Mount Washington Alpine Resort has received a "Best Snowshoeing Award" from Ski Canada magazine.

The mountain is blessed with an ideal combination of deep powder, varied terrain, moderate winter temperatures, and amazing natural surroundings. Guided tours, lessons, and equipment rentals are all available at the resort.

Raven Lodge

Snowshoeing activities at Mount Washington are centred at Raven Lodge. From here, two tours are available: an interpretive two-hour tour covers basic snowshoe techniques, safety, and snow awareness. The other, offered on weekends, leads snowshoers through stands of old-growth forest in the heart of the Strathcona Provincial Park, and returns to the lodge afterwards for fondue.

Strathcona Provincial Park, established in 1911, is the oldest and largest park in the Vancouver Island region. It has a stunning wilderness setting comprising snow-capped peaks and untouched forests, lakes, and rivers.
