Mount Washington Alpine Resort Skiing Snowboarding Hiking Comox Valley Vancouver Island


Feel the stretch in your legs as you carve sweeping turns through vast depths of all-natural snow.  Crane your neck to take in the rugged peaks of Strathcona Provincial Park and the Beaufort Range rising around you. Below, the Strait of Georgia spreads out at your feet, dotted with islands against a towering Coast Range background. At Mount Washington, you know right away you are somewhere special – ski it to believe it!

Out here, we measure snow in metres, not centimetres … and by the size of your smile after a day in fresh Mount Washington powder. Watch a lifelong passion take hold as your kids make their first turns on Easy Acres, or laugh with the whole family as you careen down the tracks of the Tube Park. Earn your powder cred on the steep tree skiing of the Outback, or glide through sparkling glades on 55km of Nordic trails. As the sun sinks behind Mount Albert Edward, tuck yourself in to one of our well-appointed slopeside condos or a chalet in the cozy Alpine Village – there is a full variety of accommodation on Mount Washington to choose from. Canada’s Island Mountain is your island playground, winter or summer.

Spring snow melt brings summertime alpine fun, with scenic chairlift rides, hiking, mini golf, disc golf, bungee trampoline and wildlife viewing all waiting for you to experience and enjoy. We are the gateway to BC’s oldest provincial park, Strathcona, with access to both family friendly nature trails and backcountry peaks. Hike scenic alpine trails just steps from your cabin, where curious whiskey jacks pop down to say hello – you might even spot a Vancouver Island marmot on the rocky mountain slopes.
