#33-2608 Whiteley Court, North Vancouver, BC, Canada V7J 2R6

Yoepie! As of July 1st we have an appartment in North Vancouver. It's in an appartment complex called Mountain Village Appartments.

We have a two bedroom appartment on the ground floor, facing west.

The location is excellent, it's close to the Lynn Valley Road that leads directly to the Lynn Headwaters Regional Park. Lot's of nice trails starting at our doorstep :-)

It's also close to Grouse Mountain (9km), Mount Seymour (12km) and the Sea to Sky highway..

So when we arrive the 21st of July we can drive from the airport to our house :-)

Back from Holiday

After a nice, long holiday (almost 4 weeks) we had to come back to .nl
But we learned a lot. Coquitlam and Maple Ridge are no longer the most likely places to live. They are either to remote (Maple Ridge) and/or we didn't like the atmosphere.

Our new destination of choice is North Vancouver, close to the city (just cross the Lions Gate Bridge), and close to the skiing areas (with Mount Seymour just around the corner, and Grouse and Cypress just a bit further down the road.

Unfortunately the houses are a bit more expensive, but still managable.

For pictures of our holiday, have a look at the Gallery

The Internet is a very useful tool to check out places that want to go to. It's even useful to find a place where you would like to live.

Like in the Netherlands there is an site with the housing offers. All information is kept by the MLS (Multiple Listing Service)
I like another site better, it look a bit better :-) www.realtylink.org

Another page provides really good info on the areas in and around Vancouver

Together with Mapblasting to find out how far things are from city Vancouver, the area called Coquitlam seams to be a good choice. Affordable houses and a good website :-)

One of the primary reason to go to Canada is the amazing nature. We already knew that Whister is really close. Whistler is always rated within the top 3 of best skiing locations in the world.

When starting to check out Telemarking (Free heel skiing) opportunities I found some thing that made me really happy

The standard try for an URL is always: put www in front of it and the country at the end and give it a go:
turns out the be the Vancouver Telemark Festival. What a luck, in our city of choice.

At the bottom of the page is a link to the ski resort:
Mount Seymour
After a little bit of hunting it turned out to be not that far from Coquitlam, to be more precise it was 24.1km and 26 minutes..... WOWWWWW

Then I started to Google a bit for more ski locations in the Vancouver area. What a list:

Now we drive 11 hours to Livigno to get to the Skieda :-)
