Skiing and Snowboarding
Open on weekends and select Mondays only, the untouched snowfall accumulates all week long leaving the slopes steeped in Vancouver Island’s best powder. Mount Cain's lifts include: two T-bars and one beginner’s handle tow, giving access to 21 runs and 457 metres of vertical drop.
There are many unmarked trails and logging access roads. Light touring equipment and knowledge of the local area is recommended for sub-alpine trails. For the mountaineer, there are three 1,800m peaks within a 5km radius. Please note the area outside the Mount Cain ski area is not patrolled and may require self-rescue.
Snowshoe the backcountry and discover alpine winter adventure. Trek around Mount Cain's meadows or explore the beauty of the forests. If you can walk, you can snowshoe! Please note snowshoeing at Mount Cain is in non-patrolled wilderness areas and is done at your own risk, self rescue may be necessary.
