While it rarely snows in the city, Vancouver’s mountains are a great place to go sledding. Here are our picks for the best places to go sledding, tobogganing, and snow-tubing near Vancouver in winter 2023/24.


Sledding and Snow-Tubing Tips

Book in Advance Or Go at Non-Peak Times: Some locations require advance booking. (See below for details.)

Dress for the Weather: Layer up with lots of warm clothes and good boots. But skip the scarves and wear a neck gaiter instead. Scarves can get caught on things!

Safety First: Stay safe by following all rules at groomed tube parks. At city parks, steer clear of trees, rocks, and jumps. Consider wearing a ski or hockey helmet.
