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.

  • Jun 11, 2019: “While not in the same class as Whistler Ski Resort [where the winter Olympics were "recently held"] it is definitely as "striking/stunning"... The "Natural Beauty" is outstanding--in the winter or summer time! It has only been about 25 years since the thousands of condos, chalets etc were built. We visited several of the resorts on a warn, sunny June day. although the temp was in the 70's... there was still snow in abundance! We were so glad to have paid this area a visit!! I hope that this Review has been helpful.” 0
  • May 16, 2019: “This was our second summer visit to the Mount Washington area for a day of trekking! We discovered Paradise Meadows a number of years ago on the first visit. The Meadows area was just as beautiful as we remembered and we would recommend this place to anyone with a love of nature, wildlife and walking! ” 1
  • Mar 31, 2019: “I am a big fan of Mount Washington. I live in Vancouver, so close to Cypress and the other North Shore mountains and Whistler. Mount Washington is a great mountain in between those. Bigger than the north shore, not as big - or as busy - as Whistler. The runs are long and spacious and the snow was awesome. Great views, nice people, great day of riding! Recommend. ” 2
