Welcome to UVic. It's a sick school, and if you're doing res you're gonna have fun. I just finished up my first year and it was awesome.
As for Mt. Washington, I'd say the park is comparable to Grouse from what I remember. I only rode washy once this winter, most of my days were still at Whistler this season. It's a 2.5 hour drive or so from Victoria, and the ticket is about $50. The rails were all set up well when I was there because there was a comp going down so I don't know how they usually are, and the jump line was about 4 or 5. Ranging from 15-50 feet or so. The rest of the mountain is fun and jibby too. It's fun, but a bit of a hassle to make it out there from res if you don't have a car.
Skiing's rad, hating's bad.
