Spring might be just around the corner, Vancouver, but it looks like winter is not quite done saying goodbye. We’ve got a full week of rain in the forecast, which has us double-guessing outdoor activities. But hey, we’re keeping a couple around just in case the mood changes!

Here are the 10 best things to do in Vancouver this week.

Lights to the Lodge

A little post-work fun never hurt anyone. This experience is a snowshoe light walk that will have you exploring Cypress Mountain’s nordic area, their historic Hollyburn Lodge, and more!

When: Open throughout the week
Where: 6000 Cypress Bowl Road, West Vancouver
Cost: $28.80+

Grouse Mountain

Rain in Vancouver usually means snow on the North Shore. This week we’re picking Grouse, which has got a wide range of runs and terrains for every skill level. Play hooky one day, or scoot over after work instead!

When: Open throughout the week
Where: 6400 Nancy Greene Way, North Vancouver
Cost: Varies

Shipyards Skate Plaza

The Skate Plaza has extended its season, and will now be open until the end of March! If you haven’t already checked it out, this could be a great week to do so.

When: Open throughout the week
Where: 125 Victory Ship Way, North Vancouver
Cost: Free to access

Luca Fogale

Why not enjoy a little bit of local talent this week! Luca Fogale hails from Burnaby, and is quickly getting recognized for his beautiful voice and songwriting capabilities.

When: Friday, March 4th
Where: 3123 W Broadway
Cost: $20+

Watch some short films

Ahead of the Oscars, the VIFF Centre is screening roundups of both the live-action and animated short films that got the nod this year. It’s a fun mix up from movie night in, if you ask us.

Where: 1181 Seymour Street
Cost: $15

Check out a new restaurant

Vancouver continues to see new and delicious restaurants on an almost weekly basis! If you’re thinking of trying something new, we’ve got options in mind.

Arts Club Theatre

Live theatre is back in Vancouver, and one of the best ways to experience it is at the Arts Club. They’re showing some fun stuff both in-person and online, but we’re focused on a live-action version of Kim’s Convenience.

Where: 2750 Granville Street
Cost: $35+

Bloedel Conservatory

We’re wrapping up this list with a couple of spots that manage to put a smile on our face, no matter the weather. First up is the Bloedel Conservatory, which offers an amazing array of tropical plants and birds to chill out with. You can’t look at a cool parrot and not feel better, it’s science.

When: Open throughout the week
Where: 4600 Cambie Street
Cost: $7.05

Museum of Anthropology

The exhibition Sankofa: African Routes, Canadian Roots focuses on contemporary artists from, you guessed it, African countries and Canada alike. It wraps up this March, so head over there if you’re intrigued!
