This is one of Canskier.com’s home mountains, familiar to Vancouver skiers and pretty much anyone that followed the 2010 Winter Olympics.

Cypress Mountain provides a great mix of terrain, snow quality, and infrastructure.

Weekday mornings are amazing… Rarely busy and groomed to perfection. That is unless it’s a pow day, but it the crowds are fairly manageable.

Regardless of snow conditions, sunny weekend afternoons however are hell, with massive lineups. If you’re going to ski weekends, get there for first chair and get as much skiing as you can in by 10:45, when the crowds start getting annoying, and by 12:00 they’ll be unbearable. Either that, or show up around 4:00 or 5:00 for the evening session when things start to mellow out.
