“Worst place ever”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

Used a groupon for 6 people. Had called in advance to confirm we could trade 2 learn to snowboard packages for 2 tubing with children packages (less overall cost for tubing than lesson) was told yes that would be fine/not an issue. Upon arrival wasn't given correct tickets even though told the girl(Sarah) what we were doing. Went to tube and told needed tickets for children. Went back to get tickets and was told we needed to pay $45 for children tubing explained again what we were requesting and had confirmed week before. Was basically called a liar and quoted "policy" by supervisor. The basic math that I was paying more than if we had come without a groupon meant nothing. And then to find that the amenities were substandard. Not even their own public restrooms spend the extra and go elsewhere. Anywhere else.

“Really aweful service!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2013

Came here on a Groupon and will never go back again. Just to get through the line to get our hang tags was ridiculous. The ladies at the registers were rude...I observed a lot of first timers and diverse ethnic families that were taking lessons and I felt the ladies were very condescending in their customer service. Then to add to the register bottleneck, you have to go through that SAME line to pay for a soda, lunch or coffee? Walked over to the gas station next door to grab a soda!

The equipment rental guys were rude too as well as the guys running the lift...seemed like this place would be trying to promote a small family business feel. Oh, even saw a father and young son getting reprimanded for throwing snowballs.

Yuk, will never go back again and would not recommend this place to anyone. Spend a couple dollars more and go to the other resorts on Hood.

“Fun place, but don't expect to get your tickets quickly”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2013

Went here today with a groupon deal for tubing. It's a lot of fun, but wow what a crowd they had today. The most annoying thing was having to stand in a line for thirty minutes to get our hang tags. They really need to get this process streamlined for the future.

“Best place to learn to ski and board!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2013 via mobile

I love Summit my kids have been tubing and skiing here for 3 years!
It is cheaper than anywhere else on Hood and the hill is great for beginners to intermediate. We always have fun when we are there! The staff is friendly, competent, and SAFETY is their #1 priority!
Always a great experience at Summit!
