Mount Seymour is a mountain located in Mount Seymour Provincial Park in the District of North Vancouver. It is a part of the North Shore Mountains, rising to the north from the shores of Burrard Inlet and Indian Arm to a summit of 1,449 m (4,754 ft) above the Indian River and Deep Cove neighbourhoods. Mount Seymour is most commonly identified for its ski area of the same name, and as a popular hiking and mountain biking area. It is named in honour of Frederick Seymour, second governor of the Colony of British Columbia. The Mount Seymour ski area has four lifts, the Mystery Peak, Brockton, and Lodge double chairlifts, and the Goldie Lake Ropetow. A fourth double chairlift, the Ridge Chair was destroyed in a windstorm in 1998, and is currently still standing, though gradually rotting away. Another beginner lift, the Enquist Ropetow was removed in the early 1990s. The area offers 330 m (1,083 ft) of vertical drop and about 1,000 cm (394 in) of annual snowfall. Skiing and snowboarding are available on 39 marked trails and many unmarked routes. The longest trail is 1.6 km (1 mi) long and 18 of the trails have night lighting. Five additional terrain parks exist for freestyle activities. Terrain has also been developed for snowtubing and tobogganing. Guided and unguided snowshoeing takes place on a separate 10 km (6 mi) network of maintained trails. Backcountry access for snowshoeing and camping is permitted. http://www.mountseymour.com Parkgate Park A big, wide open Park with two ball diamonds, a soccer field, a kids play area and a trail for cyclists, walkers and runners.
