Participant Information


Downhill Ski Practice on AT or Tele at Cypress Ski Resort

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.

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 avalanche report.

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