As a gold sponsor of the event, the seven35 development in North Vancouver by Adera has offered up a prize pack for one of my readers. seven35 is the first multi-family LEED for Homes platinum development in Canada and was certified BuiltGreen Gold. This green building and double-certified sustainability “first” in Canada.

Aside from being built green, the homes feature everything from a bicycle washing station, motion-sensor light switches and water-efficient irrigation. Featuring native plant species and numerous water features, they’re also located along the entrance to the Trans Canada Trail, and nearby Mosquito Creek.

To enter to win the gift card and the jacket I’d like to know what you love about the North Shore. From Grouse Mountain’s views to gelato at the Quay, events like the BC Bike Race, or kayaking in Deep Cove. You can also enter to win by posting the following on Twitter:

  13. Katie says:

    Beautiful views

  14. Tooth Fairy says:

    I love that the North Shore has choices, like Seymour, Grouse and Cypress mountains to choose from. Fun in the summer sun for outings or wintertime sports in the snow!

  15. Vicki Cunningham says:

    I love hiking the Grouse Grind and coming down on the skyride, snowshoeing up to the top of Cypress, beers on the patio at Seymours after a day in the forest, but mostly I love riding the trails. I cut my mountain biking teeth on the Shore and still love nothing more than a day spent shuttling or doing some XC on Seymour or riding up and down Fromme. I *love* mountain biking and I *love* the Shore.

  16. Kevin says:

    I love the local mountains, especially Seymour!

  17. Jas says:

    Grouse Mountain! The grouse grinde is painful but the view from up top is worth every ache!

  18. Aimee says:

    Best of the North Shore: a paddle up Indian Arm in the winter and a cycle through Seymour Demonstration in the summer.

  19. Ennie says:

    I like the view in North Shore.

    Even after moving 23 years ago, when I go over the Second Narrows to go visit, it still feels like I’m going home. πŸ™‚ I visit when I can, but it’s never enough.
