60 years ago Snow Summit started with a lift built using rope and car wheels bolted to trees. Those who remember the "rope tow" know the changes they have made in those 60 years, from rope tows to chairlifts and then to high speed detachable chairs. Snowmaking has gone from garage made contraptions attached to garden hoses to computer controlled fan guns producing great snow in marginal conditions and tons of snow when the weather is ideal.
Park features have replaced mogul fields. The big thermos of hot chocolate at the bottom of the run has morphed into a hundred food and beverage choices. The history has been colorful and fun, we are happy for them to be where they are. Here's to more great times at Snow Summit... Join them for their 60th anniversary year.
