Visitor Reviews of Mount Washington

No Pow to Chow? from Canada writes:

If a snowflake falls in the forest, and no one is there to ski it, does anyone truly get rad?'

As with the near extinction of the once noble and majestic marmot, the Vancouver Island ski bum has suffered a steady decline since the harsh "winter" of 2013. Pow sources were on short supply and already it was hardly enough to feed the well established "resident" skiers. The annual migration of the Australian used to work symbiotically with the ecosytem. Plenty of pow for all. Now they and others are forced to look for sustenance elsewhere; they cannot afford to wait in hopes that the bounty will someday return.

Resort staff are already difficult to retain in long term capacity. Some of them with high levels of training and expertise will be forced to "migrate" elsewhere in the pursuit of powder, and in the case of the professional - the pursuit of survival. With an industry solely based on fickle mother nature, and a general rise in global temperatures, the sub alpine nub we all know and love proves not a reliable source of seasonal income. The ski bums and professionals are forced to adapt or relocate, neither a desirable option.

If only there was an answer to this seemingly unavoidable transition into the new age. What if there were some way to transform the nub into a year round destination...? Well my friends, if you look closely you can still see the skeleton of a once well developed downhill lift accessed mountain bike park. Additionally, Mount Washington is situated at the entrance to beautiful Strathcona Provincial Park. However, with backcountry use sky rocketing year round Old Nubby has failed to capitalize on the market in the slightest. The summer industry at our little mountain was in the early stages of life when it was snubbed out by the shareholders weeks before the start of the summer season.

If you want to support the cause, go to the SaveTheNub website and donate. As you know the resort is for sale; we are starting a crowd funding and campaign to buy the hill and put it in the hands of some folk who know how to run a year round resort destination. We look forward to hearing from you.

Yours truly,

The Knights of the Knub
