Break out the skis and snowboards – Mount Washington Alpine Resort has set an opening date.

Following a delay due to lack of snow, mountain operations will begin Friday, Dec. 20 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. with night skiing in effect, confirmed Kayla Stockton, the resort’s marketing manager.

Open terrain will include Coaster, the Easy Acres zone as well as the Tube Park and limited Nordic operations, with more terrain opening as snow conditions allow. Early season lift ticket pricing will be in effect based on open terrain.
