Mt washington is the worst situated mountain in the World. The Snow can either be champaigne powder ( only 2 days out of the year ) And the majority of the time the snow is wet, hard, and heavy. Definitley not fun skiing/snowboarding conditions. This Mountain also lies and embellishes the weather reports, as well as frequent shut downs of the website, snowphone, and weather reports leave guests and customers wondering what to do. The terrain is almost all flat, with very little downhill terrain unless you feel like destroying your equipment on the Outback riding over trees, rocks, bike jumps/summer bike courses. This is a mountain were you will spend almost the same at whistler or big white, but your guaranteed to see better conditions, better management, better terrain park, pretty much better everything. Mt washington also has a number of terrain park features, but it's too bad the management for setting up the terrain park is really lacking. With crooked rails, crooked jumps, crooked everything. Park crew's supposed to be grooming landings and takeoff's, but the most i see them doing is drinking beer and smoking marijuana to the side of the run. The park is always set up with stuff to hit, but whats the point if the lip is two feet below the rail, or two feet over the rails. And it's not fun to slide a rail then drop off four feet to almost flat at the end. Very poor and unprofessional mountain, and the chairlifts are super scary and old and are always ran at full capacity making the chairlifts super unsafe. This mountain definitely will make you empty out your wallet and max out your credit card, and at 12:30 when your kid's have had enough of the concrete snow, and sludgy conditions and the endless lift lines you begin to think maybe whistler or big white would have been better, FOR THE SAME COST Mt washington sucks period. Two days out of the whole year are considered the '' Money '' Days, and usually the mountain is getting rained on, turning the rain into ice overnight with the cold conditions, then a huge skating rink for you to wreck yourself on. Sure sounds like my idea of fun! The Olympics will show off what out Local Island Resort is really like, and they should go bankrupt within months of people seeing the facilities, terrain, lack of service, and the most BUCK for your BANG. Avoid at all costs.
