Mountains of Snow

With the wild windy weather throughout the whole north Vancouver Island the past week, the alpine area of Mount Washington adjacent to Paradise Meadows in Strathcona Park has now received over 1.6 m of new snow.

The avalanche danger on Vancouver Island is now considered high in the back-country. The Vancouver Island Avalanche Bulletin report is here.

Currently the snow base is 5.2 m, and a total of 11.1 m  has fallen this season.
