So, you’ve probably heard about how beautiful the city of Vancouver is. Let me tell you, it is!
Vancouver is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. There is so much natural beauty here, from being right next to the Pacific Ocean to having the coastal mountains right outside your door. It’s no wonder everyone wants to live here.
If you love doing outdoor activities, you’re going to love Vancouver. You can go hiking on one of the hundreds of trails in and around the city, go bicycling around the Stanley Park Seawall, do ocean kayaking in English Bay, and go skiing at one of the local mountains. And the really crazy thing is, you can do all of this in one day! Of course, we do get pretty busy here with the MM program, so we usually try to keep it down to one activity at a time!
Today a few of us decided to go skiing at one of our favourite local ski mountains, Cypress Mountain. Located only 40 minutes away from UBC, it’s one of three local mountains (the others being Grouse and Seymour) that offer great runs and amazing views of the city. Lately though, we’ve had a warm spell of weather, so snow has been a bit hard to come by. Nonetheless, the mountains had enough snow to offer us some amazing runs and a great ski day with friends.
