Skiing & Snowboarding

The mountains on Vancouver Island are blasted with Pacific Ocean air, which creates an incredibly deep, all-natural snow base – perfect for skiing and snowboarding.
The average snowfall here is in the range of 11.5m/38ft, so it's not surprising that in 2012, Ski Canada Magazine named Vancouver Island's ski resort, Mount Washington Alpine Resort, as having the Biggest Snow.
Mount Cain is the island's smaller resort, and it also suits families and powder fans.
Vancouver Island offers a diverse range of ski terrain and challenges, attracting everyone from international ski and snowboard training teams (several trained here in advance of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games) to groups looking for fun, relaxing runs.

Mount Washington Alpine Resort, British Columbia
Mount Washington is home to one of the most spectacular coastal alpine settings in North America, with the Pacific Ocean as a backdrop on one side and scenic Strathcona Park bordering the other.
In winter, Mount Washington receives a legendary 10.5 metres of annual snowfall. The resort is acknowledged as the home of Canada's deepest pile, however, it's not all about the snow! In summer, the mountain and surrounding resort community transforms itself into a major destination for mountain bikers, hikers and summer alpine enthusiasts.
