Ideas for BC Family Day

Here are some of our top picks for this Family Day long weekend!

Skating & Tobogganing

There is a free skate at Jim Lind Arena on February 16th sponsored by the BCGEU.  Parent & Tot is at 1:30-2:30pm and the Family Skate is from 2:45-4:00pm. 2760 Cameron Rd

Looking to toboggan? The most popular place for families is the hill at Hudson Road Elementary School and if there is no snow there, head out Glenrosa Rd past Telemark. There is a toboggan hill there as well and often someone has a bonfire going.

Hit the Trails

Our trails are magical when the snow hits them. Ski, snowshoe, ride or walk these trails or take your phone and capture the snow laden trees!
