Mount Washington Opens Friday, December 8th!

Mount Washington opens for our 2023/24 winter season on Friday, December 8th! We're so stoked to kick off our season with you tomorrow at the Whiskey Jack Chair, spinning from 9 am to 3:30 pm offering access to mid-mountain terrain. Two magic carpets will also be operating with access to beginner terrain, along with the Tube Park for snow-sliding fun. Down at the Nordic Centre at Raven Lodge, cross-country trails will be open for both skate skiing and snowshoeing. Even though Mother Nature hasn't quite woken up for winter yet, we're so thankful that we've had cold enough weather to make snow and supplement the natural 38cm snowbase off-piste with snowmaking on runs to open as scheduled. View more details below.

  • Alpine RunsCoaster, Retirement to Lower Linton's Loop, and the Terrain Park with a few small features with early season lift tickets only available to purchase in person.
  • Nordic Trails: West Passage, Jutland and Lookout (skate only, no tracks)
    Snowshoe trails: Old Cabin Loop, Snow Paws and Crooked Creek
  • Season Pass Office: Visit the Alpine Lodge office about your RFID card access
  • Lessons, Rentals & Retail: Open and offering full Guest Services
  • Food & Beverage: Ted's, Eagle View Bistro, Alpine Cafeteria, Raven Cafe
  • Shuttle Bus: View the Shuttle Bus schedule for timing and pickup locations
Be cautious of early season conditions around the mountain, and always check The Daily Dispatch feed and condition pages on our mobile app or website for resort status updates and all the information you need to improve your experience on the mountain. There is snow in the weekend forecast, and more terrain will open around the mountain as soon as it's safe to do so. Cheers to another great season here in Vancouver Island's coastal playground!
