Mount Washington's alpine meadows and old growth forests are a snowshoeing paradise! We are situated at the edge of Strathcona Provincial Park, the oldest provincial park in BC, containing 250,000 hectares of pristine wilderness. Walk out our back door and into the park where you will experience the beautiful wilderness this area is known for. Our seven marked trails all start just steps from the Raven Lodge, and offer over 16km of varied terrain. We have trails that are beginner friendly, as well as some that will provide a challenge to those seeking it.
