I used to ski here many moons ago but haven't been in ages. I took up snowshoeing this winter and have been up twice in the last three weeks. Loved every minute of it. While they have extensive and easy paid trails here, I have explored the free public trails instead. They are far more enjoyable and offer more beauty... More

My first time snow shoeing at Seymour. The trails in the Provincial Park are free and well marked. I went to Dog Mountain, which was well suited to a family with young children. Our 9 year old managed with some encouragement and distraction. Tons of snow this year gives an opportunity to test your snow shoes in deep snow conditions.... More

Weather can be too warm for good skiing or snowshoeing so pick your day to go after checking the weather report. If it has freshly snowed or its actively snowing, that area is reached by shuttle bus from the North Shore, or driving up, which can only be done with winter tires or a 4 X 4 or tire chains....

This is a natural beauty all year long. In the winter, its the best family ski resort going with that real family feel, not big business. In the remaining three seasons there is wonderful hiking for miles. Get up early and climb to first or second peak for a spectacular sunrise.

If you want a challenging road bike ride - ascend this mountain of 1040 m in 12.5 km (roughly 3300 ft in 9 miles) view obscured by clouds and much colder to dress warmly before you scream back down the mountain

Been taking visitors here for 45 years! I don't let them see the view until getting to the top. . . Parking, and walking them back to a view-point. . . The first word is always: WOW. . . obviously BEST on a clear day . . . if the clouds are low. . . (in Vancouver?) better to save... More

We started hiking Dog Mountain but realized it would be a muddy, slippery 5km round trip hike so we turned back under the 1km mark and decided to hike towards the top of Mount Seymour. Trail was quite rocky with patches of slippery icy snow higher up. Lots of narrow paths so you ended up bottle necked and waiting your... More

On a lovely sunny Saturday afternoon we headed up Mt Seymour, a lovely drive in itself. Parking at the ski lodge we walked to First Lake and then on up Dog Mointain to spectacular views of Vancouver. The hike was a little slippery with packed snow but we managed okay in running shoes.

Yes I've done the Grouse Grind (boring). BLT on Cypress. Yes I've been all over the North Shore mountains...hiking, biking, snow shoeing. The best and cheapest bang for your buck (pun intended) I believe is Mount Seymour. It offers all levels of challenge, depending on time. If you want a relatively easy hike with a spectacular view/payoff...you have the Dog.... More

Lived in the Deep Cove area for several months and never tired of exploring Mt Seymour Mountain. The trail to Elsay lake is great and is great for swim and relax in. Also the hike to First peak is another great hike and offers spectacular views of Downtown Vancouver and the surrounding areas. It is well marked out and the... More
