Downhill Ski Practice on AT/Tele Gear at Cypress Ski Resort


T'was the Day of Christmas, up at Cypress Resort, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse...

When what to my wondering eyes did appear? But backcountry skiers chasing the deer...


Are you a Christmas orphan or misfit? Want to get out on your AT or Tele gear and train before heading out into the backcountry?

We will be practicing proper downhill form, maneuvers such as side slipping, and survival skiing techniques through a few trees.

We will gladly answer questions and give you ideas about your set-up if needed.


Join us on Christmas Day! Enjoy the open slopes, lift access, warm-up breaks inside the lodge, and friends who share your passion to train for backcountry adventures.

Leave the Avi Gear at home, and skip the latest report.

Feel free to bring cheese and chocolate to share.

We are bringing very small day packs with an extra layer, gloves and thermos of tea.


Organizer will use the Planning Forum for additional information as required.

For last minute questions and updates contact me by phone.


Buy a Cypress Resort Ski Pass ahead of time On-line and you will likely save a few dollar$.
