Overview by Steve Jermanok

Seattle skiers know it as the Summit at Snoqualmie dichotomy. One day you can be whipping down their signature run, Upper International, on a fresh layer of powder, the next day fighting the ice, rain, and fog on a cruiser like Golden Nugget that's supposedly groomed, thus earning the nickname, "Snowcrummy." That's the chance you take when tackling four hills whose base elevation is the lowest of any ski area in the Cascade Range. On the plus side, there's the convenience. Less than an hour drive on I-90 from Seattle, more skiers flock to Snoqualmie than any other ski resort in Washington and Oregon. This can lead to crowded parking lots on weekends. It's far more tranquil on weekdays, especially at night when the lights stay on until 10 p.m.

One fact that's undeniable: More Seattle and Tacoma skiers have learned to ski at Snoqualmie than any other mountain in the state. Summit West has gentle slopes and more than 500 instructors on hand to teach the skills necessary to link together those first turns. Wide-open groomers like Easy Rider and Little Thunder help the newbie skier and boarder gain confidence. Also on this short summit is a halfpipe and terrain park to show off your latest tricks.

The music is also blaring at Summit Central's terrain park, with big launch ramps, great jibs and boxes, and some easy rollers. Hot doggers congregate around the superpipe with 17-foot walls. Central is where beginners graduate to once they hone their skills on West. Try the intermediate cruiser Golden Nugget off the Central Express Quad or Outback off the newest high-speed quad installed, Silver Fir. There are also some introductory blacks off this lift, short
