Summit Ski Area is a small ski park located on Mount Hood, alongside the Mount Hood Highway (U.S. Route 26) in Government Camp, Oregon. Built in 1927, it is the oldest ski area in the Pacific Northwest. In addition to downhill skiing and snowboarding, Summit also offers innertubing and Nordic trails.[1] The resort has a chairlift called "Homestead Lift" [2] and a rope tow. NOTE: Their web site currently states that they no longer have a rope tow (March 2010).[3]
