Ski-to-surf views and some of the deepest snow on the West Coast -- welcome to Mount Washington, Vancouver Island’s destination ski resort. Tucked between the Pacific Ocean and the snow peaks of Strathcona Provincial Park, Mount Washington wows with deep snow, great scenery and an easy-going island vibe.
Mount Washington Alpine Resort on Vancouver Island boasts a staggering average of 11.5 m (38 ft) of snowfall a year. That’s so much snow that Ski Canada Magazine gave it the “Biggest Snow” award in 2012.
And the scenery? The mile high peak’s panoramic ocean and mountain vistas earned it another award from Ski Canada Magazine for “Best View” in 2011.
