Matador Trips has released their Top 15 Adventure Towns list and guess what? Vancouver is on the list.
Vancouver’s North Shore invented freeride mountain biking. Huge drops. Crazy, winding wood bridges and planks. Sick jumps. This is the North Shore’s bread and butter.
Haven’t gotten enough? Head two hours north to Whistler and drop into backcountry via helicopter and bike your way out.
When the snow begins to fall, Vancouver offers access to many ski resorts including Cypress Mountain, Grouse Mountain, Mt. Seymour, just minutes from downtown, and Whistler, North America’s largest resort, to the north.
