About the ski tour

Thinking of going skiing somwhere like Mount Washington this winter? Why not come improve your skiing or learn to ski with WEA this winter. Great for couples, groups, families or individuals (extra cost), the Mount Cain ski learning experience is all about providing an alternative, to classic adult group ski lessons and private ski lessons. WEA understands that planning a ski trip and driving all the way to Mount Washington or Mount Cain is a massive undertaking. So although you can just book ski instruction only, our program is designed to take care of your entire winter vacation. We will transport you from Vancouver Island locations like Victoria, Duncan, Nanaimo, Courtenay and Campbell River to Mount Cain, provide you with excellent meals, rustic ski-in accomodations and top-notch ski improvement training. This is a 2 to 3 day, on demand, fully customizable private ski program for all ability levels with a minimum group size of 2 participants. We are also able to offer similar ski tours at other BC and Alberta ski resorts.

Why this program?

  • • Participants ski with the same Canadian ski instructor for the duration of the program

  • • All ski instructors are certified, highly-experienced and skilled

  • • The program focuses on enjoyable skill development rather than on just having fun – this produces an exceptional client experience rather than the need for more lessons in the future – and repeat business

  • • A smaller resort means exceptional value, with more time on the slopes and less chance of colliding with other skiers

  • • Rustic ski-in accomodation at a great value

  • • Participants get to experience small resort community culture

  • • Snow conditions are frequently exceptional because of the resort’s location and limited public operating hours (Mt. Cain is only open to the public 3 days per week)

Where on Vancouver Island is Mount Cain Alpine Park?

Everyone has heard of Mount Washington and Mount Washington ski lessons but have you heard of Mount Cain? Mount Cain is a quiet, local ski resort located on Northern Vancouver Island approximately 1 hour and 45 min north of Campbell River BC. Don’t let the small size of Cain fool you! With plenty of powder from an annual average snowfall of over 15 meters (38 feet), no crowds and varied terrain to explore, Mount Cain is one of Canada’s best kept secrets. We also have the ability to provide instruction and similar experiences at certain other BC & Alberta resorts.

Ski Tour Safety & Food

Skiing Safety

Skiing is an incredibly fun activity but carries risk. Western Educational Adventures takes safety seriously. Not only do we want our participants to have an exceptional time, but just as importantly, we want them to return home safe and sound. All of Western Educational Adventures staff are certified in high level first aid and have years of experience managing risk in the outdoors. Our ski instructors are certified with the CSIA - Canadian Ski Instructors Alliance and have been teaching kids skiing lessons on Vancouver Island dor years, they really know their stuff! You won’t find better ski lessons or a more qualified ski instructing team anywhere else!

WEA Food and Food Allergies

We believe that a good experience starts with good nutrition. Proper diet and eating habits are lacking in today’s society - a result of readily available fast foods, processed foods and a lack of nutritional education. We strive to provide quality, simple, wholesome meals with limited processed ingredients – in addition to the occasional smores and limited other tasty treats. This is part of why we include our participants in all meal planning, purchasing and cooking.

We are also very experienced in dealing with dietary restrictions and serious food allergies. Great care is taken to avoid serious participant food allergens whenever possible. Where this is not possible, we take great care to avoid cross contamination of ingredients.

"Landon guided an overnight trip for our family on the Juan de Fuca trail. Healthy eating is important to us. Landon helped our kids build an outdoor oven and they were soon baking an amazing dinner. It’s an incredible feeling knowing that you can look after yourself in the outdoors."

-Carole Damnjanovic
