Transportation & Maps
Located on the central east side of Vancouver Island, Mount Washington Alpine Resort benefits from a network of well-maintained, multi-lane highways (Highways 1 and 19) connecting the north and south Island.
As part of the Comox Valley which includes Courtenay, Comox, and Cumberland, it boasts a bedrock infrastructure.
The Strathcona Parkway winds and climbs up to Mount Washington from Highway 19's Exit 130 (Dove Creek Road). Travelling from the north, Mount Washington is 60km/37mi (one hour) southeast of Campbell River. It is 135km/83.6mi (just under two hours) northwest of Nanaimo, and 245km/152mi northwest of Victoria (about 3.5 hours). Although the fully paved, 18km/11mi Strathcona Parkway is continuously plowed during snowfalls, occasional chain-up advisories are indicated by flashing yellow lights at the parkway entrance.
