Mount Washington Alpine Resort will open this Friday for the 2015/16 winter season.
The decision to start spinning the lifts comes after the mountain received a metre of snow this past week.
“We are thrilled to be opening on time and with such amazing conditions,” says Director of Business Operations Don Sharpe. “We have had back-to-back weather systems that came as copious amounts of snow. Staff training started in earnest once the systems hit and we are excited to welcome them and our guests back on Friday!”
With the snow plentiful, and more in the forecast, the conditions are setting up the Resort for a great start to the season.
“The past week has been awesome for setting up a good base and more snow is forecast with cooler temperatures for the rest of the week,” says Jessie Percival, Director of Ski Patrol. “We now have amazing early season coverage and have a well-bonded base.”
He adds, “The Snow cats will be out on the slopes everyday now until we open on Friday so we would ask that guests refrain from going into the Alpine while we prepare.”
In addition to the Alpine downhill terrain, the resort will be opening its world-class Nordic area with Cross Country skiing and snowshoeing as well at the ever popular Tube Park; fun for families and thrill-seekers.
An announcement on lift openings, terrain and updated hours of operation will be made Thursday. Check back at mountwashington.ca, Facebook, or sign up for our snow report for the latest information.
