    if you want night life, go to vancouver… if you want a HUGE variety of terrain, from an entire double black section of the mountain, to just learning to ride, then come to mt washington. Epic snow, low lift waits, big park, 45 minutes till riding from 2 different cities (im not sure why some one complained about the night life on the hill, generally its just staff and rich families that rent/buy cabins that stay on the hill because town is so incredibly close.. it would be like staying at marmot basin itself instead of going into jasper.. clearly they were confused with what they wanted to do and how to do it)Just watch out, usually they have to dig out the chair lifts, however, due to El ninio, 1/10 years or so there will be almost no snow on the hill. the mountain is really good about honoring passes the next year, but if you’re travelling this could cause issues.

    I have to ask if the people that rave about Mt Washington have ever been to quality ski resorts. The lack of night life, family fun, professional staff compared to real quality resorts cannot even be compared to as being close to the same.In my years of skiing there….since the hills opening, I have always hoped it would come close to the family atmosphere that Forbidden Plateau had. The only thing it had was Herb Bradley, that carried over from Forbidden….what a true professional and caring man.The day ticket prices do not warrant the facility and the build your own pass is a joke….let the customer pick the features they want instead of being made to get a gold pass which includes snowshoeing and nordic skiing which are of little interest to the skier/snowboarder and of course 2 free demos which the ski manufactures offer free many times throughout the season to promote their equipment.Lets be totally honest….if there was any option to another ski resort this would not be where people would be going. Mt Cain is smaller and has the feeling of the old Forbidden or Green Mtn….too bad it is not open more days and so far out of the way.A truly good resort would appreciate the customers and realize they are what they are operating a business for….making a sport available to all, making it fun and making it affordable. Especially when there is so many people that would like to enjoy it but with the high cost it does not fit the budget. I congratulate the facilities that recognize when times are tougher and want to see more people not raising the prices just because too many managers want to make bigger earnings.Not all is bad about Mt Washington….the snow is usually abundant and if the management could control that too they would. Have fun on the hill and get a good look at the web cam and when you are being told it is snowing don’t always believe it until you get a look for yourself since they tend to embellish the snow report.Written by an honest critic!

    Wonderful hike. Great trails, ranging from 20 minutes to a few hours. My only regret is that I didn’t come prepared for swimming. Different weather system than the rest of the Comox valley; it can be hot and sunny on Mount Washington and socked in fog from Campbell River to Parksville. A great escape 😉

    Is THE place to be. Can never get enough. After 10 years of not skiing, this is by far the greatest come back. The atmosphere is awesome and the people are memorable !! I’d recommend it to anyone !!
