Sitting on the northern tip of Vancouver Island, Mount Cain fired up its first diesel T-bar in 1981. In 1988, the upper T-bar opened, reaching an elevation of 5,800 feet and offering up a whopping 21 runs—and access to a massive backcountry playground. Several easy ski tours get you to the Island range’s fabled terrain, including the expansive West Bowl off the back side, all centered around a decidedly backwoods resort with a core, rootsy feel.
