Downhill Ski Practice on AT or Tele at Cypress Resort

T'was the Day of Christmas, up at Cypress Resort, not a creature was stirring, cuz they're all asleep from food and cheer...

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 for your backcountry adventures?

We will be hanging out, practicing proper downhill form, attempting our survival skiing techniques through a few trees, and just having a good time with new friends.

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 avalanche report.

Feel free to bring treats 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$.
