Snowshoeing enthusiasts create a pattern in the snow of Paradise Meadows

Extended snowshoe season on Mt. Washington

The VI Mountain Centre intends on celebrating the late season snow by running a variety of snowshoe-based group programs in May and June.

The Vancouver Island Mountain Centre on Mount Washington wants to help as many people as possible “experience the freedom” of the seasonal duality where sand, flip flops, snow and snowshoes coexist.

The VI Mountain Centre intends on celebrating the late season snow by running a variety of snowshoe-based group programs in May and June.

So why not get a group of 10-40 friends, co-workers or a team together and come up and play in the snow and/or spend a night with us while your mountain bike is in getting a tune up?

You can find the Vancouver Island Mountain Centre at the end of Nordic Road across from Raven Lodge and Strathcona Park’s Paradise Meadows.

The non-profit Mountain Centre provides group accommodation for up to 40 people, full kitchen and dining facilities plus meeting rooms and a Fitness Centre.

It’s a perfect location to start your outdoor adventure programs or to use as a training base in the 3,500-foot alpine or simply for a restful retreat.
