Day 3 - Another nice day at Cypress. Spent all my time taking Easy Rider chair up then riding switch down Lower Collins. Now getting more aggressive riding switch :D

Gave up at 10:45 when wait times became unbearable (10 minutes)

Day 4 - Drizzle stopped before Easy Rider chair opened. Excellent groomers. Almost empty. Longest wait time was 20 seconds.

Now riding switch at full speed cranking into turns :D

I swore I would never go up to Cypress if the Easy Rider was the only chair open. However, since they moved the web cam to show skiers coming down the hill I finally couldn't take it anymore. I went up and rode the world's slowest chair then skied down the world's smallest run with the world's least pitch. Actually had fun. It started snowing quite hard around 12:30 PM.
