GSS Local Mountains Subsidy Program

GSS Local Mountains Subsidy Program

This winter the GSS is encouraging graduate students to (safely) enjoy the snow on our local slopes! Our Local Mountains subsidy scheme allows UBC graduate students to get discounts on their tickets to our wonderful mountains near the city.  

You can get a 25% discount on any day pass to either Cypress, Grouse, or Seymour Mountains from February 15 – March 15, 2021. Go out and enjoy the snow and fresh air on the slopes (in a pandemic-friendly manner) and share your visit with the rest of the grad student community on social media using the hashtag #GSSGoesOutside.
