Snow sure

Take your skiing or snowboarding to the next level with a trip to Mount Washington on Canada’s west coast. Mount Washington Alpine Resort boasts one of the most spectacular coastal alpine settings in North America; you’ve got to ski it to believe it! Whether you are an aspiring snowsport professional or just looking for a ski holiday like no other, you will find it here on Vancouver Island.

Imagine a place where you can make sweeping turns in fresh powder, while a maze of islands dot the sea far below. Mount Washington is ideally situated in the path of regular storms rolling in off the Pacific Ocean and is frequently home to the deepest snow-pack in North America. Combine that with an authentic island destination without the glitz of bigger resorts and you can be sure the focus is on your ultimate ski or snowboard experience.
