How to Read Our Snow Data Above
Snowfall amounts for 12hr (overnight), 24hr, and 48hr timeframes are based on measurements taken at 5am daily. 24hr and 48hr snow totals are cumulative, so whatever fell in the last 24 is built into the 48. Between 5pm and 5am our weather data is automatically updated based on telemetry data from Northwest Weather and Avalanche Center and represents our overnight totals. The "Since 5am" snowfall amount is based on manual measurements taken periodically throughout the day.

January 16, 2017: We have overcast skies here at the Summit and are even seeing a few snow flakes earlier in the day than forecasts predict. All our areas are open today and you can expect tremendous turns on and off piste all across the mountain. The cold weather has kept the snow quality high making for consistently good groomers and pleasing turns off-piste. Head to Summit East for some casual, corduroy cruising, catch some air in the Summit Central terrain park, or session Alpental's Edelweiss bowl where temperatures are higher and you might soak up some sunshine . Wherever you choose to cruise, there are sure to be some tremendous turns on offer!
Notice: Because it's a holiday weekend we'll have each area open on Monday. Starting this weekend Summit East, the Nordic Center, and Silver Fir are now open until 4pm.
With winter in top gear it's very important to check the WSDOT for information about road and weather conditions over Snoqualmie Pass and be prepared for possible winter travel conditions, closures, and delays.
