Ski Patrol


Mount Washington Alpine Resort recognizes the deep history and cultural significance of the lands where we recreate. We are grateful to work and play within the unceded traditional territory of the K’ómoks First Nation in the mountains of the Pentlatch, E'iksan, Sahtloot and Sasitla peoples.

A peace dance in the mountains was shared in the summer of 2020 by the Kumugwe Cultural Society. Through sharing the songs and dances of the K’omoks and Kwakwaka’wakw peoples, the Kumugwe Dancers are able to help facilitate respect and understanding within the local community and communities abroad. Watch the video now.
