Mount Washington’s Alpine Village A Unique Treat…

There is a distinct difference between “drive-to” accommodation and the original Alpine Village.

When you are searching for a tranquil winter wonderland you will want to explore this unique blend of old world charm nestled in a convenient location close to the slopes. Offering ski-out access, the residences of the Alpine Village range from cozy condos to family-sized chalets at the most affordable rates on the mountain.

Parking… If you are staying the in the Alpine Village parking is provided for you in clearly designated lots at the top of Henry Road and across the street from the General Store off Strathcona Parkway. These lots are not for the use of guests staying in properties designated “drive-to” where ample parking is provided for all guests.

Due to the excessive snowfall Mount Washington can experience it would be wise to move your car or dig it out after a heavy snowfall to ensure it is not damaged by the snowplow.

When Hunger Hits Hard… The Alpine Lodge offers the choice of laid-back dining at Fireweeds, pub-style fare at Fat Teddy’s, Chinese take-out or eat-in at The Mountain Wok, Pie in the Sky Pizza and cafeteria service at The Alpine Café.
Alternatively, you may want to check out Pizza Mogul located at the base of the Hawk Chair or see what new secrets await you at the new Raven Lodge.

Provisions… In case you forgot an essential item such a toilet paper you can equip yourself with emergency supplies from the General Store located on Strathcona Parkway directly below the original Alpine Village. A limited selection of videos are available for rent and it is a BC Licensed Liquor outlet.
