Investing In The Future

Summit 2030 is our vision for the future of your home mountain. Our trail forward is designed for our local outdoor community, those that call Washington home and share their love of playing in the mountains with friends and family. It's a plan built to enhance the experience from Summit East to the top of Alpental, to provide outdoor fun across seasons, to make your escape even easier and more convenient, and to ensure responsible growth no matter the type.

SUMMIT 2030Our Focus

The Alpental Aspect


Elevating the experience at Alpental is all about improving access to the unique and challenging terrain that local skiers and snowboarders have grown to love, for generations. From installing the long-awaited International Chair, to increasing capacity on Armstrong Express, to adding new and upgraded avalanche control systems... it's about getting you more of what you love.

Summit Transformed



With so many unique areas to explore, we're planning for lift and lodge improvements that make it easier to find more fun each and every time you visit the mountain. Whether you're enjoying turn-after-turn in your favorite spots, stopping for a bite to eat, or discovering parts of The Summit you've never experienced.

Summit Summers

You play in the mountains year round, so at The Summit, we should too. From scenic chairlift rides to mountain biking, disc golf, mountain adventures, music, and festivals - our path forward includes focused investments to provide access to outdoor recreation and enjoyment during our beautiful Cascadian summers.

Easier Escapes

easier access


Over the next decade we plan to continuously improve your experience from your phone to our chairlifts. Through new digital experiences, paving parking lots, and RFID access, our vision is of an even more convenient outdoor escape no matter your preferred activity, needs, or the season.




A never-ending quest, our team strives to become responsible stewards of our environment, and our community. Fostering growth and access where needed, while being mindful to minimize excess. As well as building a stable, sustainable employee environment with the help of additional housing solutions and off-mountain transit programs. Our composting program and LED lighting initiative are just the beginning.
