Explore a secret valley to discover a hidden couloir as you begin your technical climb to reach the summit of the Comox Glacier, or take a guided hike to conquer the Golden Hinde, the highest point in the Vancouver Island Ranges.
Scale Mount Finlayson in Victoria or Mount Maxwell on Salt Spring Island. Hike the Puntledge River in Courtenay or Mount H’Kusam near Sayward. Day hikers and experienced climbers can enjoy the various technical climbs and hiking opportunities available throughout the Island region, through self-guided tours or with a professional guide.
Skiing and Snowboarding On Vancouver Island
Enjoy the snow on Mount Washington in the Comox Valley, or Mount Cain on the north end of the Island, to discover fresh powder, great runs, ski-in and ski-out accommodations, and amazing views. Satisfy the need for speed as you ski or snowboard the slopes, or stretch your legs and feel the crisp air, skiing or snowshoeing the cross-country trails. Or slide down the gentle toboggan and tube-friendly trails before heading back to your chalet to sip hot chocolates and watch the sunset.
Every season brings adventure and good times on the mountains of Vancouver Island.
