Cypress Mountain is opening for the season this Friday, November 13th at 10 am, the resort has announced.

“Our Snowmaking and Snow Grooming team have done a superb job with the recent cold weather and natural snowfall, which demonstrates our continued commitment to our guests to provide the best possible snow conditions whenever possible with the most terrain on the North Shore,” said Cypress President and General Manager Russell Chamberlain.

“On Friday, we will be operating the downhill area from 10 am to 3 pm and then switch to our regular early season operating hours from 9 am to 4 pm for the weekend,” he furthered.

“We will kick start the season easing ourselves back into a winter operation with opening our beginner chairlift Easy Rider and opening the intermediate ski run “Upper Fork/ Lower Jasey Jay” on Eagle Express Quad Chairlift,” said Chamberlain.

There will be limited daily tickets available for all activities and tickets must be pre-purchased online.

On Saturday, November 14th,  Gnarly’s Tube Park will open in the Nordic Area, and limited daily tickets for snow tubing sessions over the weekend from 12 pm to 2 pm and 2 pm to 4 pm to start the season will be offered. Tickets for Gnarly’s Tube Park must be pre-purchased online.

“We have worked extremely hard over the offseason at making certain that we offer the best opportunity for a safe recreation experience and we have the expectation that all visitors will do their part in maintaining a COVID-19 free environment,” said Chamberlain. “This plan will evolve through the season and we expect that we may need to make revisions and adjustments, sometimes day to day, based on the recommendations of health authorities or as we find efficiencies, on an ongoing basis.”

Guests are encouraged to plan in advance and tickets must be pre-purchased online prior to visiting Cypress Mountain.

“It is important that we all respect and follow the guidance and health orders issued from the Provincial Health Officer,” said Chamberlain.

“For the safety and welfare of all our guests and employees we must insist that you avoid visiting Cypress Mountain any time you do not feel well or exhibit and symptoms, if anyone in your household has become ill, or if you have been in contact with anyone who has been tested positively for COVID-19 within the prior 14 days.”
