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.

Vancouver Islands only remaining lift serviced mountain is yet another one of the coastal mountains in B.C. that gets pounded hard with Pacific storms all winter long. Located about half way up Vancouver Island, Mount Washington rises 1588 meters above sea level and is just 80 km east of wide open ocean, making it the closest ski resort to the Pacific Ocean.

The ski area of Apex Mountain Resort is actually on Beaconsfield Mountain. This is an appropriately named mountain. When you get to the top and look around, you will see lots of tempting sidecountry and backcountry, where an avalanche beacon is required. [ Read More ]
