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... More

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... More

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.

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!

Family of four cost us $60 for just utilizing the tubbing area. We didn't ask if that's covered the ski area too. But overall, it's too expensive. They act as if they're the only bloody ski area there. I wish someone else come up with a new area who charge less. Put them out of business.

I took my family with children ages 5-10 to go tubing for the first time at $20 a ticket. Once tickets were purchased very little instruction was provided other than how to ride down the hill (and the 'ready, set, go!'). My kids went first and myself next. Given the icy conditions we all slid up the ramp and came... More

With two kids (5 and 8 yrs) who have grown up in Texas and not used to snow, I was looking to take a day trip for them to play in the snow and do some snow tubing. Determined to not waste my day fighting long lines and crowded parking lots - bad memories from my last visit to Mt.... More

I took our grandkids skiing for the first time at Summit recently. I've been to Mt. Hood Meadows and other places and think this is an ideal place for beginners. There is one chairlift and there are several easy runs down with enough variety that beginners will get the hang of things without a lot of disappointment. We were there... More

Summit was the perfect place to teach my daughter how to ski. She learned use of the chairlift, and their mild slopes were plenty challenging enough for her until she reached intermediate level. We bought 1/2 day tickets, (1-4pm, $18.00), which was plenty of skiing for her and was the most affordable option available on Mt. Hood. It was also... More
