Skiers at Cypress mountain enjoy the view over Vancouver.

Winning tip: Vancouver, Canada

Cypress Mountain is only a 30-minute car trip from downtown Vancouver and offers an amazing variety of groomed runs, moguls and backcountry options. It’s as good a place to learn as it is to push your limits. One of the best things about the mountain is its proximity to the city. Head up in the evening for some jaw-dropping night skiing with the city lights below. There’s plenty of great après-ski in the lovely lodge bars and you have the benefit of being able to stay in Vancouver itself, not in an expensive resort. It’s also a fantastic day out for families, offering tubing, sledging and other snowy activities. Cypress also has a Nordic Area dedicated to cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, again offering incredible views of the vast mountain ranges north of Vancouver. This a perfect option for those seeking the comforts of a cosmopolitan city broken up by some alpine adventure.
