Good Local Ski Hill

28/06/2019
Rather grand views
Nice top to bottom groomer
Some of The Outback is out of bounds
Views across the water
The main base area is compact
It was our first time to Vancouver Island and we enjoyed spending a couple of days in Victoria before heading up to Mt Washington. It was nice to check it out, but Mount Washington won’t be added to the rebucket list. Despite the Mt Washington marketing team heading to international ski shows over the years, this really isn’t an international ski destination but rather a nice ski hill for Van Islanders to visit.

Multiple locals on chair lift rides proclaimed how lovely the snow was. Each time we tried not to laugh because we failed to see how nice it was. Admittedly we’re powder snobs, and clearly it all depends on your perspective, but it gave us a little insight into how the snow quality must commonly be at Mt Washington. Even though it had only been a couple of days since snowfall, the groomers were quite scraped off and The Outback had so many icy zones that it was terrifying in parts. The terrain out there was very impressive, but it wasn’t enjoyable considering the snow.

Some pros of the resort include its family friendliness, the overall friendly vibe, and the wallet friendly pricing. See our Mt Washington overview page for more on our thoughts on the pros and cons and see our Canada ski resort ratings to see how we compare it to other BC ski resorts.
