A family park that you can either pay the cheapest rates to ski in the lower mainland or toboggan for free! Rent anything from snow shoes to snow boards and take lesson. Group lessons are very reasonable and you get great instructors and smaller classse.

My first excursion for this trip to Vancouver. It was beautiful to take in the environment of BC. We went for a 9km ride along a nicely made path. The only issue is that I don't think there is public transport to this spot, so you'd need a car.

Part of the trail is fairly challenging but once up to the top the view is definitely worth the hike! Prepare enough water, quick snack for on the way

My son and I rode out from Vancouver and up the road at Mount Seymour. The ride through North Vancouver was okay but not particularly scenic or bicycle friendly. The ride up the mountain was challenging but beautiful. It is a 3000 foot climb without a break. The road itself is in good condition which is important since the ride... More

Took a hike on Mt Seymour- amazing! Walking through the clouds, you feel like you are alone in the wilderness, my memories are so vivid. Would definitely return and spend more time if possible. Didn't go to the very top but so many beautiful stops, ponds along the way. Had some friends go to the top and said it was... More

Great escape into the wild so close to the city. Great for walks or hiking. Skiing not so great there are better local mountains

As a kid it was close enough to ski on my lunch hours, a an adult it was a full day of fun. Nice runs and easily accessible - no waiting for gondolas to take you up the hill - just drive!
