MEC Snowfest North Vancouver is an urban celebration of snow sports and the winter environment in beautiful British Columbia.

Snowfest is a free event for all ages offering informative clinics and workshops, the latest gear from the best brands, a kid’s area, and is home to our legendary Snow Swap!

Snow Swap

Snow Swap at Snowfest is THE choice for those who are looking to score some sweet deals on previously-loved gear including skis, ski boots, snowshoes, and much, much more. Got a closet overflowing with gear? Snow Swap is also the perfect venue for those looking to find a new home for their gear. Consignees have the option of renting a full or a 1/2 table to sell their wares and are welcome to partner with friends if they do not have enough gear to necessitate a table. MEC staff will be available to assist with pricing and getting set up. Snow Swap will be taking place on the roof of the Vancouver store during Snowfest. Members are advised to line up early (read: really, really early!) to secure a place in line.

Members looking to rent a table for Snow Swap must pay for the table in person at the Member Services Desk in our Vancouver store. There are no prior reservations permitted and bookings are done on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Here are the details:
Full table: $20
Half Table: $10
No refunds 72 hours prior to event.

If you need more info, you are welcome to call our Member Service Desk here at the store. 604.872.7858

Got a hankering to get outside and enjoy the winter playground, but feel uncertain about avalanches or how to winter camp in comfort? We've got you covered with awesome free clinics from some of the most knowledgeable experts in the industry including the Canadian Avalanche Centre, The Alpine Club of Canada and even some of our great MEC staff. If you're looking to learn more about enjoying winter pursuits safely, MEC Snowfest is you resource for accurate, reliable information. 

What would an event be without cool giveaways for our members? We are excited to be partnered with so many great brands and organizations who have stepped up to offer some goodies at Snowfest. We will have giveaways all day from many of our exhibitors and we are very proud to announce that this year we will be handing out a fantastic grand prize...

Getting hooked up with sweet deals all day can make anyone hungry and if you camped out over night for a place in line, we know you're gonna need some coffee. Thankfully, we've got some support from some great local establishments to keep your spirits up.

Parents attending Snowfest this year are welcome to drop their children off in our kids area. MEC staff will be on hand to provide entertainment and activities in a safe environment while you visit Snowfest. No booking necessary, just show up, drop off the little ones and have a good time.
