  • Breathtaking views! Loved hiking this mountain. Probably my favourite one I have hiked in Vancouver. Better than Grouse in my opinion. I think Grouse is overrated. Cypress Mountain isn't that hard to hike either, so you can enjoy your way up.
  • This review is about the cross-country area. I have been there over a dozen times and every time the experience is very positive. Trail grooming is good, staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Prices are reasonable. Get there early (before 9:30 on weekends) if you don't want to park too far away. Great views and plenty of trails so even if there are many people it won't feel crowded. The warming hut at the upper power lines area is a nice touch and acts as a social and gathering place for those so inclined, or simply as a marker for those just blazing through. The Nordic Cafe chalet is fine and has all the basics. Areas for improvement could include opening Brothers Canyon East and the trails around there more often, along with more clearly indicating when it is open and when it is not.
  • Trade off: pricier and higher elevations than Grouse and Seymour, but a lot more terrain. The terrain parks aren't quite as well designed either. Great spot for night skiing though, and a fun bike ride up to the top too.
  • Not sure how to rate a mountain, but there are lots of things to do here, so I guess it's pretty good. Huge points for being only 25 mins from downtown Vancouver. Snowboarding and snowshoeing are both solid for local mountains at a more affordable price than Whistler. There are also great hikes here, including Eagle Bluffs, which has awesome views of the city and the surrounding area.
  • I come here like every year and the staff is amazing the food is good (a bit over priced but worth it) the hills are really good for all riders. Organized staff too. Also a very good view and really awesome tarrain parks. really good for experts but also pretty good for beginners and intermediates. I JUST HAVE TOO MUCH FUN
