Please note that it will be cash only in the Cain Cafe this weekend. JUST the Cafe, not the ticket booth...which WILL have debit. Repeat...to get food you'll need CA$H money. It's worth it for the food....and yes they'll still report it on their taxes. :p

BIG NEWS!!! We are having a soft opening for hard-core snow enthusiasts this weekend. That means the lower half of the mountain will be open. Our winter elves have been working very hard to bring you the first opening on Vancouver Island this year. Please be patient as we break in new employees and get up and running. Bring chains (and use them!). Dogs on a leash (and clean up after them). No unauthorized snowmobiles on the hill. Be cool.
UPDATE November 25th. Training weekend starts tomorrow morning, November 26th. PLEASE do not attempt to access the mountain until later this evening. There is a metre of snow on the road and our grader operator needs time to clear it, which will likely take some time. It will take longer if you're stuck or in the way. Carry chains. Full winter conditions currently prevail. Also a reminder that there are no unauthorized snowmobiles permitted on Mount Cain.
Our events schedule is up. We will be adding a Mount Cain ski team as well which I will be adding the schedule to shortly. Starts January.
