Second-deepest snowpack in North America on Mount Washington
Mount Washington is on a roll when it comes to early-season dumps.
After opening earlier than expected for the fourth season in a row, the resort welcomed a metre and a half of new snowfall over the past week. The mountain now boasts the second-deepest snowpack in North America.
"I know I'm beginning to sound like a broken record, but this is another unbelievable start to the season," laughs resort spokesperson Brent Curtain. "The snow keeps piling up and the temps are remaining low so the conditions really couldn't be any better than they are right now."
Mount Washington has a base of more than 200 centimetres and the forecast calls for more snow mixed with sunshine and cooler temperatures throughout the weekend.
Mount Washington has over 1,200 acres of terrain open on the frontside of the mountain. Seven of nine lifts are operating, carrying happy skiers and boarders to 69 of the mountain's 81 marked trails.
In addition to alpine terrain, the mountain has over 28 kms of pristine trails open for Nordic skiers and the popular Ozone Tubing Park is also open, providing snow sliding fun for the whole family.If you're an iPhone user looking to stay on top of the latest conditions and events at the mountain, visit the iTunes store and download the latest Mount Washington app for free.
