Snowshoeing (Canadian Tourism Commission photo)
A number of ski areas near Vancouver offer trails and guided tours for snowshoers. Trek on pristine trails at Cypress Mountain or explore the developed snowshoe parks at Grouse Mountain and Mount Seymour.
All three resorts are a short drive from Vancouver and have snowshoe rentals available. For a special treat, book a guided evening snowshoe fondue tour. Trails weave through alpine forests, past frozen lakes, and to high points where snowshoers can enjoy a view of the city and the water. Snowshoe equipment rentals are available at many of the larger snowshoe areas; many outdoor stores also have rentals.
There are also snowshoeing trails in nearby Whistler and the surrounding Vancouver, Coast and Mountains region.
