Mount Washington wide open on Family Day

B.C.'s newest statutory holiday, Family Day, takes place on Monday.

Family Day is the perfect time to reconnect with the ones you love.


B.C.’s newest statutory holiday, Family Day, takes place on Monday.

To help celebrate, Mount Washington Alpine Resort is offering 50 per cent off all alpine and nordic day tickets to B.C. residents.

And with a spotlight on families this winter, the newest stat holiday is just one of the many new offerings Mount Washington has in place to bring families together on the snow.

“Families were a major focus for us this winter,” says Snow School director Mike Manara. “We’ve created new programs that allow families to enjoy skiing and snowboarding together as a unit, utilizing everything from lessons to rentals.

“
For first-timers, Family Discover Skiing and Snowboarding lessons are designed to introduce families to snow at an affordable price. A two-hour Discover lesson taken during night skiing hours includes the lesson, Easy Acres lift ticket and rentals for all family members (minimum of six).

“From one-day programs like Discover Skiing and Boarding, to multi-day programs like our Learn to Turn lessons, families have options to get out at reasonable rates. Our new Easy Acres terrain and Magic Carpets are the ideal place to discover the world of skiing and boarding,” adds Manara.

Once the snow bug has bitten, further discounts exist for regular skiing and snowboarding families. Mount Washington also offers a unique Parent Season Pass for young families with kids four and younger. The Parent Pass is transferable between parents so one can ride the mountain while the other cares for the young ones, and vice versa.
