Winter Activity Program Description

WEA offers a unique set of Victoria BC & Vancouver Island based winter programs that create life-enhancing learning experiences while exposing youth to winter outdoor opportunities that are not often accessible. WEA's winter programs introduce (and educate) our participants to new areas, cultures and unique natural environments. We run everything from Vancouver Island snowshoe tours to ski trips to winter survival skills. Our winter Pro-D Day programs include ski / snowboard & winter skills days. Our winter ski and snowboard programs vary from one day (Pro-D Day) programs to 3 day weekend programs and 5 day Christmas holiday programs. By utilizing Vancouver Island ski hills that offer both unique terrain features and snow conditions, we are able to provide our participants with life enhancing learning experiences and rapidly improve both their skiing / boarding abilities and on snow decision-making skills.

Everyone has heard of Mount Washington 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.
