Vancouver is the gateway to some of the best ski resorts in North America. Three local mountains, Grouse, Seymour, and Cypress, are located within mere minutes from downtown Vancouver, while the world-renowned Whistler Blackcomb Resort is a one-and-a-half-hour drive north on the Sea-to-Sky Highway. Big White, located in B.C.’s scenic southern interior, is renowned for its light, dry snow and wide, expansive terrain. All mountains offer beginners and experts alike world-class skiing and snowboarding in winter wonderland settings. Vancouver is one of the few places in the world where you can play a round of golf in the morning and hit the slopes in the afternoon — all in one day!
