Property Description
Mt. Washington is Vancouver Island's premier winter sports centre. With over 1600 acres of skiable terrain, it has something to offer even the most demading skier or snowboarder. Steep and deep for the serious enthusiast, wide and gentle groomers for the more relaxed, this mountain has it all. And lots of it, boasting an average annual snowfall of over 600 cm. Miles of cross-country and snowshoeing trails provide either a strenuous workout or a relaxing wander through the forest. This is the gateway to beautiful Strathcona Park, with it's immense peaks, sparkling lakes, and deep valleys.

It's not just in the winter that Mt. Washington shines either. During the summer It becomes a mecca for mountain bikers and hikers, providing easy access to the alpine via two operating chairlifts. Take your bike to the top and enjoy the thrill of the downhill trails with their many features. Ride the chair to the peak just to wander around the easy trails, enjoying the unbelievable 360 degree view over the Strait of Georgia, Desolation Sound, Strathcona Park, and nearly the entire east coast of Vancouver Island. Truly a vantage worth the ride. Hiking the trails of Strathcona Park is also extremely popular, there are several significant peaks within a day or two's walk.

Our unit is located in Bear Lodge, the newest on-hill accommodation on Mt. Washington. It is on the first floor for easy access to the slopes or the underground parking garage. It is a one-bedroom unit, with a hideabed couch in the living room, allowing four people to stay comfortably. All the amenities you could want are provided such as TV (also in the bedroom),DVD, stereo, gas fireplace, deck, games, fully appointed kitchen, and a large bathroom with soaker tub. This unit was designed as wheelchair accessable, with many appropriate features.

The condo's south-facing view is breathtaking on a clear day. The jagged peaks of Strathcona Park shimmer beyond the deck and large sliding glass windows. This is the quiet side of the building, away from the nightly groomers on the slopes of the north side. During the ski season, this building is one of the most truly ski-in, ski-out on the mountain. Just steps from the run and lifts, it's so easy to enjoy. The underground parking is also a wonderful thing after a week on the mountain. It's not unknown for a metre of snow to fall in a couple of days, imagine digging your vehicle out after a week of that? At Bear Lodge you don't have to. A heated driveway and entrance steps keep them snow-free all winter.

There is nearly no end to the wonderful features of Mt. Washington, Bear Lodge, and our unit in particular. Please contact us for more information, or to answer any questions you might have.

Activities & Attractions
Mt. Washington Alpine Resort is first and foremost a winter wonderland for the skier or snowboarder. More than 1600 acres of lift-serviced terrain is available. Although a family-oriented mountain, with 65% of it's terrain classified as beginner or intermediate, recent installation of the Boomerang quad chair has provided safe access to over 400 acres of back-country steep and deep! Two terrain parks are brimming with rails, tabletops, and awesome hits. The Ozone Tube Park is a total adrenalin rush for kids of all ages. Located adjacent to Strathcona Provincial Park, Mt. Washington Alpine Resort boasts some of the world's best cross-country ski trails. It has been chosen by several countries for training and accommodation before and during the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver/Whistler.

Summer attractions abound also. Two chairlifts operate once the snow is gone, lifting riders and their mountain bikes to the very top of the mountain to enjoy thrilling trails with many features, both man-made and natural, to enhance the spin down. Easy trails also encircle the mountain-top, providing amazing views of mountains, valleys, and the sparkling waters of the Pacific Ocean surrounding the peak. A comfortable ride back down means even hikers of limited mobility can enjoy the high alpine environment.

Golf, fishing, and shopping are just a few of the many other activites available in the nearby communities. Many excursions for bear or whale watching, surfing, sightseeing, or whatever else you can think of can be enjoyed.
