They say in Vancouver you can hit the mountains for a ski in the morning and swim in the ocean in the afternoon. When it snows, we like to combine our two favourite hobbies and have a ski along the oceanfront seawall that surrounds much of the city. A video of the Vancouver-phenomenon in action was posted to Reddit they're actually skiing on the sidewalk.\nThe city of Vancouver is surrounded by a 28-kilometre long greenway called the seawall. That's where you'll find all of our characteristic Lululemon-wearing joggers, cyclists and pedestrians enjoying world-class views of the ocean.\nIn the video posted to Reddit, you can see a skier happily gliding along the seawall by the Quayside Marina in Yaletown.\n"Saw someone skiing on the seawall this morning," reads the title of the Reddit post. It was uploaded to the r/Vancouver subreddit on Wednesday, January 15 by Reddit user rbmt.\nThe typically mild coastal city doesn't receive much snowfall compared to other Canadian cities.\nPublic transit slows down to a crawl and even stops completely with some TransLink customers helping to get out and push when a bus gets stuck.\nIn fact, most of the city typically shuts down as schools get a snow day, university classes are cancelled and officials urge people to work from home and stay put.\nhttps://www.reddit.com/r/vancouver/comments/ep4ipd/saw_someone_skiing_on_the_seawall_this_morning/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x from https://www.reddit.com/r/vancouver\nAfter a series of uncharacteristic snowstorms hit Vancouver mid-January, this video shows just how weird the city gets when it's covered in snow.\nRight now, there's no end in sight for Vancouver because there's still heaps of the white stuff on the streets. You may be able to ski for a while longer, yet.\nBike lane turned cross-country ski course #yvr #Vancouver #Snowmageddon2020 #vancouversnowstorm2020 @GlobalBC pic.twitter.com/eMcCbYvuC6— Jada Basi (@jadabasi) January 15, 2020\nWhy would you head up to Grouse Mountain for a ski when you can cross-country around the city for free?\nWe have closed the #StanleyPark seawall between the Lions Gate Bridge and Siwash Rock due to falling ice. The rest of the seawall remains open. #Vancouver pic.twitter.com/eA5syApvKx— Vancouver Park Board (@ParkBoard) January 16, 2020\nWhile it's all fun and games to ski along the seawall, it's important to say safe out there. Part of Stanley Park's seawall was closed on Thursday, January 16 due to hazardous falling ice.
