2019-20 Opening Day

We are stoked to announce that The Summit at Snoqualmie will open for the 2019-20 winter season with limited operations on December 15, 2019. Summit West has recieved 13"-24" of snow over the last four days and thanks to significant brush cutting efforts this summer along with a little magic from our snow grooming team, that has given the main runs enough coverage to kick things off! Keep in mind, since we're still at low tide our operations at Summit West will be limited. It's time to get all you loyal locals out on the mountain for the first turns of the season!

CAUTION: Early Season Conditions Exist

Snow depth is low, so please look ahead and watch for both marked and unmarked hazards. Conditions and coverage will be best on the main runs and upper half of the mountain. There's less coverage on lower slopes and terrain approaching the bottom of the lifts so please slow down in those areas. Ski and ride with care, it's only the first weekend and we all want to enjoy a long and fun season!
