Mount Washington Alpine Resort reopening after snowfall

Mount Washington is reopening for skiing after receiving enough snow, a rarity this winter.

"We're reopening the mountain this Thursday, Feb. 13. Lifts start spinning at 9 a.m.!" the Mount Washington Alpine Resort announced Tuesday on its website (

"Please give us time to update our snow totals," the update continued. After opening late a month ago with a mid-mountain snowbase of 110 centimetres, the snowbase had shrunk to 70 cm before this week's recalculation.

"Operations staff are returning to the mountain and we will get you the information and details as soon as we can," the resort promised. "Regular snow reporting will resume Thursday morning bright and early!"

The Mount Washington Alpine Resort reminds people to respect mountain closures. "We have machinery and staff on the slopes preparing for Thursday so please stay off the slopes and obey all closures."
