Good afternoon! We've received 3" to 4" new of very light snow this morning with more currently falling. The skier pack underneath has gotten slightly firm in a few places so keep your wits about you but overall everything is riding very nice. Groomers are smooth and easily carve-able with a nice fresh coating on top. Continue to keep an eye on the weather today as snowfall totals could sneak up there by this evening. It might not be full on free refills but your tracks will surely be half-full. Be sure to check WSDOT for closure updates before you head out and expect the drive to be a little longer than normal with the low snow levels. The closure this morning has preserved the snow so if you're thinking of coming up this afternoon do it! Have a great day and be safe out there. -Ryan

OPERATIONS UPDATE Both directions of I-90 over Snoqualmie Pass are now open, and so is Summit West. If you were unable to get to the mountain to use what you purchased for today, we will automatically issue a credit that you can use to purchase anything in our online store, including tickets for another day. Credits will be issued in the form of a voucher to guest accounts in our online store. Credits take 2-4 days to be issued. More information has been emailed to ticket/rental purchasers.

The forecast is calling for more rounds of light snowfall as we head into the weekend and opening of Summit Central. So if you can't make it up today, start making plans for Friday and beyond!

Early Season Conditions Exist: Total snow depth is still low, so please look ahead and watch for both marked and unmarked hazards. Conditions and coverage will be best on the main runs. Be very cautious if you venture off skier-packed or groomed areas as the snow that formed our base isn’t super dense which means rocks, sticks, and other hazards may be hidden just below the surface. Ski and ride with care, it's only the beginning and we all want to enjoy a long and fun season!

Have an Ikon Pass? Reservations are now open for the season. You can make your reservation in your account at ikonpass.com. You'll also be able to skip the ticket window and go direct-to-lift this winter thanks to our new RFID access system.

Already ordered and wondering where your pass is? Passes purchased prior to Sep 20 have now been mailed. Passes purchased after Sep 20 must be picked up at the mountain at one of our new self-service pickup boxes. Currently we have two pickup boxes installed at Summit West near the ticket windows in the lower plaza and more will be installed at other areas soon.

  • Snowfall amounts for 12hr (overnight), 24hr, and 48hr timeframes are based on measurements taken at 5am daily. 24hr and 48hr snow totals are cumulative, so whatever fell in the last 24 is built into the 48. Between 5pm and 5am our weather data is automatically updated based on telemetry data from Northwest Avalanche Center and represents our overnight totals.

    The "Since 5am" snowfall amount is based on manual measurements taken periodically throughout the day.
