Cypress Mountain is located only 21 miles from downtown Vancouver and offers 225 hectares of exhilarating slopes to explore. The ski area is split into two sub-sections: Black Mountain and Mt. Strachan. The Cyprus Creek Lodge valley station intersects these two areas. The 53 trails are made up of 32 hectares of easy runs, 85 hectares of intermediate slopes, 108 hectares of black-marked trails as well as 20 hectares of off-piste routes.

The 10 lifts carry skiers and snowboarders up the mountain, which offers breath-taking views over towards Vancouver and the open ocean beyond. Youngsters can learn to ski at one of the local ski schools and the ski area also has a special children’s lift dedicated to young learners.

The freestyle ski and snowboard competitions were held at Cypress Mountain as part of the Olympic Winter Games in 2010. As a result, the resort is a true mecca for freestyle fans. There are four freestyle terrain parks, each with various obstacles of all difficulties as well as a Katal Landing Pad Airbag, which allows you to try out new tricks. The Stomping Ground is located on Windjammer run. This family-friendly terrain park is best suited to beginners. The Katal Landing Pad Airbag is in the Patio Park, while the Skate Park is located next to the Maelle Ricker’s Run and boasts intermediate and large obstacles. The District terrain park is the largest park in the ski area and offers up some truly spectacular obstacles.

Cypress Mountain is not only an ideal destination for skiing and snowboarding, it is also a great place for cross-country skiing. Around 20 kilometres of groomed cross-country tracks are waiting to be explored, including 7 kilometres of floodlit trails. You can also reconnoitre the snowy backcountry on marked trails with the help of snowshoes. And if you are looking for a little more action, look no further than the snow tubing course at Gnarly’s Tube Park and Sliding Area.

Après-Ski and Nightlife

Your best bet for après-ski is probably a trip to Vancouver’s downtown area with its numerous discos, clubs and bars. This part of the city is also a great destination if you’re in the mood for a special meal after a day on the slopes. There are a whole host of restaurants where food lovers can choose from a range of different cuisines.
