Whether you like to ski, snowboard, snow tube or just dress up in super cool ski gear and relax with a cup of hot chocolate, Mount Washington Alpine Resort in Courtenay, BC is the place to go. This ski resort is on the eastern edge of the Vancouver Island ranges and is about a three-hour drive north of Victoria. Our gorgeous bed and breakfast, Prancing Horse Retreat, is located closer to Victoria on Malahat Mountain, but our Timberline Chalet happens to be right near the Hawk 6 lift Mount Washington.
With the great weather we have on Vancouver Island, perfect conditions and a snow base of 129 cm right now, we wanted to not only highlight this great ski resort but also give you the inside scoop on our fabulous Timberline Chalet. As we mentioned, it is nestled right next to the Hawk 6 lift, which offers the perfect ski in/ski out experience. There is a great area to drop off all of your skis, boots and gear when you come in for lunch and laundry facilities to make sure everything is warm and dry for the next round of slopes.
There are three floors in this brand new log home and plenty of room for two couples or a family who would desire two bedrooms. It is also pet-friendly so your other “best friend” can join you! You will have a fully equipped gourmet kitchen with a Heartland gas convection stove, custom bar, stereo, TV, and VCR/DVD player. If you want to take the morning easy or even a day off of the hill, this lodge is cozy and relaxing so you can enjoy a coffee or glass of wine by the fire or relax in the new hot tub.
There are always great events happening at Mount Washington such as the Snowshoe Fondue every Friday and Saturday night at 5pm. Come out and enjoy the great outdoors, ski, and relax at our chalet. You can read our rental policies, rates and see inside pictures online. Reserve directly through our website or contact us at (250) 743-9378 for more information.
