Mt Seymour

Snow Sports in North Shore

This branch of the region's three main Vancouver-accessible winter playgrounds offers ski and snowboarding areas, plus toboggan and tubing courses. The snowshoe trails and tours are also popular – check out the nighttime snowshoeing and chocolate fondue tour ($59). This is usually the least crowded snowy destination in the region, so you're much more likely to meet the locals here.

Seymour runs a handy winter-season shuttle bus from Vancouver and North Vancouver (round trip $10 to $15).
