Winter Stokefest

What are you stoked for in the 22/23 season?
The stoke sure is strong in this community.

It was awesome to see everyone out in force for the pre-season Stokefest events in downtown Courtenay. We asked and you answered what you're most stoked for at Mount Washington this upcoming season and well... watch and see the local stoke for yourself! Huge thanks to ROAM Media, all the event partners and the local ski community for making the pre-season magic happen. 

The first snow of the winter has officially landed. You are getting excited, we are getting excited, and we can't wait to kick off the season together in 6 WEEKS. What are you most stoked for? #myMW

Thanks for a Great Summer!

/ Bike Park 2022 Recap

Last Day of the Season is Sunday, September 25th
Thanks for another great summer season in the Mount Washington Bike Park! The late snow got us off to a slower than anticipated start on the trails, but our Trail Crew worked hard to get the full park open in no time offering stellar July and August riding conditions and tons of fun bike community events to participate in. We're already gearing up momentum for the next bike season, but until then, join us this weekend for our final summer 2022 operations. 

The Bike Park is open Saturday & Sunday from 10 am - 4:30 pm
Monster Mile off the Eagle Chair requires full-face helmets. 

On Sunday, September 25th, stop by our booth on the patio from 11am - 4pm for a free Bike Park Pass Holder lunch on us! Simply have your pass ready and select your choice of burger, hot dog or veggie burger with a beverage. Thanks again for all the fun times out on the trails this summer, we hope to see you around this winter season! This is the final weekend of Bike Park operations.
