Resort COVID-19 Information


We're looking forward to sharing another long and fun winter with you! While this season may be a step or two closer to normal, there are still important restrictions and guidelines to follow when visiting the mountain to help ensure the health and safety of our staff, guests, and community.

The Summit is committed to providing the safest environment we can for your outdoor escape. We will remain flexible and continue to follow current state and county COVID-19 mandates, as well as CDC guidelines.

Please familiarize yourself with the information below prior to visiting the mountain this winter and be sure to check for updates following any significant changes to state or local mandates. As the COVID-19 pandemic develops we may change operations and policies as needed to protect the health and safety of our staff and guests.

MARCH 1ST UPDATE: Proof of vaccination is no longer required to dine inside at Summit West or Alpental. Proof of vaccination is not required at any Summit area as of March 1, 2022. Facial coverings will continue to be required indoors at The Summit until March 12, 2022.

Planning For Your Visit & The Season

  • All tickets, passes, lessons and services must be purchased online. Many of our products and services will have limited inventory. Plan ahead and be sure to purchase online in advance to improve your chances of getting what you prefer.

    Food and drinks do not need to be purchased online. However, select dining locations will have mobile ordering available.

  • Unlimited & LTD Season Pass inventory is limited.

    Lift ticket sales (day tickets primarily) will be limited on peak days to reduce the number of people during our busiest times in order to improve the experience at the mountain.

    Snow tubing tickets are limited and typically sell out on weekends. Plan and purchase well ahead to improve your chances of getting your desired date and session.

  • All season passes are mailed to the address on file via USPS. Season passes are not available for pickup at the mountain.

    Please watch for your pass to arrive in the mail at the passholder's address (not the purchaser address).

    • Passes will not be printed or mailed until a photo is uploaded.
    • If you have not received your pass in time for your first visit, please visit a ticket window during that area's operating hours to pickup a lift ticket for the day.

While at The Mountain

  • The Summit does not currently require guests be vaccinated to visit the resort. However, we do recommend vaccinations. Guests may enter our lodges and facilities without proof of vaccination. 

    Vaccinations are required for Summit staff.  Click here for more COVID-19 information for staff.

    • Masks are required in all indoor spaces.
    • Mask/Face covering must cover face, nose, and chin in all areas where masks are required. 
    • Masks must be multi-layer, at a minimum meeting CDC guidelines. Masks with holes do not meet requirements and are not acceptable. 
    • For the health and safety of staff and guests, you must be seated or stationary while eating. Please do not walk while eating or drinking with your mask down.
  • Face masks are recommended in lift lines, on our plazas/decks, and while waiting in any other lines. Please be considerate of your fellow snow sports enthusiasts and always leave space between yourself and others.

  • Operations at Summit West & Alpental (King County)

    As of March 1, 2022, guests are NO LONGER required to show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test result to dine inside establishments in King County. Through March 12, 2022, masks are required at all times indoors, except while seated and eating/drinking. 

    Operations at Summit Central & Summit East (Kittitas County)

    At this time we plan to have our usual dining establishments open at Summit Central, Silver Fir, and Summit East with indoor dining as an option. Through March 12, 2022, masks are required at all times indoors, except while seated and eating/drinking. Proof of vaccination is not required.

    All Dining Locations

    No brown bag lunch will be allowed in indoor dining spaces this season.

  • At this time we do not expect to have lift loading restrictions and look forward to returning to normal chair capacity and shorter lift lines. That means we will be grouping skiers and riders together (no singles) to fill each chair and you may need to ride chairs with individuals outside of your group.

    We will continue to follow state guidance and will adjust lift loading procedures and chair capacity as needed.

  • We are now operating as a cashless business. For purchases made at the mountain (retail shops, dining, etc) we accept all major credit/debit cards. We also accept mobile device payments at our food and beverage locations.

Thank You!

Thanks to our ski, snowboard, and outdoor community for partnering with us to follow Washington State COVID mandates as well as our resort guidelines and policies. We look forward to providing a fun and convenient escape for everyone while navigating the pandemic, and we couldn't do it without your help!
