FULL SNOW REPORT | LIFT STATUS

6IXPAK holders - updated March 18, 2015

Thanks for your patience.

Mount Washington, along with all of the West Coast of North America and every other coastal resort, was hit by the Pineapple Express during the week of February 7. As a result, the mountain's snowpack, especially at lower elevations, became too lean to continue with its operations.

We will review the 6IXPAK program in April 2015.

The majority of our seasons are filled with snow and some seasons are leaner than others.

We value our dedicated customers and will advise you on the status of your 6ixpak(s) by mid April.
