We visited Vancouver over the holidays and I took the opportunity to take the bus up to Cypress to try snowshoeing for the first time. Buses leave from the Art Gallery in downtown at 9.30am $25 roundtrip. Refer to the coach site as run independent from the
resort. Cypress Coach Lines
I booked my day online and this included access to the trails (pass supplied at Cypress Nordic Center) and snowshoe and boots rental. A pretty great deal for around $38 Canadian. The trails like downhill are graded based on difficulty and I was thrilled with how easy it was to feel accomplished at most of the terrains. I do consider myself pretty fit but all the trails are walked at your own pace with the Greens closest to the catering and warming hut facilities. Just amazing to be out there on my own with no music (though that would compliment the walking I am sure) and using my phone for only photographs of the gorgeous snow filled terrain. Highly recommend this sport and btw the staff in and around the Nordic Center are brilliant to giving advice and giving direction on how to best enjoy the trails.

Cypress ski mountain like Grouse is “small” (a half hour outside downtown Vancouver). It’s incredible the amount snow accumulating there for a local mountain. Its value is cost savings and convenience/proximity, more than anything. Cypress is a tad more expensive (similar) to Grouse. Although a teenager might find it’s less or one-fifth the experience compared to the super long runs @Blackcomb, online rack prices of a youth pass is roughly half: $75 not $152 per day. Also, it’s easier for parents to drop off and go. Food is cheaper (or pack a lunch); reservations don’t need to be prearranged for dining at the lodge; there’s no packed gondola/wait, as per touristy Grouse. People who need wide runs or prefer the bare mountains of Aspen, CO, might prefer higher coastal mountains. Families might also enjoy panoramic vistas at Grouse, but skiers will enjoy the view at Cypress’ slopes—except that it doesn’t have a terrain park for boarders like smaller Mount Seymour. Grouse is competitive only if pricing for one child, since their special rate is $200/family of 3. Seymour and Grouse are popular for snowshoe/skate renters too, but Cypress has pretty reliable conditions as a former Olympic Park. Guest services at the daylodge can help riders to obtain a RFID reloadable Cypress card. Unlike Whistler, Cypress lift tickets are nonrefundable. It’s also higher & colder than Grouse…so dress warm, and enjoy the gorgeous ride at Cypress Mountain!

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)

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.

The Lights to the Lodge attraction at Cypress Mountain is absolutely stunning. We had so much fun trekking on our snowshoes through the LED-lit old growth forest. The light display was absolutely stunning and the trail was easy to follow. Once we made it to the Hollyburn Lodge, we enjoyed a burger and a beer before heading back on the trail. We had a wonderful evening snowshoeing on Cypress! I would highly recommend this experience for anyone looking to get out for an evening of fun and adventure with family and/or friends.

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?

Terrible customer service. I understand that it’s your busiest season but please answer your emails if that’s the “best”way to contact someone. When you call and ask to speak to a supervisor or a manager you are given the run around. “Im not at liberty to give out a supervisor or managers email address because it’s personal information.”We are not asking for their home addresses we are asking for their work email! Give me a break. Why would your company decide the best customer service practice is to not let customers contact a supervisor?

I booked tickets for the Eagle Coaster thinking we could get the bus up and down from the city. The bus only runs on weekends. Something that I didn’t not find easy to establish. There are no buses heading that way so ended up Uber up and taxi down. 80$ in taxis. And your tickets are non refundable.
Yes, the coaster is fun for the kids. Very expensive day out though
Personally I would be spending my money on something else unless you go at the weekend or have a car

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.
