It rarely snows heavily in Vancouver, if at all, so with the recent snowfall in Vancouver it got me thinking: What on earth do you do when it snows in Vancouver? Unless you’re heading up to the mountains, coming up with snow-appropriate activities in Vancouver can be a head-scratcher. Rain, I’m accustomed to and can work well with; snow is a mystery. Luckily, the snow lasted a few days longer than normal for Vancouver (aka a few days in total), giving me ample time to come up with some snow-related ideas. Here are five things to do in Vancouver when it snows:
1. Take a walk. You know the snow won’t last long, so enjoy it while you can! Take in the snow’s calm beauty with a walk in the park or woods. Walk along the trails in Stanley Park, Pacific Spirit Park, and Everett Crowley Park, or stroll through Queen Elizabeth Park and VanDusen Botanical Garden for snow-covered nature at its finest. The snow-covered trees and trails will almost make you feel like you’re in the wild.
