  1. Hello John, could you send an email to with any further questions. Also check out our website as it gives a pretty good description of our programs and what our organization is up to. Yes, the closest rentals are at the alpine resort. You can ski between the two but it is a little far for young ones. We have excellent programs for all ages and abilities. Our nordic trails are run by Mount Washington Alpine Resort and you will find a nordic trail map on the following link,

  2. Hi there,

    We were looking to come up an try the nordic trails at Mt Washington. Never have been there before we had been looking into accommodations, but as far as I can tell the closest rentals are at the alpine resort 1.5km away.

    I would greatly appreciate if someone could get back to me and confirm this as we have young ones and need to plan ahead?

    Also, I have yet to find a trail map online, a link would be handy.

    Lastly, we have moved to nearby Powell River, and I’d be interested learning more about what your organization does, perhaps we are future members….

    Thank you!
