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.

Sun Peaks Resort can be found to the north-east of Kamloops. It's made up of 3 mountains, so as you can imagine is quite a large area. They claim the title of being the second largest ski area in Canada. The village is also one of the most well-developed. [ Read More ]
Some ski areas are said to be in a snow shadow. If there is an opposite term for that, it could be used to describe Whitewater. This ski area gets significantly more snow than its regional rivals, and it has awesome terrain with which to shred it on a pow day. [ Read More ]
This mountain in South Eastern B.C. gets a ton of snow and is conveniently located just far enough away from any major population to keep it fairly low key. 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 ]
