Mount Washington in Courtenay, British Columbia also has the deepest snow pack in the world and the most “magic carpets” (moving ramps that take skiers from the base of the hill back to the top) among resorts in North America.

If you’ve never heard of this sensational Vancouver Island property, this fresh deal should entice you to take a look. The Early Season Special costs only $60 per person per night, with a two-night stay.

The deal includes nightly accommodations and lift tickets. It is available from December 6-19, 2013, and the room rate is based on four people sharing a two-bedroom condo. Takes on Mount Washington writer Kathleen Kenna hit the slopes on Vancouver Island and was struck by the uniqueness of this mountain that is adjacent to Strathcona Provincial Park, the oldest park in the province.

Kenna writes: Mount Washington Alpine Resort is huge, at 688 acres, and still relatively undiscovered. Only 2 percent of its annual visitors are international. ‘It’s the islanders’ own mountain,’ says Courtenay resident Brent Curtain, who has lived and worked at ski resorts in Japan, Australia and Whistler, BC. … It’s less crowded than BC’s top ski resort, Whistler Blackcomb, which draws 2 million visitors a year.”
