Boasting some of the best ski terrain around, Vancouver Island is the place for families seeking a ski vacation. Tucked into the Vancouver Island Ranges, Mount Washington Resort attracts families for its easy-to-use trails, a kids snow playground, and tubing activities. Find adventure in the year-round resort’s 1,700 acres of terrain and its beautifully groomed trails. You'll find yourself surrounded by magnificent local native forests.
During the winter ski season, glide down Mount Washington's 505 metres of vertical alpine terrain, and over 20km of snowshoeing trails. For Nordic skiers, there's also 55km of cross-country terrain to explore. Ski by night on well-lit slopes, as you admire starry skies on your way down.
With private and group sessions, the kids' program at Mount Washington serves junior skiers of all abilities. There's a kids ski camp for 3 days of exciting lessons, games, and lunches. The resort also has a daycare and babysitting referral program that lets you get away for some quality time on your own. When you need to refuel, enjoy food and drink made from fresh ingredients, from the signature fries at Marmot Express to the local craft beer at Ted’s Bar + Grill.
