Great little hike

The views along the hike are really nice, as for the view on top of the world, makes it super easy to see your entire surroundings with a quick turn of your head. The comox valley... read more

We took family up to Mount Washington in August, Lots of bicycling happening on the trails around us. We took the lift ride up to the top of the mountain. Unfortunately, it was a pretty misty/foggy day, so we missed seeing much of the view, still the view on the ride up was fantastic. Got a real kick at the... More

This resort is awesome! I suggested staying in the village as it is quiter. The hawk and the eagle are both very good but there is also th sunrise and the boomerang and whisky jack. Great atmosphere, great people and good snow!

The views along the hike are really nice, as for the view on top of the world, makes it super easy to see your entire surroundings with a quick turn of your head. The comox valley is beautiful. They also have some great downhill biking which is also a lot of fun.

I love this area for hiking. You can walk the boardwalk or take the upper trails. It's wiser to go with someone. In the summer you can still access the

On a clear day like today, the view from "Top of the World" was breathtaking. It was easy to see places like Powell River to the east across the Salish Sea to the mainland, north beyond Campbell River and the northern end of Quadra Island or south past Denman and Hornby to the end of Texada Island.

What a wonderful place to visit. We used the chairlifts to get up the mountain and took one of the trails to walk back down on a lovely sunny day, through the flower strewn Alpine meadows. The cost isn't great and even better with a two for one deal on the lift pass. Well marked trails with some excellent view... More

Mount Washington Vancouver Island BC There is something for everyone. The perfect place for all seasons offering spectacular views, great skiing in the winter months and great hiking and mountain bike trails. The only problem is the hiking trail signs are missing so there are no directions which trail to take. Apart from that the day pass is perfectly priced,... More

A little cool the day we were visiting. Bring extra clothes for your hike. Just in case , weather was awesome below but the further you climbed the temperature changed, it is best to wear layers. Great place for kids and the whole family.

Not the most incredible mountain but fun nonetheless. Runs are fairly short with some steep terrain off the Boomerang or traversing from the Eagle to the Hawk. Sunrise chair is a must for more comfortable skiers who don't want the lineups that washy can have. Be ready for the challenge of wetter, heavier, west coast snow (even if it is... More

Highway up the mountain appeared to be well maintained. Cost for myself and boyfriend for rentals and lift $280 (expensive but no different from any other resort). My only problem with this resort is there isn't enough signage outside of lodge, or anywhere really. In other words, signage or resort maps for a first timer at this resort could be... More
