Big Mountains

Vancouver BC enjoys easy access to some of the best downhill and cross-country ski facilities in North America. Grouse Mountain is the closest mountain to downtown Vancouver, being only 20 minutes away.

You can be sailing below, then take the iconic Grouse Mountain Super Skyride from the base (North America’s largest aerial tramway), which whisks you 3,700 feet above sea level.

Just two hours north are the internationally renowned ski mountains Whistler and Blackcomb. Being a top ranked destination ski resort it draws skiers from all over the world and rewards them with its long runs, spectacular scenery and a mild winter climate.
