Situated on the north end of Vancouver Island, Mount Cain offers a unique experience to skiers, snowboarders and backcountry skiers. At Mount Cain you’ll find deep powder, 21 runs, with 1499 vertical feet of terrain. We’re open three days a week (weekends and select Mondays) which permits the powder to accumulate all week. Mt. Cain has few line-ups and the welcoming atmosphere of a family oriented mountain.

Mount Cain has the highest base elevation of any coastal ski hill in BC, Alaska and Washington State. Our peak elevation is second only to Whistler.

Mt. Cain is located near Schoen Lake Provincial Park and is run by the non-profit Mount Cain Alpine Park Society, Vancouver Island’s only community owned and operated ski hill!
