Mount Washington, located on the eastern edge of Vancouver Island, is a popular Winter destination for many residents of the Comox Valley. Every winter close to 400,000 people from all over come to enjoy the mountain and all it has to offer. It first came to be in 1979 and started with two double chairlifts. The mountain has expanded in many ways since its first opening and new plans are always in the works. Mount Washington’s latest project will be a zipline tour, aimed to be completed in 2019. It will consist of 2.3 kilometers and four zipline segments with short walks inbetween to enjoy the beautiful scenery.
In the summertime, the mountain turns from a winter wonderland to a sought after destination for hikers and nature buffs.
