagram.
