MT. WASHINGTON, BC — After receiving 181 centimetres of new snow in the past 7 days (as of 8am March 16), Mount Washington will extend their winter season by a full week in April. Skiers and snowboarders can now carve the slopes until April 22, 2012.
“Our snowbase is now over 300 centimetres so the decision to extend our winter season was easy,” said Don Sharpe, Director of Business Operations and Marketing. “Skiers and boarders will now be able to enjoy another 7 days of great Spring riding in April.”
With the change of date, fans of Mount Washington events are encouraged to check out the online event calendar to see what's new for April. “We moved the Crush Slush Cup date to coincide with our last day of the season, plus we're hosting some new rail comps and bringing over the Camp of Champions airbag during Easter Weekend,” explained Event Coordinator Marina Stevenson.
To celebrate the season extension, Mount Washington wants you to save money while on the snow. From accommodation to gear, there are huge savings to be had.
