Cypress Mountain, West Vancouver

4.1
#2 of 7 in Outdoors in West Vancouver
Carve up the snow at Cypress Mountain, just a 30 minute drive north of downtown Vancouver and located in the southern part of Cypress Provincial Park. Choose from over 50 named alpine ski runs and 19 km (12 mi) of cross-country trails. Take a snowshoeing tour through the mountains, filled with cedar trees and offering memorable views at every turn. Relax with a meal and drink at one of the restaurants, cafes or bars. When exploring, be careful of steep cliffs, frozen waterfalls, boulders, and tree wells.

  • I've been skiing at Hollyburn for 20 years and have never seen the condition of the trails so bad as January 1st.The grooming was very poor resulting in many hills being treacherous. The $23 trail fee...  more »
  • Great place to ski! Lots of runs, lots of snow and friendly staff. Food selection for lunch was quick and tasty. Prices are what you would expect on a ski hill. Coffee was good, soup was good and muff...  more »
  • We first visited Cypress in the summer and loved it. On our visit from the UK this Christmas we went up the mountain in the snow, fantastic. We took our four year old grandson on the sledge run. It is...  more »

  • Beautiful day. Great little ski hill. Head up early (before 8am or so) if you want to park close by- otherwise be prepared to walk 5- 10 + blocks to the kiosk; long lineups there as well. Expect approx 10-20 lineups between each run at the lifts. Is it worth it? Sure. Great way to spend the day in fresh air & beautiful scenery- especially for you & your kids. (Just I think that the city should work on more parking & less housing up here.) Namaste
  • Great place for skiing and snowboarding for starters and more professional folks. There is separate area for kids. Gear rental is great (could get stuck in a long line on holidays) but totally worth it.
  • 1. Closer than Whistler from Vancouver(20 minute drive from Vancouver) 2. Less expensive than Whistler 3. Amazing views of Vancouver 4. Great hours 5. See for yourself.
  • The service is great and only a short drive from Vancouver. Makes for a good last minute choice for the single traveller. Be sure to get your lift ticket at the rental counter if you rented equipment online.
  • Extrem poor customer service. I lost my season pass card and went up for the first ride of the season just to learn that the replacement fee for a new card will be $60(!!!). I was honestly shocked that replacing a small plastic card justifies such a fee. The shift manager told me the reason for the fee is that people pretend to loose their passes to get a free pass for their buddys. He admitted that the crew which checks the passes at the gates basically don't do their job and therefore honest customers have to pay the price for Cypress Mountain not be able to properly train their crew. It was genuinely offered to me that I could purchase the evening ticket so I don't have to pay for the replacement if I don't want to. What a joke to offer somebody to pay for something what he has already paid. I called customer service a day later which wasn't much of a use. Just basically told me the same that gate crews don't check properly and people sneak in with other people passes. He suggested to write a mail because he had no powers to refund me. Waiting now for nearly a week for a reply. Being treated as a potential cheater and no commitment to deal with customer issues. Guess that's the famous Cypress Mountain Customer Service 👏👏👏
