I think the best place on Vancouver Island is Mount Washington in the Comox Valley it is only 45 minutes from downtown Comox. Once you get up to this snowy paradise you will first have to pay your ticket, then if you do not have skiing or snowboarding equipment you will have to rent equipment at Mount Washington’s rental store and if you have equipment you probably but your boots on near you car and just but your Ski’s or your snowboard near the mountain.
There are tons of runs up at Mount Washington my personal all time favorite is the Terrain Park. The Terrain Park is full of enormous jumps both launchers and kickers, they also have a variety of sick grinds. There is also really amazing Black Diamond Moguls. A lot of you guys probably don’t now what Black Diamond means, well Black Diamond means it is a level of hardness, the easiest level is Green=beginner, Blue=intermediate and Black=expert.
In the summer time you can mountain bike! I love to mountain bike, Mount Washington has the most sickest mountain bike trails in the world. Their trails levels are the same exact as skiing and snowboarding. My favourite place to go to mountain biking is the jump park but it is closed right now which absolutely sucks. While your Mountain Biking you have to wear the following equipment: Full face helmet, shin pads, elbow pads and mountain biking shoes.
