Cypress Mountain

Enjoy the city life and the slopes? Then look no further Cypress Mountain is for you.
Cypress offers 35 feet of snow in a season and its location right beside Vancouver providing stunning views overlooking Vancouver Bay and all the islands out to sea. Cypress is one of the few resorts in the world where you can combine skiing with the excitement of city living with quick access to Canada’s most vibrant and friendly big City. On a day off imagine sitting in Vancouver drinking a coffee and a 30 minute bus ride later – taking to the slopes. What’s more the night skiing in Cypress is epic with most runs open to 10 pm every night.
Cypress was host to the 2010 Winter Olympics and such saw a huge investment in Lodges and services and the resort is now set up with world class Olympic runs and facilities.

If that hasn’t got you excited then check out our quick stats;

•8 lifts – including Lions Express and Eagle Express High Speed Quad Chair
•Average annual snowfall of over 35 feet!
•600 acres (240 hectares) of unbelievable terrain killer corduroy, sweet tree runs and a massive terrain park
•53 trails – Including 35% Intermediate, 46% Black, and 8% freestyle terrain

During your instructor training you’ll be based at a hostel in the heart of Vancouver.
The Cypress Mountain bus has a pick up one block from the Hostel and you’ll be at the ski lift in 30 minutes. After the ski instructor training you can either stay at a hostel or look to shift into alternative accommodation with friends / other Cypress Staff. Our local partners will be able to assist you in finding private accommodation.
