Input on Mount Washington

Hey guys,

My cousins live on Vancouver Island and invited me out this season for some riding. Just wondering what people that have gone there have thought of it.

I know it can get windy, but they get a lot of snow.

Thanks in advance

I tried to hit Tuckerman's Ravine on Mt. Washington every year while in school up in New England, but the cards never played out right. Its the place to go for late season in New England. Here's a link to a site and forum with everything you'll need to know...

It's pretty rad! It's very wet heavy coastal snow, but they get a ton! Often their mid-season base is over 400cm, with an annual snowfall over 1000cm. The new backside terrain is where it's at, plenty of pow, cliffs, steep trees. If you have the chance totally go tear it up!

Westjet (Canada's version of Southwestern) flies to the island. No ferry. Sounds like I'm hitting up the west this year now! Thanks for the input

And have you researched the fares? And where the airport is located in relation to Courtenay?

Well my cousins live on the island, they already offered to grab me from the airport. Said they are just under an hour away from Mt. Wash. And fares, well WestJet is having a 50% off sale so I am going to grab them now.

Any input on when to go? Either Dec or Mid-Jan. What do you guys think?
