A spectacular view of the Comox Valley and beyond awaits visitors to Mount Washington Alpine Resort this summer.

Mount Washington opens for the summer this Saturday, June 27

Plenty to do and see for locals and visitors this year at popular Island resort

 

Mount Washington takes sightseeing to new heights this weekend as the resort kicks off another summer season of festivals, events and treating visitors to one of North America’s most magnificent views.

“The view from the top of the mountain is second to none,” says Don Sharpe, Director of Business Operations and Marketing. “It’s not only visually spectacular; it’s also comfortable, safe and affordable. It’s the kind of view that’s easy to show off to your visiting family and friends.”

 

The resort opens daily for the summer starting this Saturday, June 27, with the Mile High Scenic Chairlift Ride, family activities such as disc golf, mini golf and the ever-popular Bungee Trampoline (take advantage of the Alpine Action Pack and try it all on the same day for a discounted price) and on-mountain dining and shopping experiences at Ted’s Bar & Grill, Altitude Sport & Gift and the General Store.

 

The chairlift will operate from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day, and until 7 p.m. every Saturday as part of a special Sunset Ride & Dine package where you can enjoy a round-trip sunset ride to the top followed by a dinner special in Ted’s Bar & Grill. Families are welcome.

Some upcoming events include their Canada Day celebration on Wednesday, July 1; wear red and white and ride the Mile High Scenic Chairlift Ride for half price. Cake will also be served in the courtyard at 2 p.m.

 

Also coming up is Tapped, Mount Washington’s popular annual beer festival, which features a huge lineup of 15 breweries, a pig roast barbecue and a beer seminar hosted by Jeff Lucas from Cascadia Liquor Stores. A return bus shuttle is available from Courtenay. Get your entry ticket, pig roast and shuttle online and save 10 per cent. Tickets are also available at Cascadia Liquor Store in the Thrifty Foods plaza in Courtenay.
