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.

  • Jan 19, 2019: “Poorly managed with lack of staff. Main lifts are often opened late ... very late and sometimes they dont open the main lifts at all, and no notifications on line. Even with 2 of there main lifts being closed, due to weather or lack of skiers, they still charge full pull to skiers. Parking lots and roads up to the resort are often a gong show. Too bad it's gone down hill since the new owners have taken over. Lack of management, staff, and inexperienced staff, and over priced tickets gives this mountain 2 stars . They have a captured audience by being the only ski hill on the island , and I'm guessing they know it.” 0
  • Jan 17, 2019: “Cute hill, painful on weekends though. When the whiskey chair isn’t running (and they shut it down and don’t update the app) the hawk chair is extremely busy with ski school cutting in line and lots of beginner skiers and snowboarders.” 1
  • Jan 16, 2019: “dont EVER buy tickets online, they will rip you off!!!! we had a emergency and those losers didn't even tried to accommodate us nor change helping to change dates as we didn't even want to be refund!! This resort absolutely sucks, dont spent time or money coming here....” 2
