Where to see snow in Vancouver

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.
Mount Seymour Road, North Vancouver
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.
