Vancouver Islands only remaining lift serviced mountain is yet another one of the coastal mountains in B.C. that gets pounded hard with Pacific storms all winter long. Located about half way up Vancouver Island, Mount Washington rises 1588 meters above sea level and is just 80 km east of wide open ocean, making it the closest ski resort to the Pacific Ocean.

The terrain here is similar throughout the whole ski area and with the exception of the very peak of the mountain all falls below the tree line. You can find some nice wide open steeps on the top and the backside of the mountain, but things mellow out in a hurry once you get about half way down on the frontside of the resort.

The snow conditions here are usually similar to those of the Vancouver mountains or Baker, with dry blower powder only making an appearance in the coldest of conditions, and heavier coastal powder being the normal. Like many of the other out of the way mountains in B.C. Mount Washington is fairly low key, you rarely wait in lift lines, lift tickets are decently priced and not much happens at the resort after it closes for the day.

This location at the edge of the Rockies provides Fortress with quite a bit ... [ Read More ]
Drive up the Sea to Sky highway from Vancouver for about an hour and a half and you will find yourself in Whistler, arguably one of the most complete resorts in the world. This place has more of everything, more lifts, more trails and more terrain than any other resort in North America. [ Read More ]
This the only family operated mountain on the North Shore, is fittingly tucked away behind the hustle and bustle of the city of Vancouver. Head up the windy mountain road to avoid the crowds and everything that comes along with them. All you will find up here is three double chairs and a rope tow [now 1 quad, 2 doubles, and a magic carpet], but you will likely be shredding with few oth... [ Read More ]
