North Vancouver’s Mount Seymour Ski Hill offers special deals on their Individual, Family and Value Season’s Passes each year starting in the spring.
Grouse Mountain is famous for its Y2Play Pass, and Cypress is famous for its Silver Extra, Silver and Gold Passes, all of which come out in the spring for a limited time. Although less well-known, Mt. Seymour has pass deals of its own.
Season’s Pass Ski Deals at Mt. Seymour in 2022
If you like skiing at Mount Seymour and plan to do a lot of it, the best deal is to get a season’s pass when they go on sale around March each year. The deals run from around March until September (or until passes sell out). Mount Seymour offers two types of season’s passes: Regular Individual/Family Passes and Value Passes.
In normal years, a season’s pass would allow you to ski for the remainder of the current year plus all of the following season. In 2022 that has changed to where new passholders have to purchase a Spring Pass add-on in order to ski from March until the end of the season.
There are many other perks to buying a Mount Seymour seasons pass as well. Some of those perks are listed below. Passes for the 2022/23 season go on sale March 9th.
(Note: Prices and other details are subject to change. Information listed below is as of the spring of 2022. Check the official Mount Seymour website for the most up-to-date information.)
Regular Individual/Family Passes
Regular Individual and Family season’s passes allow the user almost entirely unrestricted access to Mount Seymour for the duration of the ski season. Reservations are required, however, on weekends, holidays and school Pro-D days to allow the resort to manage the mountain’s capacity.
Mt. Seymour’s Regular Pass Benefits
The Regular Individual/Family Pass offers the most benefits. One of the most important features of the Regular Pass is that there are no blackout dates. Some days require reservations, but Regular passholders can ski any time.
Some of the benefits available to all season’s passholders (including both Individual/Family passes and Value passes) are free parking, a shuttle season’s pass, tobogganing, 20% off a Buddy Pass and 15% off rentals. Discounts at the Mt. Seymour retail store for apparel and servicing also apply.
Reciprocal mountain deals are usually a benefit of all season’s passes at Mount Seymour. Despite some COVID restrictions, there should still be a number on offer for 2022/23. See the Mount Seymour Reciprocal Mountain Deals page for more information.
Other perks that are only available with the Regular passes (not the Value passes) are free tubing, snowshoe trail access and snowshoe rentals.
Regular Pass Prices
Prices for Individual Season’s Passes in 2022/23 are listed below. These prices do not include the $5 charge for new passholders or any taxes and fees. If you buy passes in the early sales or if you are renewing a pass from the previous season, you can get discounts.

Mt. Seymour’s Value Passes
Value Passes at Mount Seymour are an extra-discounted season’s pass option. They allow passholders unrestricted mountain access from Mondays to Fridays (excluding holidays and Pro-D days if they fall during those days).
Value Pass Benefits
Many of the same benefits that Individual/Family Pass holders get also apply to Value Passes. Benefits include a shuttle season’s pass, free tobogganing and discounts on rentals, apparel and servicing. Reciprocal Mountain Deals are also included in the Value Pass.
One drawback of the Value Pass is the blackout period on weekends and holidays until 4:30 pm. The holiday period at Mount Seymour is from December 17th, 2022, to January 2nd, 2023 this past season. Other blackout dates are February 17th to 20th in 2023.
The blackout times and dates means that Value Pass holders can only ski after 4:30 pm on weekends and holidays all season long. They also require advance reservations for those times as well. For folk who are able to ski on weekdays though it can be worth the inconvenience.
Tubing and snowshoeing are also not included in the Value Pass (whereas they are with the Individual/Family Pass). Instead, Value Pass holders get 25% off tubing, snowshoe trails and snowshoe rentals.
Mt. Seymour’s Value Pass Prices
The Value Pass is the only season’s pass option at Mount Seymour to offer a Student discount. Similar to the Individual/Family Pass, prices listed below do not include the $5 charge for new passholders or any taxes and fees. Prices for the 2022/2023 value pass are as follows:
- Adults (ages 19 to 59) – $369
- Youth (ages 13 to 18) – $249
- Students (with valid student ID) – $249
Value Pass deals are not available for Seniors, Super Seniors, Children or Tots.
Season’s Pass Add-Ons
In addition to the benefits offered with each season’s pass, purchasers have the option to add other deals and insurance to their passes. Add-ons available for both Individual/Family Passes and Value Passes include a Rental Seasons Pass (for ages 13+) for $239 and Individual Pass Insurance (for ages 5+) for $49.
Individual/Family Pass holders also have the option to add on a Child Rental Seasons Pass (for kids under age 13) for $129. There is also Family Pass Insurance (covering up to 2 Adults and 3 Children) for $89.
Pass Insurance, or the Mount Seymour 60-Day Guarantee, allows passholders the option of a pro-rated refund or credit if certain conditions are met. Qualifying conditions include illness, work relocation over 200 kilometres, poor snow levels for 60+ days or a government closure due to COVID-19 for 60+ days.
