While winter is often a time when people stick close to home, it can actually be one of the best times to plan a getaway.

Can’t get enough of the snow? BC has a ton of it. Whether you want to strap on a pair of skis and point them down a mountain, experience the exhilaration of being pulled across the winter landscape by a team of sled dogs, or just cozy up by a crackling fireplace in a cabin in the woods, BC offers plenty of options.

Here are some getaway ideas to kickstart your planning.

Alternatively, do you live in a place where the snow is deep and the temperatures are frigid, and you’re yearning to play outdoors without the need for thermal underwear? Vancouver Island and Metro Vancouver offer some of the mildest climates in the country.

Explore some getaway ideas in BC’s milder southwest.
