The Summit at Snoqualmie

The Summit at Snoqualmie is just an hour outside of Seattle and is home to four mountains that offer a place for every skier or snowboarder. While the snowmaking ability only covers one percent of the area, they don’t really need it with an average snowfall of 435 inches a year.

Close to Seattle—Affordable Skiing

From early December through April, Seattle winter lovers and vacationers can experience skiing at every level with four mountains in one ski resort: Alpental, Summit Central, Summit West, and Summit East. Alpental is where it’s at if you are advanced and need a challenge in life. With some of the most challenging terrain in all of North America, including large cliffs, unexpected snow conditions, and generally an all around good time, the staff at the resort provides excellent training and preparation for you before you head to the backcountry. Enroll in the safety classes before you hit Alpental and know your skill level as the vertical drop is as high as 2,280 feet. Alpental has a high-speed quad, three doubles, and one surface lift exporting you up to the world of powder, ice, and downhill adrenaline.

The rest of us humans will be down about 1,500 feet in elevation at one of the less challenging mountains. Summit Central offers more diverse terrain, but also offers something for the beginners. It’s also where riders will find their terrain parks with over 30 acres to play six nights a week. Central Park is truly one of the most up-to-date and exciting terrain parks in the U.S. with nearly 25 features like the largest jib fleet, three new pole jams, two ‘C’ rails, down bars and rails, banked ‘C’ box, stair sets, and mini balls, just to name a few. The beginners won’t have to go far on Summit Central to find a terrain park to practice and learn with Greenhor Acres offering three boxes and one down rail. Summit Central is where you will also find the majority of the night skiing, with a total of 600 acres with lift access.

Summit East is a bit smaller but still offers some excellent tough terrain with blacks and blues for intermediates to explore, as well as some backcountry. For the majority of the day, you’ll also find rugged trails through frozen lakes and streams, as well as alpine meadows to explore through the nordic center. Snowshoe or cross-country ski either by your self or with a guide on over over 30 miles of nordic area. Finally, we’ve come to Summit West, primarily for beginners. Also available for night skiing, West is a great place for families to spend the day with beginners taking lessons while mom and dad hit the black diamond or blue trails. This a great place for you or your kids to get introduced to the world of skiing. The resort offers lessons with numerous instructors and facilities designed to make it easy for families to enjoy the slopes together.

Off the Slopes

Each of the mountains have more than one restaurants and bars to relax in either before or after you ski. Take a break mid-mountain, sip on some hot cocoa or coffee, experience the winter and all it has to offer with an easy to access resort with plenty of options for you and the entire family. You won’t be able to shop all day long, but there are a few ski shops for your rentals or if you need additional gear and accessories. All in all, the resort offers quite a bit for a great value so close to the big city.
