Mount Washington Alpine Resort’s summer season gets underway this weekend.

Resort spokesperson Sheila Rivers says the chairlift rides begin running this weekend and next. She says it’s a way to kick-start the summer season at Mount Washington.

She says the chairlift rides offer incredible views and are a great way to show off the beauty of the Comox Valley and surrounding areas.

Rivers says they’ve had a lot of interest in summer activities following the announcement that the bike park will be returning this summer.

She says they are hoping to have the trails open in mid-July.
