Miss604 Poll: Magnificent Mt. Washington

Comments 5 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Contrary to popular belief, Mount Washington is not in America.

I’ve heard the rumours and I have to say, they’re all true. From the Hawk 6ix Pack (and the Hawk Dog Stand) to the Rainbow Rollers, I got my butt kicked by Mt. Washington today and I pretty much loved every minute of it. Sunny, cool, crisp, fresh powder and a ridiculously huge base makes “BC’s best kept secret” of a resort worthy of its title. Super long runs, hardly any crowds, polite staff and lifts that zip you up to your starting point faster than you can say “Vancouver Island Marmot!”

Ms Keira-Anne was nervous at first about how her mountain would present itself to her North Shore boarding’ friend. Needless to say, I had an amazing time and we still managed to take a billion and one photos and even record a video. (No, we didn’t park ourselves in the middle of a run for 20 minutes to shoot the video – it was right after getting off the Eagle Express chair lift).

It is a quick little rant, recorded half way through the day when we could simply no longer keep our mouths shut about the throngs of two-plankers that seemed to be aggressively taking over the hills. Unfortunately we’re too sun-kissed and in need of stretching tired muscles right now so we’ll try and post the video in the morning so for now, it’s simply a poll.

    […] fact that you toss in boats just adds an extra layer of uniqueness to the lower mainland. Just ask Rebecca who got back from the island after spending the weekend in Keira’s […]

    Rebecca, I’ve been wanting to get into boarding (the gf is a veteran skier).. would you suggest just kind of taking a few lessons on the local mountains etc (renting gear etc)? I assume I will be on my ass (or face) for my first few outings eh?

    I really should of taken up boarding when I had my own board back in grade 6 (lol that was like 17yrs ago or so)

    Yeah I’d definitely suggest a) local hills to start b) lessons c) renting. If you end up not liking it, it’s an inexpensive way to come to that conclusion. If you do like it, then move up from there.
