After receiving 50 centimetres of new snow over the last seven days, Mount Washington will extend its winter season by a full week in April.
Skiers and snowboarders can now carve the slopes until April 22.
“Our snowbase is now over 300 centimetres so the decision to extend our winter season was easy,” says Don Sharpe, director of business operations and marketing.
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,” explains event co-ordinator 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.
