The mountain is located on the east end of the North Shore Mountains, which rise from the Burrard Inlet of British Columbia. When the skies are clear, views from Mt Seymour are stunning. You can see eastward to the Fraser Valley, south to the lower mainland including the city of Vancouver and as far away as the Gulf Islands. Mt Seymour Ski Area is truly a multi-recreational area where family and friends can escape the city and venture into the mountains; located only 30 minutes from downtown Vancouver; Mt Seymour is like having a winter playground in your backyard.
