Summit East Opening Saturday

Finally! We know many of you have been looking forward to taking some turns at Summit East! Mother Nature blessed the mountain with over 20” of fresh snow in the last 48 hours, providing the much needed boost to base depth and coverage we needed to get that mountain area prepped to start loading chairs.

Important Operational Information

  • 9 AM - 3 PM
  • Parking Icon
    No Shuttle, Park At Base Area
  • Cross Over Trails
    Crossover Trails Closed

Due to reduced daylight hours this time of the year, Summit East will close at 3pm each day it’s open. We plan to operate East Peak, Hidden Valley, and Rampart chairs. Please keep in mind that our Summit Shuttles are not operating this season due to COVID-19. So please plan ahead, consider where you park, and when each lift closes in order to get back to your vehicle at the end of the day. At this time, we do not expect the crossover trails to and from Summit East to be open this weekend. Be sure to check the trail report for the current status each day.

Planned Chair Lifts For Summit East Opening Day

    • East Peak
    • 9 AM - 3 PM
    • Hidden Valley
    • 9 AM - 3 PM
    • Rampart

Nordic Center Opening

The Nordic Center will be opening Saturday as well. We expect to have Cold Creek out to the Brooks Warming Hut and the majority of the upper trails out of Grand Junction open this weekend. Mount Catherine Loop will likely be closed due to avalanche hazard. Check the Nordic trail report each morning for the status on trails and grooming.

Nordic Tickets Now Available Online

No Food Service At Summit East

Sorry, we do not currently have outdoor dining options at Summit East. Please plan to eat at your vehicle or visit one of our other base areas for outdoor dining options, or stop by the Tacos El Guero food truck at Summit West, or the Polish Cuisine On Wheels truck located near the crosswalk in the main Summit Central parking lot. As with all our mountain areas, lodge use will be restricted to restroom and rental pickup only.
