Mount Washington puts ski season on hold

Continued warm temperatures and rain have finally got the best of Mount Washington Alpine Resort

Continued warm temperatures and rain have finally got the best of Mount Washington Alpine Resort.

The Pineapple Express, a surge of moisture direct from the Hawaiian Islands not only brought rain, but warm temperatures and rising freezing levels. The resort staff all worked hard to stay open but the third express in the past four weeks has finally taken its toll.

As of Monday, the resort has put its winter 2014/15 operations on hold until further notice.

“We have every belief and hope that we will reopen sometime soon,” says Don Sharpe, Director of Business Operations and Marketing. “But we’re now at the point where there’s simply no snow left to farm or move around.”
