Summit Lake Ski Area
Summit Lake Ski Hill south of Nakusp in the Nakusp Range has been managed and maintained by volunteers for the past 30 years. The ski area offers downhill skiing and snowboarding on 10 runs ranging from beginner to expert levels. Snowmobiling is also offered in the area. In addition to the fantastic downhill conditions, Summit Lake also offers spectacular cross country trails, both groomed and ungroomed.

Summit Lake: The lake and the marsh are the headwaters for Bonanza Creek that drains into Slocan Lake. The area is still sparsely inhabited by humans but is home to beaver, muskrat, otter, weasel, deer, elk, black bear, grizzly bears, cougar,herons, osprey, bald and grey eagles, hawk, owls, humming birds and the occasional moose and yeti. There are no amenities here, other than the recreation site and the Ski Hill.

Summit Lake Ski Area is located 10 miles (16 km) southeast of Nakusp in the Kootenays region of British Columbia. From Revelstoke and Nakusp take Hwy 23 southeast to the Summit Lake Ski Area.
