Ski-to-surf views and some of the deepest snow in North America- welcome to Mount Washington, Vancouver Island’s destination ski resort. Tucked between the Pacific Ocean and the snowy peaks of Strathcona Provincial Park, Mount Washington wows with deep snow, great scenery and an easy-going island vibe. Mount Washington 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.

Visitor Reviews of Mount Washington
Shari from Canada writes:
Beautiful views! It was my first time to Mt Washington and we were there on a Wednesday. The line ups for all the lifts were at least half an hour plus. There was often 1 person on a 6 seat chair lift and there could have easily been 2 people even with keeping safety protocols, so that was extremely inefficient and maddening. Also, they do not accept cash at the restaurants and eateries which is incredibly inconvenient as I never carry a credit card. I can't say I would return to this mountain, at least during COVID and if they remain cashless.
