The chairlifts will be in full operation at Mount Washington Alpine Resort during the Thanksgiving long weekend.

Mount Washington Alpine Resort busy on Thanksgiving long weekend

Autumn’s spectacular colours create a vibrant backdrop for the special events and activities happening up at Mount Washington Alpine Resort this Thanksgiving long weekend – including one last chance to enjoy the breathtaking alpine-to-ocean views on the Mile High Scenic Chairlift Ride.

“The fall colours up here are amazing right now, making the scenery a must-see for visiting friends and family,” explains Don Sharpe, Director of Business Operations. “There is no better way to show off the amazing views of the Comox Valley and beyond.”

In addition to the chairlift, the on-mountain retail shop Altitude Sport & Gift will be holding their annual Turkey Sale, with blow-out deals on outerwear and hardgoods from previous seasons.

“This is the weekend to get ready for the upcoming winter season. We will be clearing out our old inventory with up to 75 per cent off,” says the mountain’s Retail Manager, Chris Dennis. “We have everything from clothes and outerwear to skis and snowboards, at huge blow-out deals. We will even be providing a 20 per cent discount on new stock to all 2015-16 season pass holders – this weekend only.”

Mount Washington is extending their Early Bird Season Pass Sale for the Thanksgiving weekend. “We are extending our Early Bird Sale this year to include Oct. 9-10-11,” explains Season Pass Coordinator, Maureen Thompson.

“We had such an overwhelming number of guests not able to get through before the deadline, so we decided to extend the sale. This will be the last opportunity to save up to $400 off your 2015-16 season pass before our regular season rates go into effect on Oct. 12.”

To add to the fun, Ted’s Bar & Grill will be screening ski and snowboard movies throughout the weekend and will also be hosting a full Thanksgiving brunch, available on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

 

“This is our first event for the 2015-16 winter season,” Sharpe continues. “It’s a great opportunity for us to connect with our guests before the snow flies, and share excitement for the upcoming ski season.”
