Mount Washington Alpine Resort
With the Pacific Ocean on one side and scenic Strathcona Park on the other, Mount Washington Alpine Resort is a sought-after creative destination for writers and cinematographers. But the natural beauty and winter bounty of the area—which includes an impressive 11 average metres of annual snowfall—has been made even more accessible and skier-friendly since the privately owned resort opened in 1979. What began as two double chairlifts and a single rough road has evolved into more than 1,700 acres of skiable terrain with five lifts and four magic-carpet conveyors, all reached by the paved Strathcona Parkway. The park’s crystalline snow glitters under the stars during night skiing, acts as fodder for nordic skis and snow tubes, and covers rails, decks, and boxes at The Stomping Ground terrain park.
To further familiarize guests with the mountain slopes, trained snow-school instructors lead programs designed for beginners, as well as group and private lessons. Adults can drop off snowmen prone to separation anxiety at The Bear's Den daycare center before sitting down for burgers and craft beers at Fat Teddy's pub or quick bites at a number of grab-and-go eateries. The resort also offers accommodations ranging from private chalets to vacation condos and breathtaking chairlift rides in the summer.
