ARRIVING BY CAR
BC Parks trails are open to the public for the Summer, no permit required. Parking is free and available on a first come first served basis. Please be mindful of the lift construction work taking place off the main P4 parking lot. LODGE CHAIRLIFT UPGRADE.
The gatehouse at the entrance to Mount Seymour Provincial Park, at the bottom of the hill, is not in operation May-October, therefore the park is accessible at any time.
Overnight parking permitted in parking lots P1 or P2. The gate above P2 is closed dusk-dawn, but the trails are still accessible on foot. A notice on the dash of your vehicle must be visible stating the owner's name and contact number, emergency contact number, destination & number of hikers/campers, and your expected return date/time. No overnight camping in vehicles
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.
Weekend & Holiday Parking (during Winter operation only)
All Mt Seymour guests and season pass holders will need to reserve an 'Arriving by car' area pass, activity, or reservation if they intend to drive to the resort on weekends & holidays.
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 reserve parking 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.
