The Summit is a machine designed to make money. The average costumer experience can only be rated as Poor. The resort is so close to a major city that guests are disposable and thus the resort only has to pay lip service to costumer service. However If you are looking for a place to learn how to ski and don't want to spend much cash they do offer the $119 beginner package which for three days of skiing+ lessons is a steal! Additionally if you are a seasoned pro and you know what you want the BC at Alpental is exceptional. This all said families steer clear of this resort for your weekend outings, your hard earned cash will be better spent other places.
