Burnaby Mountain Park

One of the most exciting and busiest hills, Burnaby Mountain Park is not for the faint of heart. A long-time favourite for many generations, with parking near Horizons restaurant. Steep slopes, rocks and trees make this option best-suited for helmet-wearing adventure seekers. (Note: Burnaby Parks does not encourage tobogganing. Stay safe out there!)

Coquitlam Crunch

Situated along the hydro lines of the Coquitlam Crunch, this wide-open slope is a popular sledding destination for a reason! It’s crazy fun! If you don’t mind sharing the slope with a crowd, it’s worth checking out. Just watch out for jumps and hard-packed icy snow on busy days.

Queen Elizabeth Park

Can’t go wrong with QE! Centrally located in Mount Pleasant with lots of options ranging from gentle slopes for little ones to steep runs for thrill-seekers! Parking can be a challenge on snowy days, so be prepared to walk.

China Creek North Park

Taking transit? The big hill on the west side of China Creek North Park is awesome for kids! Just a short walk from the VCC-Clark Skytrain Station.

West Point Grey Park, Point Grey

Also known as Trimble Park, this slope near Jericho will take your breath away. With big trees and blackberry bushes awaiting at the bottom, it’s a popular choice for older kids.

Diefenbaker Park, Delta

A long, wide-open hill with lots of run out space at the bottom, this park is one of the best options for fun and safety. Totally family-friendly, with lots of accessible parking. Kids of all ages will love riding a crazy carpet or snow-racer down this smooth slope!
