Nestled among snowy mountains and spectacular Vancouver views, Mt. Seymour Resorts trains and challenges snow trekkers with its bountiful descents, trails, and topography. The resort sequesters 10 kilometres of thoroughly marked forested trails exclusively for snowshoers, and provides an extensive selection of Tubbs, Atlas, or MSR gear for rental. Partakers can navigate beginning crests, undertake hill training and sprints on various loops, or bask in stunning scenery that includes two lakes and old-growth forests replete with animal tracks, bird calls, and local yetis constructing half-pipes in their backyards.
Mt. Seymour’s lifts escort riders to slopes geared toward beginning skiers and snowboarders; terrain parks replete with jumps, jibs, and shark teeth whittled into ramps treat more advanced partakers to airborne excursions. Mt. Seymour Resorts also keeps patrons abreast of the latest snow and avalanche conditions with frequently updated reports.
Mt. Seymour Resorts
When it comes to winter sports, Mt. Seymour doesn’t discriminate. Skiers can speed down slopes that see more than 1,000cm of snow in an average year, then zip back to the top of the runs on a quad chair lift that reduces travel time from 12 minutes to 4 minutes. Elsewhere, Seymour Park dares snowboarders to tackle the 30 trick features of its well-lit terrain. Soar across two jumps and grind on a 30' single rail.
