Mount Washington Alpine Resort - Overview

The Mountains

Terrain Description

The terrain at Mount Washington is fun for all kinds of reason.  Being on an island skiing is unique to begin with, while if you are a fan of tree skiing, you will find a ton of it at Mount Washington and as you ski through it ask yourself "when is the last time I skied through a temperate rain forest."  Note how much character the trees have.   The backside of Mount Washington provides some challenging steeps into deep snow.

Getting There

Located just outside of Comox BC, getting to Mount Washington is part of the adventure.  Island bound means you either take BC Ferries to get here, who offer daily service from Horseshoe Bay (in West Vancouver) to Nanaimo and then its about an hour and a half drive from there up to the resort.


BC Ferries serviced, drive up from Nanaimo.  


Daily service with Westjet, Air Canada and Pacific Coastal Airlines all service the Comox Valley Airport which is also home to the Snowbirds (Canada's arial acrobatics team).


There is a Mount Washington shuttle you can catch from Comox up to the resort.  Best to check in with the resort as the schedule of the shuttle changes through the season.
