VANCOUVER'S ONLY BIG MOUNTAIN EXPERIENCE!

Welcome to Cypress Mountain, the Official Freestyle Skiing and Snowboard Venue for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. Located in West Vancouver, BC, Canada, Cypress is only 30 minutes from downtown Vancouver and is proud to continue to provide our skiers, riders and sliders with the most vertical drop, most terrain, most lifts and best snow conditions on the highest skiing and riding peak of Vancouver's Legendary North Shore Mountains.

What's New for the 2012/13 Winter Season:

Cypress Snowmaking System: Our “Best in the Business” Snowmaking Crew has completed construction of a major new investment in the Cypress Snowmaking System designed to ensure that our Skiers and Riders have the best possible North Shore snow conditions right from Opening Day – remember last year’s November 8th record!

Our System will now be more efficient in blanketing the entire Olympic Terrain on the north face of Black Mountain with Man Made Powder from top to bottom! Cypress Mountain is blessed with these north facing slopes that are less impacted by solar rays and enjoy a micro climate that stays colder than other areas. Just for good measure, we have also added 5 snow gun hydrants on lower Collins, and one on Lower Horizon, to ensure that natural snow is supplemented leading to the bottom of Lion’s Express – very exciting news!.

With early indications that the weather may be slightly colder than normal this winter, after a warm dry late summer and fall, there will be no better reason than our “state of the art” Snowmaking System to count on Cypress Mountain for your Skiing or Riding this season!!

Our expert Crew are now equipped with high pressure hydrants that cover almost 90% of the terrain on Eagle Express Quad - the electronic controls installed on the System can activate the Snow Guns the minute the magic combination of temperature and humidity triggers the sensors to produce our signature Cypress Man Made (Double M) Powder snow - bring on the weather!!

Our “Big Mountain Experience” gets Better every season – just 25 minutes from Second Narrows!

Terrain Parks: Attention Park Riders, we have ordered an Air Bag from Katal Landing Pad! The Patio Park is being re-contoured for this very exciting addition. Check out http://katalinnovations.com/ and stay in touch with our new Landing Bag page click HERE.

New Snow Cat: A new monster Pisten Bully PB600 Snow Cat with a super sized Polar Blade was delivered to Cypress Mountain late October - this machine is designed to move more snow, lay out the best corduroy track possible, and consume much less energy than either of the 2 Bombardier 275 Snowcats it will replace. Our Alpine Snowcat fleet will now be made up of a PB600 Winch Cat, our new PB600 Free Groomer, a PB400 Winch Cat, a PB400 Free Groomer and our Park Cat - a Prinoth 350 - huge firepower, so we're looking forward to our best grooming conditions ever for the winter of 2012/13.

Visitor Reviews of Cypress Mountain

Dennis from Canada writes:

This last season I had both Cypress and Seymour seasons passes. Seymour has been my mountain for the previous 5 years, but I've outgrown it, I think. Cypress has the snowmakers that can make the difference between a run and a rock garden. They pay more attention to beginner park than Seymour (never figured that out...), and far more variety in terrain. If you're buying a family pass, you can't beat Seymour's early bird discount, but otherwise the price difference is worth it. I was concerned that weekends might be a total zoo, but it's about the same as Seymour and nothing like Grouse on an average weekend.
