Snowboarding on Vancouver Island

Vancouver Island receives one of the world's deepest annual snowfalls and that spells awesome riding from December through to late-June. Lift-junkies will want to check out Mt Washington, the Island's premier alpine resort and Mt Cain the North Island's backroads, powder-hound's hideout.

The Island is also home to some incredible backcountry terrain but reaching it is not for the faint of heart. Checkout our guidebook - Island Turns and Tours for lots of info on Island backcountry riding.
