Weather Talk For BC no matter what you ride

Cypress Mountain 2023/ 24

When it's absolutely too cold

Piling snow via front-loader at the bottom of Easy Rider to be used as a harvesting source. It's one of the techniques for preserving the hill, especially with the forecasted deluge on Monday. You can be sure they're using the same technique for JJ/ Fork/ Panorama, which are off-camera.

IT'S OFFICIAL. We're stoked to announce that Cypress Mountain's season kicks off for Skiing & Snowboarding this Thursday December 7th, 2023!

Our dedicated and expert team has been hard at work this week with efforts to open as much terrain as possible.

At this early stage of the season, we plan to open Easy Rider Quad Chair only from 10:30am - 4:00pm on Thursday and from 9:00am - 4:00pm on Friday onwards. We’re working diligently to get more lifts and terrain open as soon as possible. Stay tuned for further updates on lifts, terrain and night skiing.

During this period of limited terrain availability, we will be prioritizing access for season passholders and Sky Card holders, with a limited number of day tickets available for pre-purchase.

Maybe a good time to tune up my gear before I leave for Onterrible on Friday :cry:

Hoping for snow to accumulate before I return next week

Day 1 - Fun opening day (dumping flurries) riding with LeopardSkin on the bunny hill ... laying down eurocarves.

Excellent day to test out my new rig:
- 153 cm KNWN freeride / all-mountain snowboard
- Fix RB-1 bindings
- Salomon Malamute boots
