COVID-19 Update: Operations Suspended

After careful consideration of the quickly changing situation surrounding COVID-19 in our region, and the world, The Summit will suspend operations at the end of the day March 15, 2020, until further notice. Given the circumstances and uncertainty around the spread of COVID-19, we believe this is the best course of action to help protect the health of our staff and guests.


This has been a very trying time for everyone and we want to thank all of our guests and staff for their patience and understanding as we work through this outbreak together. Please know this decision was not an easy one to make, as we know it has great impact to our staff, passholders, guests, and community. Ultimately, we feel it is essential to do our part to help mitigate the risk and spread of COVID-19 in our communities by suspending operations.


We anticipate heavy email and call volume over the coming days, and appreciate your patience as we respond to inquiries. Rest assured that if you purchased a lift ticket online for a future date, it will be automatically refunded. We will have more information about lesson reservations and other products in the coming week.


There is possibly more questions than answers at this moment. Suffice it to say, we plan to continue to evaluate the situation and share information as soon as possible on our website and through all our channels.


We whole-heartedly look forward to the day we can invite the region's skiers and snowboards back to the mountain. Until then, stay healthy and take care of yourselves and your loved ones.
