Hit the Slopes with Modo

Are we being boastful when we say we live in a skier’s paradise?

We can see Cypress, Grouse and (on a good day) Seymour from our downtown offices, and Whistler and Baker are less than a couple hours by car. Some might say we’re spoiled for choice; we say swish-swish!

Whether you’ve been planning for weeks or only just decided right this very minute to head to the mountains, here are some tips and tools – from booking your vehicle to finding the powder – to help make this your Best. Winter. Ever.

Pro-Tips on Booking Your Modo

  • Filter your booking search to find vehicles with snow tires, a little extra room for all that gear, or even AUX audio input (time to prep those pre- and post-mountain playlists!)
  • Book extra time at the end of your trip so you’re not rushing to beat the clock.
  • Don’t forget: gas is on us!

Digital Tools to Help You Get There

  • Our pals at HitchPlanet help skiers find their tribe and share rides along the way. Offer a ride or grab your own.
  • Worried about traffic? Download Waze, the crowdsourced traffic app that finds you the best route with the least delay.
  • PlugShare is an EV locator app and good to have on hand if you’re driving the electric highway. 
  • If you’re old school, Google Maps is an oldie and a goodie.

Saving Money and Having Fun

  • Drive free: Pick up an Annual Pass or any Snow Pass for Grouse Mountain and we’ll give you $30 in free driving!
  • Liftopia is an awesome site that offers discounts on lift tickets throughout BC.
  • Get the latest snow reports from OnTheSnow’s newest app called Ski & Snow Report.
  • For the road (and the chalet), Rdio and Songza are two music streaming apps with curated playlists to pump you up, or chill things out apres-ski.
  • Share pics via Instagram and tag #LetsModo to add them to our road trip archive!

Maybe the most important tip is to keep Modo on speed dial because, like we always say:
