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.

Important Safety Notice: Avalanche danger is high in the Alpental valley. Yesterday Rock Face was naturally triggered and slid big, running all the way down to the magic carpet carrying a massive amount of debris and force. Alpental is currently closed and our uphill travel policy is still active. That means uphill travel at Alpental is strictly prohibited. For the safety of yourself and others, do not tour or hike up Alpental. Our pro patrol team will be active on the mountain today doing control work so it's very important to steer clear of the entire permit area of the ski area. We also highly recommend avoiding any backcountry travel in the greater Alpental Valley. Thank you, and stay safe fellow skiers and boarders!
April 17, 2018: Summit Central is now closed for the season. Thanks for partying at the pond skim with us last weekend! It was a really good time and a great way to finish the season at Summit Central. It's now down to Alpental, where we plan to stay open weekends through May 6. So don't put your gear away yet, there's still plenty of spring shred ahead!
All restrictions for LTD and X-Passes have been lifted. Holders of these passes can now ski anytime we're open at Alpental for the rest of the season! Enjoy!
