Mount Washington Alpine Resort wants you to save money this weekend and support the Comox Valley food bank at the same time.

The fabled Turkey Sale, where brand name ski and snowboard gear gets discounted to irresistible prices, combines with the last Mile High Scenic Chairlift Rides before the winter snow arrives.

“With the unbelievable weather we’ve seen up here as of late, we decided to run the Eagle Chair for sightseeing this Saturday,” explains spokesperson Brent Curtain. “Just bring a cash donation or non-perishable food item for the local food bank in exchange for a lift ticket to get up and see the amazing fall colours in the alpine.”

The three-day Turkey Sale takes place at Altitude Sport and Gift and Mtn Tek beginning Oct. 5 at noon and lasting until Oct. 7 at 5 p.m.

The Mile High Chairlift Rides run this Saturday from noon to 4 p.m. 
The Mount Washington community is also celebrating this weekend. Tourism Mount Washington is hosting a Homeowners barbecue on Saturday evening at Fat Teddy’s Grill and a pancake breakfast at the Vancouver Island Mountain Centre on Sunday morning. 
“We hope to see all members of the alpine community this weekend,” explains Sarah Nicholson, manager for Tourism Mount Washington. “It’s the perfect time to prepare for the upcoming winter season and it’s a great way to meet your neighbours.”
The Vancouver Island Mountain Centre, which opened last December, will also be open to the public for tours from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. This is the perfect opportunity to check out the facility and learn about the various programs it has to offer.
