The gondola ride up to the base of the resort is a nice way to start. It is so close to Vancouver. A huge ski area it is not. But the runs are reasonable. The biggest reason to experience this place at least once is the view. You feel like you are descending into the city of Vancouver. What a view. And make sure to do it at night as well. An experience not to be missed. Perhaps tie it in with golfing in the morning.
