Speak to any local resident and they will likely say that their favourite thing about Vancouver is how they can go surfside to mountainside in the same day. Our city boasts many exciting ways to enjoy the great outdoors. We spend Summers riding our bikes along sandy beaches, while the snow-capped mountains call our names all Winter long.
BC’s largest sports action retailer Comor - Go Play Outside shares our passion for skiing, snowboarding, and biking, and has been providing Lower Mainland residents with top-notch expertise and customer service since 1974, with locations in Burnaby, Kitsilano, and Whistler.
We asked the locally owned and operated retailer: Which 6 items will motivate us to enjoy our city’s best assets this Winter?
