Right on


Skiing at Snoqualmie Summit hasn’t changed too much over the years. I grew up in the late 80s when snowfall was a lot more hit-and-miss. I think snow insurance started after a few bad seasons in the late ’80s when the Summit was only open for a few weeks and closed that year for lack of snow. It seems like we’ve had a lot more snow consistently in the last decade than when I was a kid. 

The actual skiing experience at the Summit hasn’t changed much in the last 40yrs, there are a few more runs open, more terrain, and the facilities have been upgraded and added on to but not by a lot. 

Thunderbird restaurant used to be the place to have lunch until it was shut down and then burned down. It had a fantastic view; they should open it up again. 

I would say the most significant changes have happened at Central. More runs, terrain park, better lifts, and more overall ski area in front and the best parking. The main lodge area upgrades have made Central the best of all the areas in the Summit family for me. 

What are your thoughts?
