There’s so much to see and do on the North Shore mountains this winter, you won’t want to miss any of it!
Grouse Mountain got off to the earliest start this season with their outdoor ice rink opening in early November. There’s no place quite like it for family fun. And it’s a unique experience for those who have never been able to be go ice skating outdoors in the Vancouver area.
Both Cypress Mountain and Grouse Mountain were able to open to skiers and boarders in mid-November – always a big thrill for those seeking to be among those making first tracks of the season. With the unseasonably cold and sunny weather, the amazing snow-making crews were able to get the season off to an early start.
When visiting the North Shore mountains you can experience virtually all the outdoor activities you expect to find at major destination resorts. Skiing, boarding, Nordic skiing, snowshoeing, outdoor skating, and even winter zip-lining.
Each of the three local mountain offer a variety of trails for skiing, boarding and snowshoeing for all skill levels, plus rental equipment, lessons, day and night skiing and snowshoe trails, and of course incredible views overlooking the city and ocean. And that’s just the start.
Of course there is après ski at each of the mountains that offer a range of live entertainment, snowshoe fondues, outdoor firepits, casual and fine dining, and congenial pubs that feature local craft beers.
See you on the slopes!
