A Great News Update for Opening Day tomorrow – The most Vertical, Terrain and Lift Capacity on the North Shore

Cypress Mountain – Vancouver's only BIG Mountain Experience is very proud to announce that we will have Big Mountain North Shore skiing open for Saturday morning. Eagle Express Quad will be open to access all of the Gold Medal terrain on the north face of Black Mountain – Upper Fork, Jasey Jay (formerly PGS), Windjammer plus the return of Panorama which is again fully open for skiers and riders! Zoom to the top of Black Mountain in 4 minutes on the High Speed Quad Chair and get in all of the rides you need this weekend. For those who prefer Beginner Terrain we also will be opening Easy Rider Quad Chair!

The amazing timber frame structure, the Cypress Creek Lodge will be fully open for all visitor services including the huge Crazy Raven Bar & Grill plus we now have additional new free paved parking areas only minutes from the Lifts (priority pay parking will also be available right beside the Cypress Creek Lodge).

Our Winch Cats have taken the time necessary to climb the steep slopes to groom out the huge mounds of snow from our automated “State of the Art” Snowmaking System on the 2010 Olympic course terrain - we are very excited to re-open these now legendary ski runs which were closed all of last season to make way for the Olympic Ski and Snowboard Cross and Parallel Giant Slalom courses where Canada proudly won Gold! Congratulations again to Alexandre Bilodeau and Maelle Ricker for winning the first ever Men's and Women's Gold medals in Canada at Cypress Mountain and to Ashleigh McIvor and Jasey Jay Anderson for following up with their inspirational Gold Medal wins on our Mountain!

Our Cross country Ski Trails will be open in the lower area and will be groomed but not track set. The Tube Park will be closed but we are working to prepare the Sliding Area for opening tomorrow and will make that announcement in the morning.

We are open this weekend from 9 AM to 4:00 PM and all Alpine and Nordic Area tickets will be 25% off regular rates (PM Rates start at 12:30 PM).

We are working tirelessly to open additional terrain and will announce opening of other Big Mountain Terrain very soon!
