We weren't sure we could believe it

DOC POW, SnowSeekers Inc.

You'll note a blog below by Dan, our digital guru here at SnowSeekers, announcing our new snow reports on SnowSeekers.ca.

He came to me the other day to tell me that he wasn't sure that he could trust what was coming out of Mount Washington's website, reporting of a 600 cm base - almost twice that of Whistler Blackcomb's.  "They must be inflating that number, I can't trust it," he said.  Well the numbers don't lie; they are true.  Mount Washington, just outside of Comox, BC, is experiencing one of their snowiest seasons in history – actually their second on record – only next to the infamous season of 1998-99.

"We’re extending the season by two weekends after April 11th and we’re delivering an extensive and entertaining event calendar to everybody next month,” explains Don Sharpe, Director of Business Operations.

One of the really interesting things about Mount Washington, next to these epic conditions, is its location: an island. Vancouver Island, to be precise.  So, in April you can head out for an adventure like few people on the planet can ever get in on.  A surf and snow safari, get in a few days on the skis or snowboard and then head off to Ucluelet for some surfing (between the two is only a two and a half hour wicked drive).

Enter into to win our trip for two to Whistler and you may just have the best April ever.....
