The most westerly of the North Shore mountains, Cypress mountain is the biggest little mountain in Vancouver. Up here you will have more vertical, more lifts and more runs than any of the other North Shore mountains. The crowds up here are comparable to Grouse most days, but with more terrain once you get through the lift line you should be a lot better off as most of the people stick to the mellow groomers. This mountain, like Seymour, is reached by a 15 km drive up a paved mountain road which will get you right to the base of lift operations.

Cypress will be a venue for a number of skiing and and snowboarding events in the 2010 Olympics which basically means nothing to you and I, but it does mean they now have a super pipe to ride. The vertical drop on Cypress is around 520 meters, giving it significantly more vertical than the other two local hills and a more big mountain feel. Lots of steep terrain can be found on the upper parts of the mountain along with good tree runs and even some cruisers if your in to that kind of thing. What you get here is much like what you get on the other hills in Vancouver, just more of it.

This big mountain rarely disappoints, unless of course you trash your gear on some early season rocks. The upper parts of the mountain are gnarly, with steep chutes everywhere off the top ridges that throw you out into wide open bowls. Once you get out of the alpine you will find decent tree skiing, quite a few groomers and a lengthy cat track that can have some fun features off the edges. The ba... [ Read More ]
Red Mountain Resort claims 28% of the runs in the ski area are double blacks. That's definitely a bit more than average! There is a ton of vertical on the 3 mountains that make up Red. It is probably one of the best places in BC to be on a powder day during a season when the snowpack is good. [ Read More ]
