If you're looking for activities beyond alpine, all snowbound tastes are catered for. Mount Washington provides guests with one of the top-rated Nordic experiences in North America. The resort’s post and beam Raven Lodge, perched on the edge of Strathcona Provincial Park, is the epicenter of Vancouver Island’s cross-country community. Over 55 km or 34 miles of world-class machine groomed cross-country trails exist around the resort and through scenic park lands.

In addition to cross-country skiing, top off your Island Nordic experience with a day of snowshoeing in Mount Washington’s snow-frosted forests. The Raven Lodge’s popular evening Snowshoe Fondue returns for another sumptuous winter. Don't forget to book the fondue in advance so you don't miss out!
