Mount Washington Alpine Resort boasts a quintessential British Columbia view of the Pacific Ocean, Vancouver Island, and the Coast Mountain Range.
Add to this an incredibly high annual snowfall (11m/36ft), excellent powder conditions (top 10 Best Powder by Ski Canada Magazine), and surprisingly mild winter temperatures (-2°C/28°F), and a winter activity mecca is inevitable. Choose from downhill skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing. However, summer also thrives with alpine hiking, mile-high chairlift rides and mountain biking.
Mount Washington and 2010 Winter Olympians
With such excellent conditions, it is easy to understand why Mount Washington attracted international athletes from Sweden, USA, France, Germany, Russia, and China to train for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.
