Overview 

The largest ski area on Vancouver Island and the third most visited ski centre in the Province. Mt Washington offers terrain to suit all abilities of skier, with some challenging blacks and tree runs, gentle yet challenging intermediate runs and some gentle, friendly novice slopes.

Mt Washington is situated on Vancouver Island, a mere 2hrs north of Victoria, the capital of British Columbia. The resort boast huge annual dumps of snow (around 30 feet) or nine metres. Being on the coast, when the snow is not falling the resort is favoured by sunny but still cold weather. The resort is only 30 minutes from Courtenay/Comox,a smaller town that has world class golf and salmon fishing.

Location

Mt. Washington is located 25 km west of the Comox Valley, 100 km north of Nanaimo on Vancouver Island.
