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.

If you have seen shots of people riding through the snow and not on top of it they were probably taken here as Fernie gets some of the lightest snow around. [ Read More ]
Lake Louise serves up the most terrain in the Canadian Rockies and from time to time gets some good dumps of snow as well. This is where most people from Calgary come to shred along with many of the people staying in Banff, so it can get busy on the weekends. The mountain has three different areas to choose from, all offering up something different, allowing you to escape the crowds even on the b... [ Read More ]
This mountain about an hour out of Calgary is one of the best little big mountains around, and in my mind the closest legitimate mountain to Calgary. The resort itself is located in the Kananaskis Region of Alberta, which is about 25 km east of the B.C./Alberta border and in the most easterly part of the Rocky Mountains. This location at the edge of the Rockies provides Fortress with quite a bit ... [ Read More ]
