To all of our Valued and Patient 2014/15 Season Passholders:
The 2014/15 Season unfortunately appears to be coming to a close despite all of our efforts and our heart-felt wishes to have a typical Cypress Mountain winter. The weather forecast looking ahead shows diminished hope that we’ll get enough snowfall to warrant reopening this Spring however, as always, we will remain ready to go and we’ll do our best to get everyone a few more turns and some Cypress Beach action!
We‘re of course disappointed in the season overall and we recognize that the quality of the snow sports experience on many days was not the norm for Cypress Mountain. We made a huge amount of quality snow during the season but got virtually wiped out on four separate occasions with unearthly amounts of rain – one time we had already started pairing up the animals when it finally stopped! Despite the weather, the efforts of all of our Team were 100% focused on providing our guests with a great experience no matter what the cost – we always held onto hope that a dump of snow was just around the corner and for certain we were going to be ready to make the most of it! Alas although it hasn’t come yet we never gave up – in the Downhill Area after we were melted out through February our “Best in the Business” Snowmaking Crew got a window of opportunity to make record amounts of Snow in early March and our Grooming Guys tilled out some fine cord for a great comeback with really good conditions. Almost 1,000 Passholder’s came out to enjoy a complimentary BBQ meal on the Crazy Raven Sundeck – not everyone skied or snowboarded but the Burgers helped to sooth the pain that the weather has inflicted on us all.
In the Nordic Area – we hauled thousands of bucket loads of snow from other areas of the mountain and did whatever we could to try to fortify the snow in the trails but we just couldn’t outrun the rain – we did our absolute best!
Looking ahead we’re very optimistic that this Season can’t happen again soon, so we’re planning plenty of exciting initiatives for a great winter next Season – some were already planned but we couldn’t pull the trigger, and some are new that we thought up as we watched out the window waiting for snow clouds to appear. It’s going to be even more Fun next year at Cypress Mountain in addition to simply enjoying the Most Lifts, the Most Terrain, and the Most Winter Sports on the North Shore and we can’t wait.
Looking ahead to 2015/16 our State of the Art Snowmaking System in the Downhill Area and our Season Pass Assurance Program give you the confidence that Cypress Mountain will offer you the best value for your local Season Pass investment.
We wish to explain below the benefits of our 2014/15 Season Pass Assurance Program and what it means to each of our Pass categories relative to our season end assessment of overall operations this year.
Downhill Area Passes – 80% Discount off your 2015/16 Pass if you purchase by our Early Bird Deadline – please read below:
Although we have managed to operate the Downhill Area for 84 days so far (many with just partial day operation) and 24 days on the Cross County Trails we recognized in the development of the Assurance Program a year ago that there would need to be some Passholder expectations applied to the terms and conditions.
In the Downhill Area we had described 2 Quad Chairs operating for seven hours as constituting a day of operation. According to this requirement and not counting an additional 37 partial days of operation since November 15:
- for the G8 Pass Category we operated for 47 days of the assured 100 days, entitling a discount of 53% on the purchase of a 2015/16 G8 Pass;
- again not counting the 37 partial days, we operated 28 days of the assured 76 days for the Silver Pass Category entitling a discount of 63% on the purchase of your 2015/16 Silver Pass.
We are proud of our efforts to provide some great days of Skiing and Riding through the season despite the overall lack of snow, however we recognize that the variety of trails and off-piste opportunities that we normally provide were not always available.
In consideration of this, and with the support of Boyne Resorts, we are very pleased to Bonus up our Season Pass Assurance offer to 80% off the purchase of 2015/16 Passes for both G8 and Silver Pass Categories if purchased prior to the Early Bird Deadline. We will offer the 80% discount off our already discounted rates for both our Spring Sale (deadline May 31st), and our Early Bird Sale (deadline September 15th). Take note that after September 15th we will revert to the 53% discount for G8 Passes and 63% for Silver Passes according to the specifics of the Season Pass Assurance Program.
2015-16 Silver passes are $65.80
2015-16 Gold passes are $119.80
Went to whistler today. Sunny as fuck, my face is sunburnt, and the jumps in choker park suck. Black park was closed for a contest. Saw Max Parrot and McMorris throwing down which was so amazing. Overall decent day. Its worth going if you feel like riding park on whistler and you don't have to pay full price for a lift ticket, but most of the mountain is VERY bare, and blackcomb is closing tomorrow.

Went to Blackcomb yesterday.
No waiting for any lift.
Nuked my face in the sun.
Spent all day on Spanky's and the glacier.
Fresh lines (WTF!) on Horstman's bootpack and Ladies First).
Had beer and waffles for lunch.
Went to Whistler last weekend and enjoyed a perfect bluebird day with spring conditions. As shitty as it is that it was all I got to do this year, I'm glad I got SOMETHING in. I feel like I at least got it out of my system enough that I'm ready for summer now. Bring on the hiking.
I've done both, grew up on skis and switched to boarding for a few years before switching back. I'd suggest looking for someone that's around the same size that might just want to straight trade you their ski gear for your board gear.
