  • This was my first year that I had a ski pass at Cypress and I have to say it was fantastic. The downhill runs are awesome and much larger than Grouse. Parking is free and plenty, the Nordic Area with Crosscountry skiing and snowshoeing is also great fun. When the summer comes then Cypress is worth a hike since the views from the peaks are just absolutely amazing.
  • My personal favorite of the North Shore mountains for Downhill. Great runs, well maintained, lots of free parking. Lineups can sometimes get a little long, though, especially for rentals. Usually best to rent somewhere else and bring your gear up.
  • We've been snowshoeing here three times this year. The conditions of course varied with the weather but the staff have always been very helpful. I rented my snowshoes the first time and got set up very quickly. There isn't really room in the rental hut, and you wouldn't want to put them one there anyway as you have to cross a road to get back to the snow. Once you are at the bottom of the x-country and snowshoe trails there are benches and staff to help get you sorted. They will also help with explanations of the maps of the trails, difficulty, distance, etc. A pocket map is provided. Once on the trails, we found they were well marked and easy to follow. The trails do get a little harder as you go from Green, through Blue, to Black, but not to the point of being overly hard. We're in reasonable shape, but by no means 'athletes' and we were able to climb every hill on the way to the look out.
  • The drive up is incredible on a sunny day with breath taking panoramic views of the city that can't be seen from the other mountains. The mountain itself is the best of the local Vancouver city hills in terms of terrain and diversity.
  • Such a beautiful hike and perfect for exploring snow-plastered Hollyburn Mountain. It's a relatively easy trek along the 3.5 kilometre trail to the mountain’s breathtaking summit. Standing atop the snow capped crest, you're provided a magnificent view of the Lions to the north and the many stunning peaks of Garibaldi Provincial Park to the northwest. Be sure to pack a crazy carpet or at least a hefty garbage bag to add some speed and adrenaline to your descent.
