The Mountain

Getting Here

winter tire sign

ARRIVING BY CAR

WINTER

All vehicles accessing Mt Seymour between Oct 1 - Mar 31 must be equipped with winter tires in good condition, showing either the peaked mountain/snowflake symbol or M+S. 

The road to Mt Seymour is a mountain highway plowed and sanded during winter. Be aware that weather and road surface conditions change quickly.

During extreme winter conditions, all-wheel-drive vehicles with the peaked mountain/snowflake symbol tires are required. These requirements are for your safety and other road users.

If your vehicle is not suitable and without appropriate tires for the conditions, Mt Seymour’s Traffic Attendants reserve the right to deny access. We recommend using our shuttle bus service.

Please note: We have had multiple instances of Uber drivers not accepting pickups from the Mt Seymour Ski Area. Please ensure you have a ride up and down the mountain.

Weekend & Holiday Parking (during Winter operation only)

All Mt Seymour guests and season pass holders intending to drive to the ski area will need to select 'Arriving by car' when purchasing/reserving an activity if they intend to drive to the resort on weekends & holidays. Other guests traveling in the same vehicle do not need to do this.

Your vehicle will be turned away if you do not have an 'Arriving by car' area pass or reservation. 'Arriving by bus' reservations will not be accepted at the entrance to the parking lots.

Weekday Parking (during Winter operation only)

Season pass holders do not need to select the parking option on weekdays as parking is on a first come first served basis.

Area pass and activity holders will have the option to choose between 'Arriving by car' or 'Arriving by bus' when purchasing.

ARRIVING BY BUS

Keep cars off the road, gas money in your pocket, and the air a little cleaner...

Mt Seymour operates a regular return-journey shuttle bus service during the winter months from Parkgate Community Centre in North Vancouver, and opposite the Rupert Skytrain Station in East Vancouver.
