All in all, I gave this mountain the best opportunity I could because I love the sport, but they aggressively broke me down and ruined the experience for me. I've been skiing since a child and this was hands down the worst experience I've ever had. Mainly the staff were my biggest issue. Aside from the safety issue which I'll describe below, the staff was completely unresponsive to my needs and not the least bit concerned with my experience. These people have no consideration for their customers enjoyment or positive experience. Andrew at the front counter left me with the most unappreciated feeling I've ever had skiing and is the main reason I will never return to this mountain. The staff had given me the incorrect skies which did not connect properly to my boots and caused me to fall very hard on the mountain. I then had to carry my skies and poles all the way back down to the lodge with an injured shoulder, very difficult. They would not let me take the lift back down, even though I'd witnessed others doing so before me. When I took the skies back, the main customer rep I dealt with, Andrew would not reimburse the ski rental even though they had not given me the incorrect product I ordered. The skies did not fit my boots! His suggestion was that I let them try again to provide the correct equipment and continue skiing with my injured shoulder. (I've been to the doctor, massage, chiropractor, Aspirin pain pills and acupuncture now to help alleviate the pain) I was too injured to continue skiing so I just had to swallow my pride and leave the resort. When I was leaving and severely frustrated with my experience, the parking lot attendant decided he would stir things up some more and claim that where I was picking up my friends from the lodge was entirely inappropriate. Rather than get into it with yet another overly aggressive and rude Cypress Staff member, we got in the truck and happily left this poor excuse of a ski mountain! If you think this will be a pleasant family experience, or a calming day on the ski hill, then STAY FAR AWAY FROM CYPRESS MOUNTAIN!!

Very poor handling of crowds with COVID. Compared with Nov 2020 visit, things slightly better but barely. One staff (female, blond long ponytail, in her 30s) at the door for the grill was extremely rude. My pass was entered correctly but my sons pass was entered for the correct date but wrong year so we had to go back and get that corrected. The mistakes on my passes, the rudeness, the parking mess, the line lineup to pick up a pre paid ticket combined makes me want to avoid this resort. I cannot get through if I call. You cannot leave a message. I emailed and the staff responded 2 days later, when it was too late. In fact I purchased lessons for my kids at Seymour since that place has done such a great job with answering questions, returning messages and having a sane parking plan.

Think twice before going, poor facilities, warming hut closed, cafe closes at 3pm!!, no seating areas. Left stranded waiting for the shuttle bus to go back. Its not a place to go and enjoy the snow, maybe a place very keen skiers would like only?

We discovered this resort after Whistler closed and we had come all the way from Florida to ski. I can see how it would be a locals favorite; not too far from Vancouver and some really amazing views. It's a smaller ski place but well laid out except for the bottom part of the mountain; too much walking to get to lifts. It was very crowded when we went but that was because it was the only place open in BC. If I lived in the area I would be a season pass holder.

Just a short (and easy) drive up the mountain from Vancouver and an outdoor paradise awaits. There are several trails available for snowshoeing and they criss-cross over the numerous cross country ski trails which are separate. The historic Hollyburn Lodge is a treat to meet up with friends after a nice short hike into the woods. Even when it is super busy on the mountain, the trails are winding and you rarely run into other trekkers.
