Skiing and Snowboarding in Vancouver

Snow seldom falls in the city, yet Vancouverites enjoy some of the best downhill and cross-country ski facilities in North America.

The twinkling lights of the local ski mountains - Grouse Mountain, Cypress and Mount Seymour - attract the city's residents and tourists alike, urging them to strap on snowboards, skis or snow shoes throughout winter months.  With lifts opening in the morning, and certain runs open until 10pm, you can pack as much skiing or riding into your day as you can handle. 

And just two hours north, lay the twin internationally renowned ski mountains, Whistler and Blackcomb. This top ranked destination ski resort draws skiers from all over the world for downhill and helicopter skiing.
