Winter activities on the mountain include:
Skiing and snowboarding serviced by 8 lifts. The Boomerang premiered winter 2005, opening up double-black diamonds on the backside of the mountain (not for the faint of heart or legs…). There’s one high-speed lift, one quad, one triple chair, one six-seater, and four magic carpets. These lifts service an array of over 80 runs from absolute beginner to straight-down black diamonds. This mountain is perfect for ripping up the powder on your board in the morning, and working your legs on the skis in the afternoon. Rentals and lessons are available on site and there’s night skiing/riding on Thursday,Friday, & Saturdays.
The O-Zone Tubing offers 3 downhill runs serviced by 1 lift. There’s usually a bonfire to warm up your hands and fresh hot chocolate in the snack hut nearby.
Raven Lodge is the spot to rent cross-country equipment, purchase your ticket for the endless miles of groomed track and take the kids tobogganing. They also have snowshoe rentals and marked trails for snowshoeing. Trust me it’s not as easy as it looks!! You basically have to walk like you’ve been riding a horse for the past week…
The last but one of the more popular activities during the winter on Mt. Washington is lounging in Ted’s lounge. They have great food, greater drinks, big screen TVs, and a pool table. They have a family license.
Summer activities on the mountain include:
Mini golf, you whack a little white ball through a variety of small holes and obstacles. Luckily this activity is located nearby Ted’s for rest breaks.
Disc golf consists of walking up the mountain throwing a Frisbee-like object into baskets along the way. Much like playing golf uphill, requires frequent breaks as well. Recommend a backpack with refreshments for this one.
Bungee trampoline. The name says it all. You can be the gymnast of your dreams. Flip to your hearts content while gazing upon Mt. Albert Edward and the Sunshine Coast.
There’s also a variety of food/wine/beer festivals on the mountain throughout the summer (check the website link for dates).
