Grab your 6ixPak and hit the slopes

Skiing is better together with the return of the Mt. Washington 6ixPak.

‘No friends on a powder day’, a well-known phrase associated with skiers and snowboarders describing a love of a sport so fierce, riders will leave behind anyone to enjoy a morning of fresh tracks. However, when the grey skies start to build and snow warnings are triggered for Mt. Washington, powder-hounds flock not solo, but in packs to the ski resort.

“Who are you going to high-five if you are on a solo-mission?” asks Mount Washington spokesperson Sheila Rivers. “A day of skiing is just better together with your crew. From the first run to the afternoon apres, it’s an experience to share.”

Getting a group up to the resort is simple with the return of the 6ixPak. A crowd favourite, the 6ixPak allows powder-hounds and bluebird rippers alike to save by splitting up and sharing the booklet of six discounted lift tickets.

The Mt. Washington winter season is set to open Dec. 8. Grab your 6ixPak at Early Bird rates before Dec. 3, and have your group ready for the opening weekend at the best deal of the season.
