Visitor reviews for Mount Washington Ski Resort

Yep, if I were the rest of you all I would stay home!
20cm of fresh powder is down right bad for the soul!
When it snows here it's not like it is 4cm and stops when the groomers get finished. It goes all night and all day! You can't run the groomers 24 hours a day. The snow is wet most times and turns to mashed potatoes by noon. So get a half day pass and get out while the getting is good. They could do a midday groom for the night skiing though. Lineups, pfffff.. Go to Whistler and you will see lineups. Great place and a great atmosphere!
So stay home if ya don't like powder!

Usually I have only positive comments, but sorry not this time.
Whistler..open, Cypress..open, Grouse..open, Seymour..open, Mt.Washington..closed. I guess when you're the only game on the Island who cares. Don't say conditions were not right. Get with it. I would think the new ownership group would be doing a better job than this. See you at Whistler.

Looking forward to the season. Should be a good one with La Nina ruling the Pacific. Here are my gripes. (1) Couldn't the new owners invest to have a functional registration system for people wanting to put their kids in ski school. (2) It's not expensive to buy a web cam that actually works. The camera at the peak is pathetic.

The more things change.... from Canada
The more things change the more they stay the same. We are all excited that it has been snowing heavily for a couple of weeks now. The north shore mountains are open and Mt. Washington hasn't even begun to train their seasonal staff. So much for dreams of change with the new ownership group. What was an opportunity to show improved management with an early opening, was wasted. Their Facebook page says: with lots of snow comes lots of work and please stay away. That's a great message to send to people that want to spend money. I guess we can look forward to another season of Noon-erang or No-nerang because it is too much work to open terrain or too expensive to staff the lifts midweek.
One would think the new owners would be trying to get open for business as soon as possible but apparently not. Maybe I expected too much.

As has been said before, there appears to be two kinds of reviews on this site: consumers wishing to improve their Mt. Washington ski experience by offering criticism, or fanboys (Mt Washington employees/vested interests?). I would love to see posters disclose their relationship to Mt. Washington, being that this is a review site; it would help consumers separate review from spin. I'll start it off, my only relationship to the business is that I give them money so as to ski at the resort. I don't understand why posters have to resort to calling people names for criticising a service they pay for? To echo someone previous - reminds me of US politics.

Gorilla rats. Whine in public. Pissy vacationers. Suck it Up! You people who are slamming those with opinions about the grooming sound a lot like The Donald (Trump). Canadians can have their opinions. If they believe the grooming could/should be improved so that they and their families can enjoy their day, perhaps it can be.
Don't bite the hand that feeds you; these are visitors and locals who pay good bucks for a day on the mountain.

There have been lots of great days this winter, yet, oddly, only a few reviews about them to balance out the endless stream of crapulent whining. It seems people are very vocal in their complaints but very quiet in their praise.
Every single ski area in the world has crappy days. The more snow they get, and the warmer their climate, the more crappy snow days there will be. Mt Wash sits on an island in a warm part of a warm ocean. It gets a lot of snow. It will therefore have many crappy snow days. A monkey could follow that logic.
Imagine if that monkey had access to Snow Forecast. It could use the website to plan trips to Mount Washington to avoid crappy snow days.
If Silver Star, Big White etc existed in the same climatic zone, they would have as many crappy days as Washy does and everyone over there would be whining.
The situation for consumers is similar to that faced by viewers when something they don't like comes on television: They can switch it off and/ or change channels, or they can watch it and whine. Judging from the reviews here, I think most reviewers would be in the 'watch it and whine' category.
If you don't like it here, buy a pair of Volkls and move to the Okanagan, or understand something of snow conditions and stop whining and get on with it.
And don't worry, even if you do pick up sticks and move to the Okanagan, Snow forecast covers the hills over there too, so you can still whine in public every time they have a crappy day. God only knows the only thing worse than a crappy snow day would be having nowhere to whine about it.
