Vancouver is one of the world’s few major cities that doubles as a true winter sport mecca.

Vancouver’s three ski mountains – Cypress, Grouse and Seymour – are part of the North Shore mountains, which are visible from the downtown and are approximately a 30-minute drive away. The city hosted the world's best skiers and snowboarders during the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games. 

Each of the ski hills offers something different, but all three share a few key perks: great value, ample night-skiing/boarding opportunities, and tremendous views of the city below. Combine these mountains with Vancouver’s famous arts, entertainment and dining scenes, and it’s easy to see why this is a great city for winter activities.

Cypress, Vancouver’s Olympic Freestyle Venue

With more than 50 runs and 243ha/600ac of skiable terrain, it’s no surprise that Cypress Mountain is a favourite with locals and visitors alike. Cypress is the largest of Vancouver’s local ski hills, and the only one that served as an official venue for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games.
