Summer is high season in British Columbia. Vancouver hums with energy and the province's national parks are packed full of hikers, campers and day trippers.

Snow bunnies arrive in December, when local mountains like Whistler, Fernie and Cypress receive dustings of snow. By January, BC is in full-swing powder mode. Spring can be a beautiful time to visit, while fall sees the province's maple trees explode in a sea of reds, yellows and golds.
