Ladies ski for $10 at Mount Seymour in Vancouver, every Monday night

The 2016 ski season is shaping up to be one to remember in Vancouver, with great snowfall on the local mountains. Now, there’s a way to enjoy all the snow on the cheap, and support a great cause.

Every Monday night from Jan. 25-March 28, ladies can ski for a donation of just $10 at Mount Seymour in North Vancouver as part of the Shred for a Cause event. The yearly tradition, now in its ninth year, has raised more than $150,000 for charity … and contributed to countless memorable nights on the slopes.

This year, Mount Seymour has upped the price of admission for ladies ever so slightly, from a minimum donation of $5 to $10, half of which goes to charity. Still, that’s an absolute steal considering that guys have to pay the full evening lift ticket price of $31. Just pay at guest services (no special vouchers needed this year) and enjoy unlimited night skiing from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Continue reading:
