A solid snow base and great March conditions call for extending the winter fun.

COMOX VALLEY March 14, 2017 – Mount Washington Alpine Resort leadership announced they are extending the 2016.17 winter season for one additional weekend. The Resort will close for daily operations on Sunday, April 2nd and will reopen for one additional weekend on Saturday, April 8th and Sunday, April 9th.  Favourite seasonal events, The Dummy Downhill and Slush Cup, will take place April 1st and 2nd as planned.  

“Throughout March, we have experienced some of the best skiing and riding conditions of the season,” states General Manager, Peter Gibson. “By extending our season, we can deliver an extra weekend of winter to our Season Pass Members and day ticket users - conditions are too outstanding to close just yet!”

The Resort will be operating the Eagle Express and Hawk SixPack with a partial Green Acres opening.
