As February rolls around it’s time to celebrate winter on the Shore! The mountains are calling and with the ski resorts in full swing, it’s never been easier to head for the hills and frolic in the snow!

PLAY

We love winter so much on Vancouver’s North Shore that Grouse Mountain has dedicated an entire weekend to it.

Head to Grouse on February 6 & 7 to celebrate ‘24 Hours of Winter’. The Peak of Vancouver will be open on February 6 & 7 to celebrate “24 Hours of Winter” with 24 nonstop hours of winter fun! From 8:30am on Saturday, February 6 to 10:00pm on Sunday, February 7, the entire resort will be open for visitors to enjoy fun winter activities. Enjoy all day and night skiing and snowboarding, and be sure to check out the snowshoeing, ice skating and sliding zone. There will be special events all weekend as well, from the Dance Skate Party and Junior Pond Hockey Tournament to an epic Scavenger Hunt and a spectacular torch parade.

It’s cold out there … time to head indoors and heat things up with a little SALSA DANCING at the Historic Pipe Shop! Enjoy drop-in Salsa dancing every Wednesday evening from 7-10pm. Learn some new moves in the beautiful location. No experience (or partner) is necessary and everyone is welcome!

Don’t miss the 19th annual Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival. From February 10 – 20, this popular festival takes place at 4 Metro Vancouver locations, including Centennial Theatre in North Vancouver. Enjoy 6 nights of mind-blowing mountain adventure films and inspiring stories from around the world. Click here for more information about the events taking place at Centennial Theatre.

EXPLORE

Did you know that the drinking water for over 2.5 million Vancouver area residents is collected and stored in the Seymour Valley? Learn more about the local water supply in a fun and active way on a Winter Watershed Snowshoe Tour. Join Metro Vancouver staff on a guided snowshoe tour. During this moderately strenuous hike, learn about the plants and animals that call the area home and warm up afterwards with a well-earned cup of hot cocoa. Tours run Thursdays, 6-9:30pm from February to March and pre-registration is required.

CELEBRATE

Family Day is February 8 and to celebrate there are all sorts of fun family activities and events planned on Vancouver’s North Shore! From a Disney-inspired day at Lonsdale Quay to a weekend of adventure and exploration at Capilano Suspension Bridge (they have a sweet deal on for annual family passes as well), there’s something happening for every family! North Vancouver Recreation and West Vancouver Recreation both have fun-filled family days planned with free activities and entertainment!
