Do you want to celebrate Family Day weekend in a fun and active way? Are you looking for a good reason to visit the northernmost part of Vancouver Island for a change of pace? Mount Cain in Port McNeill will be host this year to the annual Vancouver Island Backcountry Festival. Come well prepared for a good time on the mountainous slopes!
There will be an awesome raffle with gear donated from the festival’s sponsors. 100% of the proceeds made at this raffle will go to fund the Vancouver Island Avalanche Center’s 2018 forecasting season! This is a great way to win some cool prizes while also keeping the mountain a safe and fun-filled adventure for visitors!
Stick around for the festival’s epic party featuring live DJs and beer gardens in the afternoon. The beer is being generously donated by the Cumberland Brewing Company. Proceeds from the gardens will be split between helping fund VIAC and the Cain Ski Patrol.
Book your accommodations soon and in advance! Visit the festival’s official website to find accommodations now. For those looking to share a ride, the Mt. Cain Carpool group can help. Contact the event organizers for more details.
