We Made Snow Last Night- Here Are Your Snow Summit Stats:

We were able to fire up the snowmaking system for several hours last night. Our groomers were out resurfacing the entire resort as well. This is why we have the best conditions in Southern California for skiing and riding- hands down. Let’s get to the numbers. 14 Lifts Spinning at 8:30 am 19 Trails 58 jibs, hits and features for your sliding enjoyment More sun and fun for everyone!

Westridge Wednesday!

What started out as just another typical day for our Park Crew Supervisor, Ryan the worm, Wormsbecker, turned into his best day ever. He has dreamed of this moment since he was a young child designing features in the sand on the beach. He knew that this could eventually be a possibility but not now, not so soon after his Powder Bowl victory. (Did you miss the Powder Bowl? Watch it now.) Could this be his moment in the sun? We think so. With the help of his tireless Snow Summit Park Staff, they have done what so many have tried to do before. They have returned Westridge back to it’s glory days! Ryan and his park staff have put in a new Wall Ride just for you, as well as other new features that get switched out every week so no one ever has to get bored on their […]

We Made Snow

  It’s been a busy morning for the crew while they were preparing our resort for a fantastic day. We made snow! The snow guns were running early this morning while you were getting your beauty sleep. Then the groomers started working on uniform corduroys. Most people don’t like Mondays. It’s a different case for the ones that ride mid-week. These are the ones that wait for Mondays because it’s the beginning of their week in the snow. They know that during the middle of the week is the time when they can come up, park, gear up, get right on a chair and take big wide turns at their own pace. It makes for a very calm and peaceful session. If you’re a mid-week skier or rider, you’re knodding your head in agreement right now. You can expect mostly sunny skies and mild temperatures. Our base depth is 8 – 24” […]
