British Columbia provides some of the best skiing in North America, and Vancouver Island slopes are second to none! By virtue of its location between the Pacific Ocean and the Strait of Georgia, snow conditions on Vancouver Island are amongst the best in BC. Mt. Washington gets heaped with as much as 13 metres (43 feet) of snow during the season.

The islands of British Columbia boast the mildest climate in Canada. Thrill-seekers can golf, sail or scuba dive in the morning, ski in the afternoon, and revel in a hot tub in the evening. Whether you ski the diamond slopes or challenge the all-natural Snowboard Park at Mount Washington, you’ll have a winter vacation to cherish for a lifetime.
