MEC Snowfest North
Vancouver is an urban celebration of snow sports
and the winter environment in beautiful British Columbia.
Snowfest is a free event for all ages offering informative
clinics and workshops, the latest gear from the best brands,
a kid’s area, and is home to our legendary Snow Swap!
