On Vancouver Island, go cross-country skiing at Mount Washington Alpine Resort and peaceful Strathcona Provincial Park, which is conveniently located just outside the resort boundaries.

Mount Washington’s cross-country skiing facilities are world-class: it’s an official training site for XC Canada, and three international teams trained here prior to the 2010 Winter Games.

Cross-Country Skiing at Mount Washington and Strathcona Park

Enjoy 55km/34mi of groomed trails that run through Mount Washington resort and into spectacular Strathcona Provincial Park. Glide past old-growth cedars, frozen lakes and snowy peaks. Access upper trails (as well as ocean-to-alpine views) via the chairlift. Raven day lodge provides rentals, lessons and dining options.

Accommodation is available slopeside and in nearby Courtenay, Comox and Nanaimo. Looking for a break from skis? Join the guided Snowshoe and Fondue Dinner Tour through the forests of Strathcona.
