Hello, Kinguk! And welcome to Vancouver.
You are very close to the North Shore via the Second Narrows Bridge. Mount Seymour would be closest for skiing and snowshoeing. No gondola so it's much cheaper than Grouse Mountain.
Also, the Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve has wonderful trails and an 11 km long private roadway that is perfect for jogging strollers, rollerblading, or cycling. You just go over the bridge, take the Lilloett exit, and go straight up Lillooet road, past Capilano University, all the way to the very top where the parking lot is. We go hiking there fairly regularly and I run up there sometimes, too.
