FULL SNOW REPORT | LIFT STATUS

6IXPAK holders - updated Feb. 23, 2015

Thanks for your patience as we wait for snow. We continue to be hopeful that we will get the opportunity to reopen. We are committed to provide our customers with the best possible ski and snowboard experience every day of the season. While weather and snowfall are not in our control, we work diligently with what we are given to produce the best ski and snowboard product on Vancouver Island.

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.

6IXPAKs are sold at a discounted rate, and they are intended to be used throughout the season, not on one specific day or period. We anticipate many more opportunities to use your 6IXPAK tickets. 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 want the weather to turn around as much as you do. We still have time. The snow could still come. It’s up to Mother Nature now to make it happen.

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.
