THE OUTBACK WILL open to skiers and boarders on Saturday

Outback opening this Saturday at Mount Washington

Resort also opening more Nordic terrain as snow conditions are excellent

 

Mount Washington Alpine Resort will open the Outback, the mountain’s steep and deep backside, this Saturday, Dec. 15. The move will give skiers and boarders access to 100 per cent of the mountain’s alpine terrain.

In addition to alpine, the resort also plans on opening an additional 27 km of its Nordic terrain, bringing the Nordic Centre to full mid-winter operation in only the second week of December.

“We’ve been fortunate enough to open the entire mountain this early only a handful of times in our resort history,” says resort spokesperson Brent Curtain. “We are experiencing snow depths and conditions that you would normally see in February. It’s been a phenomenal start to the season.”

Forecasts are calling for moderate snow fall beginning Friday evening into Saturday morning with another system expected to bring more snowfall Sunday. This will add to the current snowbase of 200 cm, which is already the deepest snowpack in Canada.

To take advantage of the amazing early season conditions, Mount Washington is offering Winter Wonderland accommodation packages right before Christmas. Book a three or five night accommodation package starting Dec. 21 and receive 25 per cent off regular rates. To book, call 1-888-231-1499.

To gain access to more deals around the rest of the resort, check out Mount Washington’s Christmas Advent Calendar. Access daily deals on everything from Snow School to food and beverage. Check the daily calendar deal every morning online at mountwashington.ca. Deals will continue up to and including Dec. 24.
