Please note: As recommended by BC’s provincial health officials, gatherings of any kind and unessential travel in the province is not recommended at this time. Please adhere to COVID-19 health and safety measures, including proper physical distancing and frequent handwashing. If you are sick, please stay home. 

Get ready to walk in a literal winter wonderland.

Cypress Mountain is offering a magical snowshoe experience this winter with Lights to the Lodge, an LED lights-lit trail in the Old Growth Forest.

The trail is a one-kilometre, self-guided, snowshoe trek lit with LED lights that lead to one of the most popular Cypress Mountain destinations, the Hollyburn Lodge.

Guests will be able to enjoy delicious food and drink that has been served at the historic lodge for almost a century at the First Lake site.

Joffrey Koeman, Director of Sales and Marketing at Cypress, tells Daily Hive there are a few changes taking place this season to adhere to COVID-19 health and safety guidelines.

There are now added start times with limited quantities of those slots in order to spread out how many guests are visiting. Masks are required everywhere at the resort, and the trail network is a one-way loop to encourage physical distancing.

Hollyburn Lodge has also reduced capacity, physical distancing and other safety protocols, including a tent that has been set up at the lodge for additional outdoor seating.

Visitors are advised to arrive no later than 8 pm to complete the full loop and to review Cypress Mountain’s Nordic Area Conditions for date availabilities and appropriate dress.

Tickets start at $36 for adults. For more information, visit Cypress Mountain online.
