Nordic Area

2016/17 Winter Season

Cypress Mountain's Nordic Area is located on Hollyburn Ridge just 30 minutes from the heart of downtown Vancouver, right at the city's door step.  We offer Cross Country Skiing, Snowshoeing, Tubing and Sliding for guests of all ages and ability levels.  The Cypress Nordic Area has a true winter adventure to offer everyone!



Hollyburn Mountain hosts over 19km of groomed & track set cross country ski trails and 7.5 km of which are lit for night skiing.  Whether you are a skate or a classic skier, a beginner or an expert, there is terrain here for everyone.  With the largest ski school in Canada our experts will get you out skiing in no time.


SNOWSHOEING - Self Guided & Tours 

If you want to get out and enjoy winter, Cypress has 11 km of safe, inbounds self-guided snowshoe trails that run through sub alpine meadows and snowy mountain forests of Hollyburn Ridge.  Our self-guided trails are open daily from 9am till sunset (last rentals go out 2 hours before the trails close).  We also offer a variety of guided Snowshoeing Tours which offer a unique outing and are especially popular with groups.



If you've never experienced snow or just can't get enough, our Tubing Park is for you. Feel the thrill of sliding down chutes in a snow tube and let our tube tow do all the work getting you back up the slope.  For those too small to tube we have a children's sliding area.
