  • Compared to destination ski resorts, The Summit at Snoqualmie cannot compare. The elevation gain is not that impressive, and the relatively low altitude means that the snow quality is not always good....  more »
  • We came here as part of a morale event during a weekday (to escape the rush). It is a couple of hours drive from Seattle. We got there in the AM, got the necessary instructions, grabbed a tube and off...  more »
  • We live on the east side and find the summit to be super convenient to get kids few ski lessons in the winters. It is a short one hour drive and ski slopes are not super crowded and have lots of kids ...  more »

  • I didn't go to the ski resort. I went hiking to the Lakes. I got lucky with a gorgeous day. My buddies up here picking mushrooms like a madman. From what he says there's a bunch of different Delicacies up here really tasty really hard to find mushrooms. I'm not into one myself but he is just enjoying the hell out of it. Now let's talk about this hike. Amazing. This is definitely one of the best hikes I've ever been on. It's just got a little bit of everything actually a whole lot of everything. Lakes many waterfalls beautiful Creek that you even have to cross over at a point or two so make sure you wear ankle high waterproof boots at least. Decent hiking boots are a must. Right now it's late November. I would love to come back in the late spring when all this vegetation would be in bloom. I could only imagine how gorgeous it must be. It's about 1/8 and a half mile round trip hike with steady elevation gain the entire time. So be ready for a medium too intensive hike. But I tell you it sure is worth it.
  • I love this mountain ! It has some pretty good runs . couple years ago they had a freestyle area .. Halfpipe rails stuff like that don't no if they still do it .
  • So close to the city, yet with rewarding outdoor experiences for people of all ages. Well worth a visit, or two, or three for a good sport. Just check weather/road condition (WSDOT) and dress accordingly before heading up. If you can't tolerate little bit of drizzling or slush, sorry to say, this place is not for you; also hate to ask, why did u come to Seattle in the first place? Remember, a bad day skiing is better than a boring day sitting around doing nothing. Play safe and share the lanes, welcome back to the nature!
  • Would really like to see the summit improve parking and shuttles, and avoid over-selling. Yesterday took 1.5 hours from parking to snow. Our shuttle passed a line of about 35 skiers in the lot and a distraught woman waived down our driver because apparently they'd been waiting for an hour for a shuttle. At end of day, ended up having to walk about 1/2 mile (I'm guessing) because here was no shuttle stop or shuttles to get us back to our car. This was with 3 kids on a busy road. Writing as I think it's helpful for others to know this in advance, but also sincerely hope the management will take steps to address these issues.
  • Convenience is Snoqualmie's best attribute. The mountain is situated 50 miles east from Seattle, which is undeniably close. You can go here for a day of skiing and still have time to do something else with your evening when you get home. In terms of actual skiing, Snoqualmie is just OK. A decent place to learn, but clearly inferior to the other local mountains. The base is only 3000', which means that it has a lot of rain, and the quality of the snow is worse than the bigger local mountains. Competing resorts, Stevens and Crystal are located about twice as far from Seattle (1.5 hours to the NE or SE, respectively), but are far larger, and a full 1000' higher elevation than Snoqualmie, which means they get much less rain and much more snow. Also, being a much smaller hill, Snoqualmie has shorter and less diverse terrain. Generally speaking, Snoqualmie tends to be a good mountain for beginners and teenagers, whereas more serious skiers tend to prefer the bigger mountains. Snoqualmie is a tradeoff. You get a smaller mountain, by driving less far from the city into the mountains. I give it only 3 stars because they seem to know they don't have to try very hard, they can rely on their proximity to the city for business. For example, they still use old-fashioned lift tickets that require you to wait in LONG lines (no RFID passes you can load online from home). And of course, the prices are every bit as high as what the larger competitors charge. I went to Snoqualmie yesterday and despite only having 3 lifts open in the whole resort. they were still charging full price for tickets. On the one hand I was pissed they would charge so much for such limited operation, but on the other hand, with the warmer weather lately and their low elevation, I suppose they are probably hurting for money pretty badly. I wonder how long they'll be able to stay in business...
