With the official start of spring only a week away, Mount Washington is experiencing deja vu from Christmas 2010- when the mountain received the most snow it had ever seen in a one week period.

“The accumulations have been tracking very similar to that big week last season,” explains resort spokesperson Brent Curtain. “The skies have unleashed 2 metres of snow in the last few days and everybody is stoked.”

Mount Washington now has the deepest mid-mountain snowpack in Canada at 520cms. The resort has received over 1100cms of total snowfall this season.

Forecasts are calling for continuing light snowfall throughout the week with temperatures in the -4C to -7C range.

“With spring right around the corner, we're offering pristine mid-winter conditions,” Curtain adds.

Skiers and snowboarders can ride daily at the Island mountain until April 22, 2012.
