• Visit Vancouver Island for a Skiing Adventure

    2010-01-13

    With millions of viewers tuning into the 2010 Winter Olympics, the number of people inspired to hit the slopes in the coming months is expected to increase significantly. For Olympic travelers inspired to dust off their skis this winter, Vancouver Island offers two alpine resorts and mountains that could provide challenges to even the most experienced athletes.

    For travelers visiting the eastern side of the island Mount Cain provides light powder and challenging slopes that could provide a day of fun for the whole family. As the island's only community-owned and operated ski and snowboard facility, the family-oriented mountain features a number of lifts that cut down on waiting times and drier snow than Vancouver Island's other coastal mountains.

    Closer to the coast is Mount Washington, the second busiest winter destination in all of British Columbia. The Mount Washington Alpine Resort boasts 60 marked runs - including a few black diamond slopes, cross country skiing trails, snow camping, snow shoeing paths, two terrain parks and an average snowfall of 10 meters in the winter.

    One of the area's tallest mountains, Mount Washington's chairlift will drop daring adventurers a full mile above sea level, allowing visitors a 360-degree view of nearby landmarks like the Strait of Georgia and the Sunshine Coast.
