As you're coming to or from Mount Cain. We are just showing some love for our friends in Sayward. You know, lively Sayward where the bustle never stops? Lyle Fast is hosting a tea house at Mountain Side Farm on Friday Night. Check out the habitat of a real mountain weirdo. Look for the roadside sign before Sayward. Won't you have some tea? Also, the Crossroads Restaurant at the Sayward Gas Station Junction is open now. They recommend the Sunday night drive home pizza.

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.

Just a reminder that it's training weekend up at Mount Cain this weekend for all staff and ski patrol. The road will be plowed on Friday Night.
