Skiing and Snowboarding on the North Shore

Skiing and snowboarding is a popular winter and early spring activity in British Columbia. Burnaby may not have much snow in March, but there are lots of great ski mountains in the area.

Cypress Mountain, Grouse Mountain, and Mount Seymour are all located within an hour from Burnaby. You can often see the lights of the ski mountains at night if you look north.

You can head to any of these North Shore mountains to get a full day of skiing without all the travel.

Snowshoeing on Cypress Mountain

Skiing isn’t the only thing to do while you’re on the mountain. Experience a literal walk in a winter wonderland at Cypress Mountain’s ‘Lights to the Lodge’ snowshoeing adventure.

Follow an LED light-lit trail through the Old Growth Forest in a magical snowshoe trek to one of the most popular Cypress Mountain destinations, the Hollyburn Lodge.

Hike around Burnaby Mountain Conservation Area

When the spring weather arrives there is nothing quite like exploring the trails on Burnaby Mountain.

There are 26 popular trails ranging from an accessible 2.75km hike to a more challenging 11km trek. No matter what trail you choose, you’ll be treated to stunning views and natural beauty without having to leave Burnaby!

You can visit in the evening to watch the sunset and enjoy stunning views of the mountains, the inlet, and the city. Or go during the day and take a leisurely stroll or a bike ride on one of the many mountain trails.

Bike Routes & Urban Trails

Burnaby Mountain isn’t the only place you can go for a bike ride in the city. Burnaby has a great network of cycle-friendly paths and urban trails, many of which are paved and completely separate from motorized traffic, allowing you to peacefully and safely cycle.

The Deer Lake Parkway Urban Trail is one of the most popular trails for biking in Burnaby because it brings you through the tranquil and serene Deer Lake Park. But there are plenty of other routes to explore as well.
