Snowshoeing

Self Guided Snowshoeing Trails

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! If you want to get out and enjoy winter, Cypress has 11 km of safe, in-bounds 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 9 am to dusk.  The last rentals go out 2 hours before dusk.

Snowshoe Etiquette

Snowshoe rentals are NOT permitted to leave the Nordic Area.  While we do allow our snowshoe rentals to be used on the  BC Parks, Hollyburn Peak Trail, once you leave the Nordic Area boundary you do so at your own risk and should be prepared for backcountry travel.
