This is a fun ski resort. It attracts the young, the old and everything in between. The grill restaurant is reasonably good. Food is tasty. Service could be better. Most importantly everyone that comes there takes on a friendly disposition. Parking is readily available and free but be prepared to walk some.

It is not only you ski/snowboard in the winter, you can hike or tube, then this magnificent view makes you feel so special. Every time I go up there, my days become the best for a long time. Stuffs are so friendly and smiley. That is a plus! I am so grateful for living in this city.

After teaching the kids to ski at Seymour for the better part of five seasons, it got kind of small and boring. So we packed up our bags and went to Cypress this season. Obviously a bigger place and thus busier. It has two mountains- Mt. Strachan has the harder intermediate and advanced terrain and the better views, plus the... More

I grew up in the area but moved to California. I brought my teenage son up to Cypress for a weekend of skiing (me) and snowboarding (him). He is still a beginner and found plenty of runs he could feel confident on. I had to rent my equipment. I would recommend, if you are heading up on a busy beautiful... More

My kids wanted to do some skiing having never tried before. We went on a Thursday from Canada Place over to Lonsdale Quay on the seabus (an adventure in itself) to catch the shuttle bus up to the mountain. Very smooth public transport. The guy behind the desk was extremely helpful in getting us sorted out. My kids took a... More

The resort has kept the mountain facilities incredible and updated. The terrain is mixed and the people working for you are excellent. Hopefully there will be an expansion in the years to come!

Partner and I did the learn to ski weekend and loved it. Instructors were attentive and adaptive to the group and we had a lot of time with them so we didn't feel rushed. Swapping between instructors allowed us to experience a variety of teaching methods and advice. Really liked Matthew, Eric and Irene!

Cypress is located few minutes drive from downtown Vancouver - easy drive. However, not good idea if you plan to take public transit. Ticket lifts are reasonable and I found the snow conditions really good. If you like downhill, you should try the Top Gun trail - fantastic. Great views of the bay and mountains. Good for all levels of... More

So fair disclosure, I've skied before in Ontario so I have some basis to compare to. I'm used to skiing in -10C temps all day, 3+ hours driving one-way, and expensive food once at the resort dining hall or (even worse) the village. Cypress blew me away. Stayed with my girlfriend at Burnaby and door-to-door to Cypress took us 40mins... More

This mountain is so close to the city and yet offers some really enjoyable runs plus a great little ski school for my boys.
