Welcome! Know the Pass pretty well. Hubby's brother and his wife lived there for years. Andy has since passed away and wife moved to Red Deer. Many fond memories of the Pass. Dona

I can't say that you'll never see snow on the Island, but it is pretty rare, near the water. Keep some winter gear just in case. Enjoy your stay.

Still remember 1996!! Work truck wasn't even a speed bump under the snow out front in Victoria. Had over 4 feet on my deck. Hope that never happens again.

Hi and welcome. W spent the last 3 winters in Nanaimo, the Living Forest Campground. beautiful sites, overlooking the ocean. $360 per month, plus power, which will run anywhere from $50-$130 per month, depending on how you heat your RV. There is a very nice Snowbird group and activities put on by the owners. I would highly recommend getting a de-humidifier, it will make life easier and less damp during the monsoon season. Oh yes, it does rain, a lot, but not the snow and cold of Alberrta 😎. snow will arrive sometime after Christmas but will only stay for a few days. Nanaimo is very central for visiting everything on the island. The further north you go, Courtenay, Comox for example, there is definitely more of the white stuff. So enjoy your winter.!

Thanks for the info, not sure where we are going yet. The best deal for winter I guess as we have to find jobs when we get there and transportation close by as we are not towing a car etc. I will keep that camp ground in mind... Take care.. Drive safe
