Vancouver: Where Mountains Meet the Beach

With a landscape of snow-capped peaks, lush forests and the sparkling Pacific Ocean, it’s no surprise that Vancouver is consistently voted one of the world’s most liveable cities. The compact, walkable downtown core reflects the region’s multiculturalism and vibrancy, meaning that visitors find themselves surrounded by locals...

As one of the world’s premiere city destinations, much is made of Vancouver’s beauty, but this place is about more than just a photo-op – it’s all about the lifestyle. Here, the snow stays up on the mountains and mild daytime temperatures in the city (around 7°C) mean that visiting iconic spots such as Stanley Park, strolling colorful local neighborhoods and even cycling the seawall are all still possible during winter.

Vancouver’s Cypress and Grouse mountains are visible from just about anywhere downtown, and skiers and non-skiers alike will love the quick commute: just 20 minutes! Grouse Mountain is closest to downtown and presents a myriad of options for all of the family: downhill skiing and boarding, snowshoeing tours, magic carpet rides, ziplining over alpine forest, and skating on an outdoor rink...


While Vancouver enjoys a mild climate, it benefits from easy access to local ski & mountain activities (the snow stays on the mountains, not in the city). The local ski season typically runs from the end of November to late March, with Grouse Mountain being only 20 minutes from downtown & offering fabulous day & night skiing.
