Skiing - A great day trip to Mt. Washington from Gabriola

There's so much you can do on our fantastic island, but if you're craving skiing- it's an easy day trip from Gabriola Island to Mount Washington. I was just looking into the snow base on mountains in BC, the "on the snow website" shows that Mount Washington has a base of 254cm(currently the most in BC). Kokanee Winterfest (Jan 11-15 2010) is a great time to head up to the mountain, with half-price midweek full-day lift tickets and Nordic trail passes.
Lift Hours: 9:00am to 3:30pm Daily
Night Skiing Hours: Thursday to Saturday and holidays3:30pm to 10:00pm

I find that it's the perfect day, I like to catch the 7:50 ferry from Gabriola and head straight up, and return tired but content on the 5:55 ferry.
