Most of my time in Vancouver was spent in conference rooms, but on the last day I skipped out a bit early, took a cab to Grouse Mountain, rented gear and went skiing. I was dozing off in a conference room listening to a paper about about the archaeology of Puget Sound and 1 hour 15 minutes later I was on skiis with all of Vancouver spread out below.
It's common knowledge that one of the best ski areas in all of North America is just north of Vancouver at Whistler/Blackcomb, and I think skiiers pooh pooh all the other ski areas near Vancouver in comparison. Next time you are in Vancouver take the 20 minute cab ride and go skiing! Patrick
