Seemingly out of nowhere, Mount Washington Alpine Resort located on Vancouver Island, Canada is reopening for skiing and riding this Father’s Day weekend.
Yeah. That’s right. A ski resort in North America is reopening for Father’s Day weekend. What a time to be alive.
The resort will spin its Whiskey Jack chairlift from 10AM-3PM on Saturday, June 18th and Sunday, June 19th, weather permitting. Dads ski for free, and lift tickets for the general public are only $29.
I love everything about this story. It’s so awesome to see a ski resort basically say “screw it” and reopen for skiing and riding in the middle of June. I mean, how many other resorts would have the guts to do something like that?
