Mount Washington to ban smoking on its entire property


In an effort to ensure that every guest is able to experience the fresh, clean mountain air untarnished, Mount Washington has decided to go smoke-free starting June 1st, 2018.

At the moment, the resort does not allow smoking in lift lines, on chairlifts, and within 3 metres of building entrances and intakes.

This new policy has been updated to include a ban on smoking of all kinds – like vaporizers and marijuana (medicinal and recreational) – in all parts of the resort. This encompasses all parking lots, ski runs, bike, hiking and Nordic trails and public spaces within the resort area boundary.

The sale of all smoking products at Mount Washington Resort will also be stopped by June 1st, in compliance with these new rules.

This announcement was made just days after the CRD amended its Clean Air bylaw to include vaping, smoking weed, or “burning any substances” in public spaces.
