February 10 Weekly Update

From our mountain family to yours, adventures are always better together, even from a distance. It's The MEMO - Your Weekly Guide to Adventure on Wednesday, February 10.

We're so lucky to have this mountain oasis available to explore, and our Lift Operations team does so much behind the scenes to make the magic happen. The reality is, we're hiring! A lot of Lifties are needed to run the resort and keep the chairlifts spinning. There's plenty of season left to join our mountain family and take advantage of employee perks and fun times. Head to hr.mountwashington.ca to apply for a gig! We'd love to have you.

Also in this week's episode, check out what's new in the Terrain Park - have you hit the new Mini-Park off Frog Legs trail yet? Hear from our Park Crew with more on what's new and some safety tips to improve your ride. They've been keeping features in top shape lately for the View Tour Virtual Slopestyle competition on now. Registration and submission deadline is coming up this Sunday! Interested? Find out more and sign up here.

Snow is in the forecast and with this being a long weekend for BC Family Day, things are sure to be busy up here at Mt. Washington. Alpine Day Tickets, Rentals, Tube Park time slots, and more activities have limited space and will sell out quickly! Ensure you're booking experiences now ahead of time, arrive at the mountain early, and be prepared to follow all resort protocols during your visit. Maintain distance, mask up, and have fun - a little patience goes a long way. Enjoy the adventure, wherever you're headed.

Need Help With Alpine Lift Tickets? Please Read!

Q. How can I be guaranteed lift access for the day I want to ski?
A) 
Alpine Tickets are now available to reserve online for the rest of the season and may sell out on holidays and weekends. We will not have full-day tickets to buy here at the resort, and half-days and specialty tickets will only be available at a kiosk if full-days have not already sold out. Reserve your days in advance, online. 6ixPak tickets do not require reservations. This doesn't include pre-arranged tickets such as 2-for-1 Passes from VIB, or non-date specific tickets.   Purchase Your Tickets & Learn More ->

Q. I've booked a day to ski, but I couldn't make it, or need to reschedule for a later date:
A.
If you need to cancel your reserved lift tickets, please call us or fill out a Contact Form to change to a day later in the season, but a specific visit date is required and ticket price must be brought up to that requested current day's rate if different. This can't be done online. Your patience is appreciated in hearing back from our team. 

Q. Buying a New Card and want to Reload for Next Time? Need Tickets for Multiple Days?
A.
You need to have your physical RFID card in-hand to reload tickets. Reserve your day on a new card, and pick up the card the morning you've planned to ski. If buying tickets for multiple days, reserve for one-day first and pick up your new card first. Then once you have the card, go ahead and reload more days online.

A. 
No, you need to purchase your Alpine Lift Ticket separately from lessons and rentals.
