The beautiful Mount Washington Alpine Resort in the Comox Valley is the perfect recreation spot for everyone in the family. The mountain boasts over 3 metres of snow on 1,700 acres of terrain including 505 metres of vertical terrain! The mountain offers activities like ski school, a tube park and even night skiing.
Whether you’re worn out after a long day of outdoor activity or just starting your day, there are plenty of food options available. Start at the Raven Lodge, Alpine Lodge Café or Eagle View Bistro for breakfast and coffee, you can even return in the afternoon for a quick snack or lunch. If you’re looking to spend as much time on the slopes as possible, hit the Marmot Express for a speedy lunch right on the lower level of the Alpine Lodge. When you’re finished for the day and looking to unwind, visit Ted’s Bar & Grill. Ted’s offers craft beer on tap, cocktails and casual pub food. On weekends Ted’s is open late with their house band and DJ keeping everyone entertained and dancing with music starting at 9:30pm.
If you’re in need of some new gear or if you’re staying on the mountain and need some grocery items, there are various shops to ensure you have everything you need to have a comfortable stay. The Corner Store carries all the day-to-day essentials like produce, snacks, frozen foods and of course… beer and wine! If you’re in the market for skiing equipment check out Outdoor Elements or Raven Retail. These retailers offer top of the line gear and accessories!
In addition to downhill skiing and tubing, there are also 55 kilometres of cross-country ski trails, 25 kilometres of snowshoeing trails and even the new Fat Bike… that’s right, bike riding in the snow! Not a fan of the snow? That’s okay! Mount Washington is now operating on a 4-season model. The mountain biking park is being re-vamped, a 2.3 kilometre zip line is being installed and finally, trampoline bungee jumping. We can’t wait to see what summer 2019 brings to Mount Washington Resort!
