Winter Parking

Located within the beautiful Mount Seymour Provincial Park, Mt. Seymour Resorts Ltd. operates a Controlled Recreation Area (CRA) comprising of the Mt Seymour ski area and parking lots. The CRA occupies 81 of 3,500 hectares of park land (approximately 2%).

As both the Provincial Park and the Resort continue to experience exponential growth with winter enthusiasts, Mt Seymour continues to work with BC Parks to find solutions to the resulting parking shortage seen by all visitors.

The following Parking Designations have been agreed upon and are implemented throughout the winter operating season with peak periods during weekends and holidays from December to February.

On occasion when the parking lots are nearing capacity, Mt Seymour will set up a traffic stop starting at the 3.5 km mark on Mt Seymour road. The stop is usually short with vehicles being released at regular intervals. The stop is implemented to ease congestion within the parking lots and to efficiently manage the flow of traffic in and out of the park.

To assist BC Parks and their visitors, Mt. Seymour Resorts Ltd. has created and maintains a groomed pathway on the west side of the road from Parking Lot 1 to the First Lake/Dog Mountain trailhead. This wide pathway allows backcountry users to safely access the backcountry trails.

NEW - An additional entrance to the Dog Mountain Trail is available at the bottom of Upper Parking Lot 5, just across from the entrance to Parking Lot 2 (Enquist Lodge)!


Mt. Seymour Resorts Ltd also offers a shuttle bus service from Rupert Skytrain Station in East Vancouver and Parkgate Community Centre at the bottom of the mountain. The shuttle bus is a great way to avoid parking congestion during peak periods.
