Alpine Area Update: 

The Alpine Area is open today from 9 AM - 10 PM with all chairlifts in operation.

Please note: Raven Ridge Quad Chair closes daily at 3:15 PM and Sky Chair closes daily at 9 PM.

This is the most Snow we can recall at this time of year - almost 2.5 metres in the 2 weeks leading up to Christmas! Huge Holiday Season Snow!!!

See the ALPINE CONDITIONS page for further details.

The Nordic Area is open today from 9 AM - 10 PM.

Please Note: We are experiencing very high volumes of people in the tube park during the holidays causing waits for both tubes and within the tube park.

Please see the NORDIC CONDITIONS page for details.

Remember we have a safe, marked and maintained Snowshoe Trail network within the Nordic Ski Area. Cypress Mountain strongly recommends that you stay within the Alpine and Nordic Ski Area Boundaries for all activities at all times - areas beyond the Boundaries are not controlled and many hazards exist - we provide a wide variety of affordable safe activities and services within our Boundaries for all ages and abilities so be Smart and be Safe!
