Skiing and Snowboarding
Even though Vancouver has a mild climate and snow seldom falls in the city, our students enjoy some of the best downhill and cross country ski facilities in North America. Step out your back door and gaze at the twinkling lights of Grouse Mountain, Cypress Bowl and Mount Seymour. Ski hills are so close you can almost reach out and touch them!
The schedule for Ski/Snowboard Program is subject to change due to the volume of students attending and weather conditions. Please check with the Canadian International Sports Academy to confirm the schedule closer to the time.
