Drive up the road called 'Cypress Bowl' on a steady incline half way up the mountain. It'll take you to a clearing on the right where you will overlook Vancouver. It is a great place to see the land, the water, the city, the bridges...More

there is no snow in this mountain; 2013-14 both have been crap; Silver pass at Cypress is a useless piece of crap. Cypress team could have relaxed the rule for Silver holders to be able to ski on the weekend as an apology when there...More

It must be a really spectacular place in winter. In summer the tracks are not suited for any other sport. There are few observation points on the way up. Nice views of Vancouver. Nice developments as well.

Good slopes and trails. May be a bit too crowdy in the mornings on the weekends and holidays. Best time to go there is afternoons and weekdays.

Apparently this is the best place in Vancouver to do skiing. It is much cheaper than whistle and has many more trails to choose from when compared to grouse mountain or Seymour. Skyline is terrific and you can feel that you can touch the sky...More
