Catch a lift in June

Mount Washington opens scenic summer ski lift ride for season beginning this Saturday

To celebrate the start of the summer season, Mount Washington will be running its popular scenic chairlift rides on weekends in June. The first chair ascends the mountain this Saturday at 11 a.m.

“We’re operating our Mile High Scenic Chairlift over the next three weekends,” said Don Sharpe, Director of Business Operations and Marketing. “To kick off the summer season, the resort is pleased to play host to the inaugural Dave Battison Pediatric Sports Medicine Symposium. The conference is intended for anyone who is working with youth and children in sports. Additionally, our wedding season is already well underway, so it makes sense to open early to give everyone an opportunity to see the amazing views from the top of Mount Washington.”

Starting this Saturday, the resort will have dining and shopping seven days a week. Daily summer operations begin June 28. In addition to the Mile High Scenic Chairlift Rides, there will be Bungee Trampoline, mini golf, kids’ games, play area and a newly designed disc golf course.
