    Fun coaster but mediocre facilities
    Came here to try the eagle coaster. I have been on alpine coasters around the world and this one was good but I have been on better. We went on a weekday mid morning and had hardly any wait to get on. The staff at the botto, and top of the mountain were nice. You have to book tickets in advance and you’ll get a time slot for entry ( you can go on the chairlift to the top 15 mins before your time ). The coaster isn’t very fast but it is still fun for all the family. You can control your speed if you are more nervous. The actual cypress mountain is nice with good views but the facilities including restrooms and restaurant are very mediocre. The restaurant in particular was awful so I would avoid it and bring your own food.

    RFID Processes need to be more customer focused and restaurant needs a tune up.
    Well we went to the resort yesterday for my daughters birthday and we had great weather and the mountain was great. Reason for the 3 out of 5 review was mainly the RFID system. My daughter’s pass stopped working half way through the day and the only recourse the lift operator has is to send you back to customer service to fix it. It should not be necessary for a paying customer to go and waste their ski time tromping back to customer service, waiting in god knows how long a line up due to a problem with a system that only works half the time. There should be a way to help your customers right at the lift by fixing their pass or giving them a temporary one to use until it’s convenient for them to go to customer service to fix it. The temp pass should get them to the front of the line at customer service when they arrive so they do not have to wait in a giant line up. Other than that the only other complaint I had was the food and service in the grill needs a little tune up. Some basic pub food not available, ie chicken tenders… what pub doesn’t serve those as an appy, and they were out of the WINTER ale and the waitress could not suggest a comparable option. All in all I love the mountain and my daughter and I had a great ski day for her birthday. Fix the rfid badge break down system(s) to be customer focused and I will give a better review next time.

    Cypress Mountain - Great First Impression
    I skied for the first time on Cypress in early April. I really enjoyed the ski conditions, the friendly staff on the hill and in the canteen. I rented my ski equipment; fabulous. The sunset from the top of Black Mountain in the early evening was a very big surprise. The 'lift' to the top was very busy from 7 pm onward, as lots of other skiers and boarders knew why they were going to the top. Each of the two mountains is different from the other. Good grooming was good to see.

Don’t get me wrong! The coaster was fun! But standing in line for 1 1/2 hours waiting to ride it was not! Our tickets were purchased for the 2 pm coaster but when we reached the top, the 1 pm riders were still waiting for their turn. And if you have purchased for two rides, prepare for a long day of standing around. Most double riders forfeited their second ride because of the wait time. They did not have any tents or umbrellas up for shade on a toasty 30 degree day. Hopefully that will change. And there is nothing to drink. So make sure to bring a disposable water bottle and a hat. I say disposable because there is no place in the coaster to keep your own water bottle. So you will have to ditch it before you get on the coaster. And bring a hat that you won’t mind losing because it will probable get blown off and lost. You are also not able to board the chair lift until your time. So don’t come early thinking you can get a bit of a head start. And stop at guest services to get your official scan card to get entry to the chairlift. Otherwise you will have to walk back to guest services from the chairlift. As I heard some people grumble about.
And go to the bathroom before you head to the chairlift! No bathrooms at the top. Parents of younger children were not happy! And last but not least! Don’t bring a back back. You will not be able to take it up with you. But you can leave it at the bottom of the chairlift!
They seem to have lots of staff but I don’t feel like they are using them efficiently. It seemed like 3 people at the top were doing all the work and the rest were standing around.
I hope they can iron out the kinks so people can enjoy the ride more!

If you want to spend your day in massive lineups, this is the mountain for you. One hour vehicle lineup to access the park, only to find out all but the furthest parking lots are full— a 15-minute walk to the bottom of the lift and a 45-minute chairlift lineup—mismanaged operation. Season pass holders are not required to book in advance like Whistler, so Cypres is jammed packed.

Mountain itself is good. It's the highest one from local ones.
But... Food is mediocre. I've payed season pass for myself and 2yr old tot. Pass for little one costed about 80$ (vs 20$ in Whistler) and we still can not go to magic carpet... They don't tell anywhere neither on website nor in agreement that magic carpet is restricted to lessons only. And kiddo is too small to share chairlift. So, for what I've paid 80 bucks? Moreover, I saw carpet sometimes is completely free of people - on weekdays, and when there are timeouts between lessons. Cypress team, I would be very grateful, if you can manage this concern and provide some options to get in, based on time windows and/or limited by max capacity of rides there. So, it won't be overcrowded and all tots will have some fun.

PS: I've passed a few ski school + snbd certifications and pretty confident rider. Getting lessons for 2yr olds is pretty hard, 'cause they're barely get themselves organized, and need precise control. So, there is no point to buy lessons for him.

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?

The mountain is good and terrain but its always too warm. Only skychair snow is usually good. bottom half of runs are always kinda wet/icy after the coldest month and some runs never even open ever in a season cause the snow cant build up (black on black, black fly, meteor)

Location and road access are great. Best local (Vancouver) skiing resort for downhill skiing.

However too few trails open this season, too crowded and lineups of 30-45 mins starting at 10am means weekends are useless. Not worth a season card anymore.

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.
