Here I am, dreaming of flip flops, sunglasses and maxi dresses with July on the horizon, and my Island mountain throws me the biggest curve ball of the summer. While the chair lifts traditionally re-open on Father’s Day each year to kick off mountain bike season (and to take in killer expansive views of the Georgia Straight from the highest peak), Mount Washington Alpine Resort is re-opening the lifts… for snow play!

With snow still falling as recently as the end of May, it’s a no-brainer to take advantage and shred under the hot sun. On June 19th and 20th, skiers and snowboarders can ride the lifts for only $25, while dads can ride for just $10 (when accompanied with their offspring) on Father’s Day. Being that I never managed to make it up the hill once all season, I can’t say that this isn’t entirely tempting…
