While many people associate spring break with surfing and sunning on the beach, others prefer a winter wonderland. If you want crisp weather, spectacular natural views and a wide variety of activities, look no further than British Columbia. The entire province is full of fun things to do during March break. Skiing is obviously the first thing you think about for your spring break vacation in British Columbia.
Ski season is in full effect until early April so try out the North Shore slopes while you are there. The Whistler-Blackcomb site will be the location of the 2010 Winter Olympics. You can catch a preview by staying in Cypress, the largest of the North Shore ski resorts. Cypress Mountain is full of activities for visitors of all ages. In addition to downhill skiing, there is a cross-country area, snow tubing and other activities during the evening.
Grouse Mountain is another of the North Shore slopes. This ski resort has 20 runs and a terrain park. You can take a gondola ride up to the top of the hill without having to ski back down. Seymour Mountain makes the third of the slopes. It has a variety of winter sports like tubing, tobogganing and dog sledding.
