  • Winter in B.C. is beautiful, and more people than ever are experiencing its beauty through hiking, snowshoeing and skiing in provincial park

    To address the growing surge of people visiting Mount Seymour Provincial Park during the winter, a free day-use pass pilot program is being implemented to provide a more enjoyable visitor experience.

    “Winter is the busiest season for Mount Seymour Park, especially during the holiday break, with downhill skiers and park visitors sharing limited parking,” said George Heyman, Minister of Environment and Climate Change Strategy. “We encourage people to stay active and safe this winter, and plan their visit to Mount Seymour Park in advance so they can enjoy a safe and less crowded experience.”

    Beginning Dec. 15, 2021, people will be required to have a free pass to access the park between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m.
    So people can plan ahead, morning or afternoon passes will be available online at 7 a.m. (Pacific time), two days prior to arrival, at bcparks.ca.

    Since cellphone service may be unavailable, visitors will need to print or download a copy of the pass on their mobile device before arriving at the park.

    As part of the winter day-use pass pilot program, BC Parks is partnering with the BC Parks Foundation’s Discover Parks Program to have ambassadors welcome people to Mount Seymour and provide education about safe and responsible recreation.

    BC Parks will evaluate the third phase of the day-use pass pilot program to inform future decisions and approaches for day passes in provincial parks.
    To book a free winter day-use pass, visit: bcparks.ca (discovercamping.ca)
