Cinco de Mayo

May 05
9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Cinco de Mayo is on!

Cinco de Mayo at Alpental has developed into a tradition here at The Summit. Sometimes it marks the final day or weekend of our operations, but more importantly for local skiers and boarders it's a celebration of another great season here in the Pacific Northwest... with a Mexican twist! It's a sign that the snow pack is healthy, and spring skiing is alive and well. For many, Cinco de Mayo is the best spring skiing day of the year, made even better with good friends and festivities on the mountain.

Cinco de Mayo Festivities:

This year Cinco de Mayo will benefit the Northwest Avalanche Center (NWAC).
