DON"T MOVE TO VANCOUVER ISLAND! Really don't. There are soo many better places in BC to go. Mt.Washington is not worth it. The park used to be good but not these past few years, the terrain is good but there is better in BC (Revelstoke, Silver Star, Whistler just to name a few.) and it gets old fast. The cost of skiing Washington is stupidly high. They have a monopoly on the island ski market and use it their full advantage. The pass prices have been rising the past few seasons with little additions or improvements to the mountain, hell right now they have the most expensive youth seasons pass in the prvince. I mean sure we have some lakes and rivers but what place in BC doesn't?
I mean yea there is also Mt.Cain but they are only open weekends and unless your big into backcountry skiing then there isn't enough there to keep you hooked all season. It's a small hill but if your lucky enough to be there when it dumps then it's nothing short of epic.
I'd look into towns like Kelowna or Revelstoke or even Vancouver.
