About this map

Name: Vancouver Island topographic map, elevation, terrain.

Location: Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada (48.30888 -128.43292 50.87683 -123.26476)

Average elevation: 411 m

Minimum elevation: -3 m

Maximum elevation: 3,160 m

The rain shadow effect of the island's mountains, as well as the mountains of Washington's Olympic Peninsula, creates wide variation in precipitation. The west coast is considerably wetter than the east coast. Average annual precipitation ranges from 6,650 mm (262 in) at Hucuktlis Lake on the west coast (making it the wettest place in North America) to only 608 mm (23.9 in) at Victoria Gonzales, the driest recording station in the provincial capital of Victoria. Precipitation is heaviest in the autumn and winter. Snow is rare at low altitudes, but is common on the island's mountaintops in winter. Skiing is popular at Mount Washington in the mid-island, with an elevation of 1,588 m (5,210 ft).
