Today we bring you a new blog about winter sports!. A funny way to keep you and your family active during this cold season!
There are 13 major resorts in BC. So you have plenty options to choose from. Whistler Blackcomb is the Big Shot of BC ski resorts with two mountains but if you are currently living in Vancouver you may find Grouse Mountain or Cypress a closer option! All this resorts count with material and clothing rentals and also with classes for beginners, so there is no excuse to go and spend the day or the weekend up in the mountains!
2. Ice Skating
Lace up your skates at one of Vancouver's eight ice rinks, some which offer year-round skating and ice activities. Enjoy drop-in skating, hockey, and stick and puck sessions with family and friends.
They provide skate rentals and helmets and have friendly rink attendants who can answer all of your questions. Skating lessons, special seasonal events, skating birthday packages, and private rink rentals are also available at most of their rink facilities at affordable rates.
Hey hikers! you don't really have to stop hitting the trails in winter, you just need some snowshoes! There are quite few snowshoeing trails around Vancouver. All Grouse, Seymour and Cypress offer snowshoeing trails and rentals, and some of the trails allow dogs on leash!
Pro tip : rent your snowshoes downtown and bring them with you to the mountain, it'll be much cheaper.
4. Cross-Country Skiing
Cypress Mountain features 19 kilometres (12 miles) of groomed cross-country trails that wind through dense forest and boast awesome views of the city and ocean far below. Make sure to stop inside the historic 1926 Hollyburn Lodge to enjoy a hot chocolate and warm up by the fire.
