About Us

Mount Washington is home to one of the most spectacular coastal alpine settings in North America. With the Pacific Ocean as a backdrop on one side and scenic Strathcona Park bordering the other, Mount Washington offers a pristine environment for your next Alpine or Nordic adventure.

In winter, Mount Washington receives a legendary 11 metres of annual snowfall. The resort is acknowledged as the home of Canada's deepest pile, however, it's not all about the snow! In summer, the mountain and surrounding resort community transforms itself into a major destination for hikers and summer alpine enthusiasts.

Mount Washington Alpine Resort is a privately owned resort community, open year round, located near the very popular Comox Valley. First opened in 1979, Mount Washington started as two double chairlifts and a rough road. Mount Washington has seen incredible growth in its short history. Fully serviced by the divided inland Island Highway to the base of the hill, a paved all season Strathcona Parkway brings skiers, hikers and alpine enthusiasts of all walks to the Resort area. Development plans for the coming years will help maintain Mount Washington's position in the ever growing tourism industry on Vancouver Island.
