Ready for more? The weekend is not over, get up here and enjoy it!

Summit Central, West, and lower Alpental are holding cold snow and great turns thanks to protection from the clouds and this wild inversion. ⛷️ @snow_troopers

Wondering what opening day at #Alpental will be like? Here's a preview. If tomorrow is anything like today it'll be loads of fun and have everything from sunny spring-like hot pow for schmootastic turns up top to legit pow turns down low, and even some smooth cold groomers for laying over a few lefts and rights. The definition of "variable conditions" thanks to a massive inversion with a huge temperature differential, but oh so much fun! See you tomorrow! 🏂@mountainsinthebackyard ⛷️ @norey_cugent @krystinnorman 📹: @markeywa


There's nothing quite like the views from the top.

Just one more day until Alpental opens for the season and you're enjoying these beautiful views for yourself. #home #Alpental #Sunset



More terrain=more fun!

You can plan on ripping turns off of even more lifts this weekend. Summit Central and Alpental are gonna join the party on Saturday! Details to come. 📷: @marceldolak

It's foggy out there, but @jay_kelly_ doesn't care, he's busy smashing and slashing through that Wildside chowdah! #chowdah #SummitWest #SummitatSnoqualmie #Wildside


The first Wildside laps of the season start in less than an hour! Let's ride! 🏂⛷️

See you in the morning for opening day at Summit West! Info via link in bio. #SummitWest #SummitatSnoqualmie



The wait is over! We're opening Summit West this weekend! We plan on spinning Wildside, Pacific Crest, Little Thunder, Upper Magic Carpet, and Julies 9am-4pm Saturday and Sunday. More details via link in bio. #winterishere #SummitWest #SummitatSnoqualmie


The snow is back! It's been dumping up here! At least 8 inches have accumulated today with more on the way! #letitsnow #snowing #winterisback #SummitatSnoqualmie #SnoqualmiePass


The snow isn't this deep today, but we do have deep lift ticket discounts all day! Link in bio.

What's ahead and when will The Summit open? Looking at the forecast and toward the coming week, it seems that the weather pattern may start to shift into what we prefer to see, more snowflakes! Hopefully mother nature will start adding snow to our existing, but modest base soon to position us for an opening within our normal time frame. At least the snow is falling again and there are a few more flakes in the forecast! 📷: @mikeyoshida

TODAY at Summit West! Jib Creek will be rippin top-to-bottom on Julies Chair. So grab $10, your helmet, and your shredding buddies and get up here to kick things off with @summitparks! Registration starts at 10am, riding starts at 11am. More info via link in bio. @lineskis @burtonnorthwest @powgloves @dakine @ridesnowboards #UpJibCreek #SummitWest #SummitatSnoqualmie


We are oh-so-close to being able to open! Although the snow has been accumulating, the temperatures and precipitation didn’t quite add up to our hopes and anticipation this week. While our mountain operations crew love what they see on the top half of the slopes at Summit West, the lower slopes and lift load areas just don't yet have the necessary coverage. The upside is, we do have a great base for the next round of snowfall to build upon and the snow is still coming down today.

We might not be opening Summit West quite yet, but we do have a super fun event on Saturday. #UpJibCreek is for skiers and snowboarders and will be held on Julies Chair. The Summit Parks crew has been working hard to create a ton of fun features and the best pre-season jib line we've ever had. Event fee is $10 and that includes lift access on Julies for Jib Creek. Lift access is only for participants and only for the roped and maintained jib line. Helmets required.


Every shot of snow gets us closer to opening day! We don't have quite enough snow at the lower elevations of Summit West to announce an opening... yet, but we will be assessing depth/conditions daily. The one thing we do know is that Up Jib Creek will be going down on Saturday! And we plan to run Julies for the event even if West isn't open, but for event participants only (jib line only). Hit the link in @summitparks bio for info.



We're stoked to introduce Corey Nugent, the new head coach of Alpental Freeride! @norey_cugent

There's not enough snow to open this weekend, but keep up those snow dances! If mother nature comes through for next weekend, we'll be ready!

The sun is setting on more than just these beautiful snow covered trees today. Preseason prices are also coming to a close, passes go to full winter prices starting tomorrow. If you don't have your pass yet, now would be a solid time to get one locked in. #SummitatSnoqualmie #Snow #winterishere


Almost 4 more inches of this beautiful stuff has fallen since this morning.


8" of fresh pow on this delightfully snowy Sunday morning. We're loving all this early snowfall, keep up those snow dances!

Don't forget, tomorrow is your last chance to save on season passes. Link in bio if you still need to order. #snowing #powder #SummitWest #SNOWqualmiepass #SummitatSnoqualmie #winter #dumpsvilleUSA

What if...


Roktoberfest at #Alpental is just one week away! Get your tickets now and join us for an evening of fun, games, plenty of @dru_bru, and music from @cobrahawkband. Link to tickets in bio. 21 and over only. #Oktoberfest #Roktoberfest #SnoqualmiePass #beer #craftbeer


It went full blizzard mode for about an hour earlier this morning. Picnic table depth is now up to about 5". Definitely not enough to open, but enough to send stoke levels thru the roof and get us all excited about the season ahead! #isitwinteryet #snow #SnoqualmiePass #SummitatSnoqualmie
