Autumn in Vancouver sees the city's rain slow down. Temperatures remain moderate compared to the rest of the country, staying in between 4-10 °C. September to November is a great time to visit, as weather is pleasant and airfares and hotel rates drop.
Winter in Vancouver sees little snow but is wet, with large amounts of precipitation in the form of rain and slush. One thing for visitors to be aware of is the phenomenon of flash freezing which occurs when precipitation arrives and temperatures drop below freezing, which can make for challenging driving conditions. Nearby Whistler, however, gets loads of snow and is a major ski destination through May.
