Summit 2030 is the future of Summit at Snoqualmie in Washington. It’s a visionary, massive, multi-year undertaking by Summit’s owner Boyne Resorts to improve virtually all aspects of the ski area. Eight new or improved lifts, new lodges, extended snowmaking, and more are all part of the big plan for one of Washington’s most visited ski areas.

“Summit 2030 is our vision for the future of your home mountain. Our trail forward is designed for our local outdoor community, those that call Washington home and share their love of playing in the mountains with friends and family. It’s a plan built to enhance the experience from Summit East to the top of Alpental, to provide outdoor fun across seasons, to make your escape even easier and more convenient, and to ensure responsible growth no matter the type.” – Summit at Snoqualmie

The Summit 2030 plan includes: 

  • replacing the Hidden Valley double with a triple chair by the 2022-23 season
  • opening a bike park at Silver Fir this summer
  • adding more chairs to the Armstrong Express
  • setting up RFID ticketing by next season
  • replacing both Sessel and Edelweiss at Alpental with fixed-grip triple chairs
  • construction of the new and long-anticipated International lift
  • the installation of remote-operated avalanche control systems 
  • replacing the Central Express at Summit Central with a bigger, newer chair
  • replacing the Triple 60 with a detachable quad
  • building a brand new lodge, additional snowmaking, and an alpine coaster at Central
  • replacing the Wildside and Pacific Crest chairs with a detachable quad and six-seater chair
  • With Alterra’s $100 million plan for Washington’s Crystal Mountain and Vail’s planned expansion for Stevens Pass, Boyne Resorts has stepped up to the plate and entered the ski resort arms race to invest, expand, and conquer. The full Summit 2030 plan can be read on the resort’s website.
