Mount Washington Alpine Resort on Vancouver Island has all the essential elements for an ultimate downhill skiing or snowboarding experience.
First, there's no need for a snow machine, as an average of 11.5m/38ft falls annually, creating the deepest snow pack in BC. Second, winter temperatures remain relatively mild, averaging around -2°C/28°F and above. Finally, Mount Washington offers a panoramic view of some British Columbia must-sees: Vancouver Island, the Pacific Ocean and the Coast Mountains.
Of course, these features are also a draw for visitors interested in cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.
Glades and Night-Skiing
At Mount Washington, treed terrain offer thrills for everyone from beginners to advanced skiers and snowboarders. Beginners make tracks in Goodtime Glades, while daredevils love the gladed south side of the mountain.
