Backcountry Access & Winter Hiking on Mount Seymour

Day-use pass reservations are currently not required for Mt Seymour's upper mountain trails including the Seymour Main Trail, Dog Mountain Trail, and Perimeter Trail. More information can be found on the BC Parks website.

Whatever you like to do in the mountains, is the perfect place to start out on your backcountry safety journey, prepare for taking an Avalanche Canada Training course, or just refresh your knowledge.

Mt Seymour Resorts Ltd. is located within the boundary of the beautiful Mount Seymour Provincial Park which boasts many popular and fantastic trails, view points, and backcountry camping. 

In winter all trails located within the Provincial Park and outside of the Mt Seymour Ski Area, are maintained and operated either by Sea to Sky Parks (on behalf of BC Parks) or Metro Vancouver.

In the winter, some trails such as the Goldie Lake, Flower Lake and Mystery Lake trails, fall under the Controlled Recreation Area maintained by Mt Seymour Resorts Ltd. and require the purchase of a valid Area Pass to access.
