Winter camping in lower mainland B.C.

Just wandering what the weather is like around mid January to end of February, and what is there to do at that time of year.

Good Morning from the Lower Mainland. We've lived here for the past 15 years and have been full time for the past year. It does rain a lot, saturday was the first sunshine for 22 days. However, you do NOT shovel rain, and if it does snow it is usually gone within a couple days. As long as the water lines have heat tape they don't freeze.
There are several very good RV parks within a short drive of Vancouver. Currently we are in Peace Arch, but have stayed in Cottonwood and Brae Island. Peace Arch is very close to the border crossings, White Rock Beaches and, depending on Traffic half to three quarters of an hour from downtown Vancouver.
Other than sun tanning, any a person can do in the summer they can do in the winter.

Can I assume you were there last winter, what was the weather like at that time. Can you suggest things to do and visit, as seems our dollar is going down hill and it looks like we might just have stay in Canada. Thanks again, for all your comments.

For our American friends, remember that when we Canadians talk temps we use Celsius, not Farenheit. But 1deg Celsius is still cool enough to make you think about going south!
