City and Slope is a four day destination mountain and music festival set to take place over Vancouver’s three local mountains and rock its downtown core this coming February 9 to 12.

2012 will mark the inaugural City and Slope, poised to become Vancouver’s signature annual winter event. City and Slope has partnered with Grouse Mountain, Cypress Mountain, Mount Seymour, Yaletown BIA, The Adelphia Group, Live Nation, Blueprint Events, the Museum of Vancouver and Telus World of Science.

Vancouver is the only city in the world to feature three world-class skiing facilities within 25 minutes of the downtown core, therefore City and Slope has put together an exclusive bundled pass that allows guests to enjoy access to all three mountains and save up to 20 per cent on mountain passes.

On the slopes, the focus will be on winter sport activities and animations on each of Vancouver’s local mountains, all with a unique theme. A few highlights will include outdoor adventures at Grouse Mountain, snowboarding at Mount Seymour, and Canada 2010 Olympics at Cypress Mountain.
