Vancouver’s North Shore is Metro Vancouver’s portal to winter wonderlands!
While Vancouver is maybe most famous for its proximity to Whistler when it comes to skiing and snowboarding, the North Shore has three, count ‘em, THREE mountain resorts with fantastic winter sports! Come explore our backyard wonderlands!
Located in the heart of North Vancouver, Grouse Mountain does it all: it’s a beautiful park, a ski resort, and even a kind of community centre for locals! A short, scenic gondola ride from the base of the mountain takes you to the Grouse Mountain village, where you can set out on a new adventure! Go alpine skiing, snowboarding, and even snowshoe spelunking through a formation of snow caves! There’s also an old fashioned skating pond which is ESPECIALLY romantic as the sun sets. You can also taking in an educational show at the Theatre in The Sky, a high-def movie experience that shows incredible footage of local wildlife. Grouse Mountain is where locals play – come see why we make it home!
The mountain of choice for locals who love skiing, Cypress has great slopes and also features Nordic ski trails for people who want to get fit in a winter paradise! Cypress recently invested 1.2 MILLION into snowmaking technologies so you know you’re going to have a great ski experience any time you visit!
Located in Mt. Seymour Provincial Park, Mt. Seymour ski resort is truly stunning. A slightly longer drive, you can still make it to Seymour from North Vancouver in under half an hour – that’s a small time investment for such gorgeous skiing! Mt. Seymour has all sorts of training camps and classes too, if you want to get a taste of the slopes but aren’t yet comfortable strapping planks to your feet to fall down a mountain!
