Summit Ski Area’s unbroken streak of operation dates all the way back to 1927, making it the nation’s second oldest continuously operating ski destination. In 10 separate decades, skiers have strapped on their skis and negotiated the terrain’s 306 feet of vertical drop, slaloming down runs such as Bumble Bee, Yellow Jacket, and Alpine Trail to the base elevation of 4,000 feet. The spot also boasts 15 kilometers of Nordic trails designed by four-time Olympian Bill Koch. Opened to cross-country skiers in 1992, the trails help round out the area’s snow-sport offerings, which also include skiing, snowboarding, tubing, and abominable-snowman taunting.
