Skiing in the Comox ValleyWinter ski vacations in Canada do not have to include freezing temperatures off the ski slopes: Vancouver Island and the adjacent Gulf Islands have the mildest winter climate in Canada. The higher elevations, however, are blessed with an abundance of snow. While golfers are teeing off on the year-round courses at lower elevations, others are strapping on their skis and snowboards and heading for the excellent skiing facilities at Mount Washington Alpine Resort.
Every year, from December to April, the Comox Valley's ski slopes come alive with activity as skiers and snowboarders enjoy the Comox Valley's excellent ski facilities and record snowfalls.Mt. Washington Alpine Resort in the Comox Valley has the most extensive skiing facilities on Vancouver Island, boasting the deepest all-natural snow base in Canada. Mount Washington's well developed ski facilities feature 50 alpine runs serviced by eight lifts, including a high-speed quad.
The popular snow-tube park, The Ozone, is also lift-serviced and offers both day and nighttime tubing.
Snowboarders have two terrain parks to choose from, including an all-natural half pipe groomed with a pipe grinder.
For cross-country skiing, there are 40 km of scenic trails that lead along alpine lakes and through forests.
Mount Washington Alpine Resort is accessible via the Strathcona Parkway off Hwy.19.
