Outback Opens This Weekend

Outback Opens This Weekend

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

In addition to alpine, the resort also plans on opening an additional 27kms 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 200cms, 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 December 21st and receive 25% off regular rates. To book, call 1-888-231-1499.
