Mount Washington Alpine Resort

Ski-to-surf views and some of the deepest snow in the west define Vancouver Island’s Mount Washington Alpine Resort. Tucked between the Pacific Ocean and the peaks of Strathcona Provincial Park, this resort wows with a staggering 11.5 metres (38 feet) average snowfall a year.

The resort promises a family-oriented, easygoing island vibe, and the alpine village has ski-in/ski-out accommodation for more than 4,000 visitors. Mount Washington also features one of North America’s top-rated Nordic Centres.

  • Aug 15, 2018: “It’s such a great mountain to go to for all type of riders whether you’re beginner or pro. Staff is relatively helpful (it varied) but most are friendly. I enjoyed the slopes a lot and it was straightforward. Lift ticket pricing was a bit different/confusing than what I usually deal with, there were the morning, early afternoon, late afternoon and night tickets. And few of the hills were only operating during morning times. But once we got it figured it out, it was great.” 0
  • Aug 6, 2018: “We booked a suite in the Bear Lodge and it was fabulous. It was family weekend at the resort. We brought our 11 year old granddaughter for the weekend. When she saw the suite she was so excited to see her own room. She immediately approved! That’s a huge plus for us. We discovered the suite was well equipped of all amenities including a dishwasher & garbage disposal. There was nothing missed. There were games, children books, movies and video game. A child’s Mecca. For us adults, our room had an ensuite bathroom. Very comfortable bed. Peter, the attendant at the desk was very accommodating and extremely knowledgeable of the area when our granddaughter posed continuous questions. Overall this was one of the best places we have stayed. Looking forward to going back someday.” 1
  • Jul 26, 2018: “Great trail system and well taken care of. Lots of signs and they tell you how far things are. Dogs must be on leash at all times ,but most hikers have them off . Take lots of water and snacks or lunch . Spend the day or days as it it just great to be in the outdoors . Well worth the trip .” 2
