Weather

The proximity to the ocean and its location within the shelter of the Coast Mountains has created a natural "greenhouse" effect. Temperatures are moderate with rainfall being less than half of that found on the coast.

Terrace summers are beautiful with varying temperatures that can brag nice warm weather for a majority of the summer months. Falls are rainy like most fall weather, but very colourful. Winter usually kicks in around the beginning of December/January, depending on the year.  The accumulation of snow in the mountains makes for a great playground for avid skiers at our sought after Shames Mountain ski hill.
