Women’s Week at Mount Washington

Resort has many activities planned on their spring schedule

Mount Washington’s annual Women’s Week begins today (Monday, Feb. 29) and runs until Friday, March 4. This program is designed for female skiers and riders to help improve their skills on the mountain in a comfortable and supportive ladies-only group setting.

“Our Women’s Day program expanded into a week-long event a few years ago,” noted Sheila Rivers, spokeswomen for the resort. “The popularity of the program with Vancouver Island women has grown ever since. It’s an excellent opportunity to spend a day with a group of ladies, learn some tips and tricks from your female Snow School instructor and enjoy lunch and après together at the lodge. It’s an unbeatable social and on-snow experience at an amazing price.”

“We go every year,” remarked a snowboarder named Barb, motioning to her friend. “Basically it’s a fun day up on the mountain with your girlfriends. I constantly have my phone out hoping to capture the moment when my friend falls. It’s usually me though – maybe I should put my phone away,” she laughed.

“Seriously though, we love the instructors. They have all been positive and fun ladies who know how to make the lesson very enjoyable and the glass of wine at the end really tops off the day. You will definitely see us back this year, and with a few lessons under our belt, hopefully falling a little less!”

In addition to Women’s Week, the resort has a full schedule of spring events and holiday Snow School camps with live music in Ted’s Bar & Grill every weekend. This spring’s event lineup includes a big day on March 20 featuring the Rockstar Slopestyle competition, and the resort’s newest event which is a Fat Tire Biking race. Bikes with five-inch wide tires provide surprisingly good traction and great on-snow racing action.

The VIB Bac’n Jam rail comp takes place on April 2, and the Thrifty Foods Dummy Downhill and Crush Slush Cup return April 9-10.
