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.
