Area Guides

Vancouver is a winter sports mecca. Ironically, it rarely gets snow. The mountains surrounding the city such as Seymour, Hollyburn and Grouse all have great snowboarding, nordic skiing and snow shoeing. You can ski glaciers just up the coast at Whistler or Garibaldi Provincial Park. Not far from the city you'll also find Manning and Golden Ears provincial parks with excellent backcountry and XC ski areas.

Vancouver Region / City of Vancouver

Vancouver is the heart of this region. Nestled into lowlands of the Fraser Delta it is in sharp contrast to its surroundings. One of the worlds most beautiful city, it is also the outdoor capital of the world (there, I've said it!), several lifetimes would be expended pursuing the outdoor possibilities the region presents.

 
Within the city limits or no more than an hour or two away are world class locations for sea kayaking, white water, mountian biking, ski touring, snow boarding, backpacking and more. Why else would the worlds greatest adventure race, The Eco-Challenge, choose this venue?

    If you're idea of hosteling is pulling up a piece of the rug, in an urban fallout shelter, with a dozen strangers - think again. Hostels range from a place to unroll your sleeping bag to somthing approaching resort like acommodations, in beautiful mountain settings where you can have your own private room. Prices are still unbeatable and the company is usually interested and interesting world travelers. If you're a boarder or skier take note, there are hostels in most of the major resort areas.
