As of Dec. 20, Mount Washington Alpine Resort still did not have enough snow to open the slopes to anxiously waiting snow sports enthusiasts.

Snow fell overnight Thursday and Friday morning on the mountain, and down in the Comox Valley but, according to the resort’s Facebook page, it was not enough.

“10 cms of new snow but not even close to the amounts we need to open up,” the resort posted Friday morning.

According to the resort’s website, the recent snow was dry and light, making it “not great” for an opening base.

The mid-mountain base was sitting at 30 centimetres Friday morning. The mountain’s anticipated opening day was Dec. 6, but resort staff were still unable to say Friday when the mountain will be able to open.

Resort staff will continue to evaluate snow conditions after each snowfall. It is ready to open as soon as there is enough snow, according to the resort’s website.
