Vancouver’s snow-capped mountains are what define the city. It features a bunch of amazing ski resorts close to Downtown, including Cypress, Grouse, and Seymour. World-famous Whistler Blackcomb is less than two hours drive away, and there are a number of summits, glacier lakes, and beautiful views everywhere close by.
Warm Summer, Snowy Winter
The nice thing about Vancouver is they have consistent seasons. Summer averages temperatures in the high 20s (°C), and the winters are rainy however when there is rain in the city, there is snow up in the mountains.
The Sea Wall
Vancouver is home to a 28km long seawall that was constructed over a century ago. It’s the world’s largest uninterrupted ocean-side path and you can walk, run or ride on it.
Everything about Vancouver screams positive energy. It’s the type of thing you can’t really understand until you’ve been there, but from the wildlife to the people, diversity brings this back to nature city to life.
You Can Walk Everywhere

Stanley Park, voted many times as the best park in the world is one of Vancouver’s greatest assets. It’s perfect for hiking, cycling, wildlife spotting, running and getting back to nature.
Vancouver features some amazing beaches and watching the sunset over the ocean is breathtaking. Often you can see an orca pod or whales swimming by, and although the water temperatures only get to 17 °C it’s quite nice for a quick dip in summer when the air temperatures are higher.
