Best places in Vancouver to play in the snow over the holidays!

Although we have been getting a bit more snow this year, it usually doesn’t last very long. Not all hope is lost for a snowy escape with the family this holiday season, though. Grease up those magic carpets and head out for some snow-packed adventures just outside of the city.


Peak of Christmas on Grouse Mountain

In addition to its traditional mountaintop activities, Grouse offers a Santa experience like no other – reindeer included. Mingle with Santa and his pals Dancer and Vixen amongst a snowy backdrop at Grouse Mountain’s Peak of Christmas event right through until January 2. Sleigh rides, twinkling lights, and if that’s not enticing enough, there’s also a Gingerbread Village.

Trails at Mount Seymour Provincial Park

Save some money by opting for a snowy trek on the trails in Mount Seymour Provincial Park. It’s free and perfect for first-time snow angels. The Dog Mountain Trail has fairly packed snow and a few bumps along the way for a short carpet ride or two. Access through the Mount Seymour Main Trail.

Snow Tube Park on Cypress Mountain 

A winter playground for all ages. Kids can zip down Cypress’ 100-metre tube chutes National Lampoon-style and rest their little legs with a tube-tow back to the top. Great for ages six and up. For those too little to tube, head to the bring-your-own sled area for just $12.

Sea to Sky Gondola near Squamish

Take the family for a ride on the Sea to Sky Gondola for incredible winter wonderland views and a little snowshoeing. Schedule your trip in December and enjoy special holiday events like Pancakes and Pictures with Santa, and a Christmas Forest Walk down their holiday trail (stroller-friendly). Children five an under ride the Gondola free, and you can save a few bucks by purchasing your tickets online.
