Christmas at Mount Washington

Rain was falling and visibility was limited, but there was plenty of snow Friday at Mount Washington, which was alive with skiers, snowboarders and tubers on Christmas Day.

A total of 68 runs were open. The snow base at Whiskey Jack was 160cm while the Hawk snow base was 70 cm.

Twelve Nordic trails were also open.

Staff at Mt. Washington appreciate continued efforts from visitors so they can continue to stay open.

Face Masks: Mandatory everywhere at the resort from your vehicle to the chairlifts, to the lodges. Your mask should have several layers of fabric and be worn all the way over your nose.

Physical Distancing: Use more than a ski-length to distance yourself from others. Have patience when merging into chairlift lines, wait your turn and pay close attention to your surroundings.

Alpine Access: Reserve tickets online before you arrive; tickets may sell out. No reservations for Pass Holders or 6ixPaks.

Nordic Access: XC and Snowshoe Trail Passes are purchased in-person at the new outdoor kiosk.

Rentals and Lessons: Reserve online before you arrive for both alpine and Nordic products.

Tube Park: Reserve your tubing time online, and allow yourself plenty of time to arrive and collect passes at the Guest Services Kiosk.

Dining: Come in to eat at off-peak times to avoid lineups at dining locations. During Night Skiing, you can order take-out from a mobile app to pick-up from the cafeteria.
