Snowmaking Expansion on Mount Strachan

Winter 2021/22

Cypress Mountain is extremely pleased to announce a significant expansion of our State of the Art Snowmaking System!  This expansion will provide a big boost for early season-opening and an ability to refresh and/or maintain our main ski runs during the season.    

Cypress Mountain has made significant investment in our facilities over recent years, notably our new Eagle Coaster activity, continued expansion of snow making coverage, upgrades in more sustainable night lighting, and our new "Lights to the Lodge" snowshoe experience.

We are currently in the process of finalizing the installation for our snowmaking expansion on Horizon and Humpty Dumpty Ski Runs.  This investment provides us with top to bottom snowmaking coverage on two new alternative snowmaking routes down Mount Strachan – Plus this investment will enable us to make snow on our Sunrise Terrain Park.
