FAQ's

What should I wear for snowshoeing?

Layers! Dressing in non-cotton (e.g. wool, fleece, polypropylene) light-weight layers with a waterproof jacket and snow/rain pants is the most ideal way to snowshoe comfortably. Don't forget your gloves, toque, warm non-cotton socks, and sturdy, water-resistant winter or hiking boots.

Does Mt Seymour rent boots for snowshoeing?

We have Neo over-boots for rent. They slip over your boots or shoes, reaching up to your shins and are ideal if you don't have water-repellent winter or hiking boots.

What should I bring?

Carrying the 10 essentials is always a good idea. We also recommend waterproof shoes and jacket.

  1. Extra food and water
  2. Navigational/communication devices
  3. Extra clothing
  4. First aid kit
  5. Flashlight
  6. Emergency blanket/shelter
  7. Fire-making kit
  8. Pocket knife
  9. Signaling device (i.e. whistle)
  10. Sun protection

Where are the snowshoe trails?

The Discovery Snowshoe Trails (Goldie Lake, Flower Lake) are run by the resort. The entrance is well-marked and located at the bottom of the Goldie Magic Carpet. The BC Parks/Metro Vancouver Trails (Dog Mountain, Mt Seymour Peak, First Pump) begin from the kiosk near the bottom of the Mystery Express Chair. Please keep in mind that snowshoers are not permitted on the designated ski and snowboard runs nor are they permitted to use the lifts. Check our Interactive Trail Maps page for a map of the Discovery Snowshoe Trails.

Does Mt Seymour have night snowshoeing or lit trails?

No, we do not. For the safety of our renters, we keep closing time close to sunset time throughout the season. The last rentals are allowed out 1-hour before closing. None of the trails are lit, but if you have your own equipment and want to use the BC Parks and Metro Vancouver Trail networks (Dog Mountain, First Peak, First Lake) after dark you can, but should be well prepared and experienced in night backcountry travel.

Where can I take the snowshoe rentals?

You can snowshoe in the Mt Seymour Discovery Snowshoe Trails or you can even bring them on the BC Park and Metro Vancouver trails.

Are dogs allowed on the snowshoe trails?

Yes! Dogs are welcome on all the trails, however, you must keep them on a leash and we ask that you please clean up after them! Dog poop resurfaces in giant disgusting blobs in the spring!

Please note: Dogs are NOT permitted on public tours such as the Discovery, Baby & Me, Chocolate Fondue, etc.

Should I use poles?

We only recommend poles for people with hip or knee injuries, or for added stability if they are carrying a baby or a very heavy pack, however, it is a personal preference. If you still wish to use poles, they are available, just let us know.
