Ski slopes and fresh powder are never far away in British Columbia. Take the North Shore, for example. These close-to-Downtown mountains put three ski hills within a 40-minute drive of the city's major hotels and attractions.
The location is perfect for couples wanting a little alone time on the slopes, but also to be close to the city. Right now (and through the end of March), you can snag a great hotel and skiing deal in North Vancouver. The package includes a room at the Pinnacle Hotel at the Pier and two adult lift tickets to Grouse Mountain.
From the hotel, it's an easy drive or bus trip to Grouse Mountain. And, come evening, you can walk to the SeaBus for a ferry ride to Downtown theaters, restaurants, and bars.
