2014 Festival Information

We are proud to be hosting the fourth annual Vancouver Island Backcountry Festival at Mount Washington Alpine Resort at Ted's Bar on February 7th!

We have some amazing gear (Highlights include jackets from Westcomb and OR, custom Skis from Snoday, a splitboard from Libtech, custom splitboard bindings from Spark R&D, and a whole lot more...)

Doors open at 5pm with the gear raffle around 8pm. We will have a lineup of DJ's that will keep the party going as long as everyone can dance! Let's do a snow dance and see if we can't get some snow on the coast :)

There is a prize for best costume, so get creative!

Mark it on your calendars! Join the Facebook event! Tell your friends! 

What's going on?

Oh, the plans we had... 

Mother nature has been cruel to the Pacific Northwest this year, and we've been scrambling trying to figure out how to handle it. Cain is a no-go, but we've decided that instead of cancelling the event entirely we would simply move it somewhere closer and more accessible and party out our low-snow-level woes.

So come do a Snow Dance with us, win some swag, and get to know your fellow touring brethren a bit better. We can't control the weather, but the weather does not have to stop us from having a good time!


Friday Evening: Fundraiser Raffle 

We will be holding a raffle on Friday night around 8:00, 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 2012/2013 season.

Friday Night: Party!

We've always had an awesome time throwing a party  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 - there is a prize for best costume!

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