The Summit at Snoqualmie

Less than an hour from Seattle, The Summit at Snoqualmie including Alpental Ski Area, has possibly the best access in the nation with an interstate right to the resort, and less than an hour from downtown Seattle. Operating seven days a week, including six nights, The Summit and Alpental provide an easy, affordable escape for city residents. From value priced Big S season passes, two terrain parks, a superpipe, and winter-tubing to Nordic skiing, rental season passes and lesson packages for all abilities, The Summit is a total choice, day-area destination. Now bigger and better than ever, The Summit expanded its terrain at the Summit East base area during the 2010-2011 winter season, installing two chairlifts, adding 65 acres and providing access to runs last accessible over 20 years ago. Additionally, Alpental is infamous as one of the most challenging ski areas in the country with widely-renowned backcountry terrain.
