Mt. Washington offers alpine adventures on Canada Day

Mount Washington invites the public to break away from the ordinary this Canada Day by experiencing ‘flowy fun’ in the Bike Park, and alpine-to-ocean views from the chairlift.

On Monday, July 1, lift tickets for the Bike Park and Scenic Chairlift Rides are free for children 12 and under when accompanied by a paying adult.

The Bike Park opens this Saturday for the start of the summer season. It offers green trails for families and beginners, and double black diamonds for expert rippers — not to mention berms, drops and jumps in between.

Teaming up with Gravity MTB, the resort is offering a life-accessed ‘Ladies Only’ clinic July 13-14 for those new to mountain biking, as well as experienced riders looking to improve their skills while experiencing the thrill of riding in a bike park with professional instruction.

Coming this summer is the Eagle’s Flight ZipTour. Fly down the 2.3km tour at speeds approaching 100 kmh. Over chasms, between treetops, and above the ocean views, the tour offers a new and thrilling way to experience Mount Washington.
