    The Experience

    Mount Cain is a quiet, local ski resort located on Northern Vancouver Island approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes 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 winter secrets.

    This isn't just any ski weekend! At night, participants stay in a beautiful lodge where they get to practice cooking for the rest of the group (it's just no fun camping at this time of year when you need dry gear every day!). During the day they will learn how to sharpen and wax their skis, learn all about ski design, shapes and materials, and get instruction from expert skiers and snow boarders. When it's time to stop skiing / boarding for the day, participants get to try other activities like sledding or snowshoeing, hike the trails and experience the surrounding ecology or just simply play in the snow! The whole time they are learning to work together, to take care of themselves and appreciate the winter wonder land surrounding them without any technological distratcions. They don't even realize it - they are just having a great time!

    Outdoor Skills

    Participants learn some of the skills required to run a successful ski trip. Everything from making a meal to reading the weather to cleaning up after it's all done. Look out, participants come away from this experience with a serious passion for skiing!

    Some of the skills participants may learn

    • Ski design and shape • Ski manufacturing processes • Reading terrain • Reading weather • How to ski/board • Skiing & alpine safety • Leadership • Decision making • Conflict management • Group management • Intro to avalanche • Cooking • Fire building • Knife and stove safety


    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.
