It's been an incredible first weekend of the 2021-22 winter season and it's almost time for night skiing at The Summit!

Night skiing at Summit Central begins this week on Tuesday, Dec 21 with night skiing until 10pm.

Just like years past, night skiing at Alpental begins the first week of January.

We plan to go straight into daily operations right away. Summit West will be open daily through the holidays and then switch into its normal schedule.

We are eager to open more areas, lifts and terrain as conditions allow. With more snow in the forecast for early this week and possibly more later in the week, Summit Central, Silver Fir, and Alpental might not be too far behind Summit West.

Conditions permitting, we plan to open for night skiing starting December 21.

The Tubing Park is not open yet, but we hope to make an opening announcement this week! Snow tubing tickets will go on sale when we announce an opening for the season. Tubing tickets are limited and do sell out.

Summit West to open on Tuesday, December 14.

Get ready, the day you've been waiting for is about to arrive! The Summit at Snoqualmie will open to passholders for the 2021-22 winter season on December 14th at Summit West. This week mother nature provided heaps of snow and thanks to over a foot of fresh that fell Friday night, we now have enough to start preparing the mountain for opening. The first two days of operations will be limited, and for Summit & Ikon passholders only. 

We plan to go straight into daily operations right away. Summit West will be open daily through the holidays and then switch into its normal schedule.

We are eager to open more areas, lifts and terrain as conditions allow. With more snow in the forecast for early this week and possibly more later in the week, Summit Central, Silver Fir, and Alpental might not be too far behind Summit West.

The Tubing Park is not open yet, but we hope to make an opening announcement this week! Snow tubing tickets will go on sale when we announce an opening for the season. Tubing tickets are limited and do sell out.

Keep up those snow dances and stay tuned for more news!
