Downhill Ski Practice 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 backcountry gear and train for your adventures?

Join us on Christmas Day!  Enjoy the groomed slopes, lift access, and the company of those who share your passion for backcountry adventures. 
Leave the avi gear and skins at home.  Share tips on ski and skinning techniques and gear set ups.

We will be hanging out (distanced, of course), practicing our downhill form, working on our survival skiing techniques through a few trees, and just having a good time with new friends.

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


For last minute questions and updates contact me by phone.

Head up the mountain early to avoid the traffic line up.

You will need to pre-book a day ticket if you do not have a season pass.

Review Cypress Resort's Covid-19 Operational Plan.  Masks can be purchased at the resort for $1 if you have forgotten yours.
