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.

Instructional Courses

Snow School at Mount Washington

Welcome to the Snow School at Mount Washington Alpine Resort. Our snow school has seen many changes over the last few years with one thing in mind....YOU, our customer. Our programs are dynamic and fun, the way skiing and riding is supposed to be. Whether you are a first time skier or rider or someone looking to brush up on their skills, we have something for you. The best part is all of our programs offer small class sizes, as recommended by the Canadian Ski Council, and extend lift line priority to you which means more time skiing and riding and less in line.
