Shred the decade away with some skiing!

Whether you’re a seasoned pro or looking to learn how to ski or snowboard, there are multiple options in Vancouver available to you. Mount Seymour is one resort that’s located 20 minutes away from Holiday Inn North Vancouver - close to Vancouver’s core and a much shorter drive than to Whistler Moutain. The ski area is comprised of 80 hectares of terrain and includes 40 hectares that are lit especially for night skiing (yes there’s a night-only pass!). There are beginner slopes available and more challenging trails for advanced skiers and snowboarders. Mount Seymour is also Vancouver’s only family-owned and operated ski resort! Start the new year by going down the slopes!

3ski: A smaller season pass

Not in Vancouver for long? Have no fear - Mount Seymour offers a “3ski” package that allows visitors to ski or ride three times (with or without rentals) for $79. If you are looking to squeeze in some exciting activities on the slopes while passing through the city, this limited pass will fit the bill. Purchase a pass online before heading up the mountain. A short trip to Vancouver shouldn't mean you should miss out on snow-powder fun!

Mount Seymour Family First Night New Year’s Eve Party 

The longest-running family-friendly New Year’s event is the place to be for young families with early bedtimes. The event runs from 5:30 to 8:30 pm and costs $30 for admission. There will be so much to do, from laser tobogganing, snowshoeing, snacking on s’mores, taking in family-friendly entertainment, doing arts and crafts, and viewing a spectacular fireworks display! A pro-tip for first-time visitors: take advantage of the free shuttle service from the Parkgate Community Centre in North Vancouver, especially if your car is not equipped with snow tires. Tickets for this event will sell out quickly, so purchase in advance to avoid missing out! 

Whether you’re shredding the slopes or learning how to ski for your new year's resolution, Holiday Inn and Suites in North Vancouver is the perfect home base. We are located right at the foothills of Mount Seymour, maximizing your time on the slopes rather than commuting long distances. We're also 20 minutes away from downtown Vancouver, major tourist attractions and great entertainment venues. The holidays can get busy, book your stay today to secure your plans!
