North Vancouver, B.C.
Located in a Mt Seymour Provincial Park, the resort’s proximity to the ocean, eastern aspect and elevation, provide an average annual snowfall of over 10 metres.
The area’s 80 hectares of terrain, 40 of those lit for night skiing, feature both gentle slopes for beginners and Seymour’s storied, naturally-contoured slopes, tree runs and brimming gullies. Seymour has a raw feel that attracts ex-pat Whistler pros and North Shore locals alike.
Seymour is the last of the Canadian family-owned and operated resorts on the Shore. Since 1984, the Wood family has pushed Seymour’s family-centric agenda. Staying true to course this year, operations dove deep, focusing on shrinking the resort’s beginner parks (but not taking away from its advanced ones). Seymour has created one of the best progression-based, family-focused resorts in the area. Expect better-suited terrain for the little ones, and the same world-class experience for the rest.
