Vancouver Island Backcountry Festival

Winter 2015, Mount Cain

Festival Information

We are proud to be hosting the fifth annual Vancouver Island Backcountry Festival.

UPDATE! We have new dates: March 28/29th! 

You can help us make this the best year yet by joining and sharing the facebook event!

What's going on?

This has been a very strange winter, but we are determined to not let it stop us.  One of the main reasons we started the Backcountry Festival was to provide a venue to bring people together and help strengthen the amazing community around backcountry skiing and snowboarding on the island, and we can do that without the lifts running.

Cain has offered to provide accomodations even with the hill closed (email accommodations@mountcain.com to book) as well as letting us run the event indoors if the weather turns foul, so we are going ahead with the event as planned. We hope you will join us!

Saturday Evening: Fundraiser Raffle 

We will be holding a raffle on Saturday night around 5:00, and raffling off  gear that has been graciously donated by our sponsors.

All proceeds go directly to the Vancouver Island Avalanche Center Society to fund the forecasting for the 2014/2015 season.

Remember, there is no ATM at Cain, so bring cash with you!

Saturday Night: Party!

We've always had an awesome time throwing a part, and we're going to do it again! 

This will start sometime after dinner and continue until everyone is too tired to continue dancing. Onsies or other costumes highly recommended - this is Cain! Think of all the costume ideas that a bizzarely warm winter will allow...

Our gear raffle will include products and services from all of these fantastic companies:
