Vangruver mentioned it a page back. Unless cypress really did get 115 cm.... haha but I don't think so. I'm just waiting for seymour to open... but if it doesn't happen within the next week, i might end up going to cypress. CMOOOOOOOON seymour!

it's a ageless tactic that mountains do in order to falsify their base measurements.

cypress takes snow that falls onto 3A and 3B lots all the time to falsify their base measurement.

i see, i should have specified i was refering to the turning and carving and edge work being similar to skating on ice and not the pushing part lol

too poor. going to buy the gold medal card with less $5 coupon code, then since its still discounted lift tickets because the mountain is not fully open ill buy a day lift. Unless they plan on opening the whole mountain by saturday.

Or ill go to seymour if they open since I have a pass anyways. Just need a fix asap from any mountain.

Picked up the $5 less coupon at Comor last night. Going to get the gold medal card on Saturday and pick up a discounted day pass too unless the whole mountain is open too.

Anyone know how the snow is?

^ depends on if by saturday the whole mountain is open. if its open and full price for lifts then just use your free day when you buy your gmc. if not then since you have the gmc you can have the discount lift price with the additional discount from the gmc. btw price increased today i noticed because they opened up lions express for collins run.

Rode grouse today...it sucked, but it was awesome. Fun jib line, pretty quiet too. They have a good amount of snow coverage up there, so I bet this weekend they will open some stuff.

I haven't boarded in about three years. But, when I did I was half decent. I could do blacks no problem.
Thing is i'm going to go with the girlfriend who has only boarded once, but is actually pretty good for only going once.

Is it worth going to cypress or grouse vs seymour? I am essentially going to be teaching her the entire time as we are planning a group trip to Whistler so she wanted some practice.

I don't think i've ever gone to Seymour and I know it's the smallest. Would you guys suggest just going to seymour or would it be worth the extra money to go to cypress/grouse?

Thanks.

From what I've seen from the past three years, boyfriends love teaching girlfriends at the Cypress bunny hill. Couples everywhere on that run. Just today practicing switch i count ~4 couples just buttsliding on the way down Easy Rider.

Besides the couple-friendly nature, Easy Rider and Collins are probably the best green runs in the city. Easy Rider has a nice slow lift, good big runout, lifties that pay attention when you fall, and a nice wide mellow slope to practice falling leaf in. Collins is just as great, just as mellow, and just as wide as Easy Rider, so right there you have 2 great runs to teach and progress in. Plus, Collins has a nice varied slope, with an uphill that teaches you to NOT slow down unless you want to do the Walk of Shame, a fairly steep (for beginners) hairpin turn and then a nice mellow slope to do ~100 skidded turns in.

Go with Cypress if you want to learn/teach riding.

Wow, thanks for the information. I appreciate it.
You definitely sold me on Cypress.

My girlfriend and I were even talking about how she had trouble with the chair lift. That's going to help her out a lot.

Thanks

Yeah, you can request for the lifties to slow down the lift at Easy Rider which they usually grant, although she might as well get used to the regular speed that the lifts offload at.

You just have to call it out as you approach the ramp if you want the lift slowed down. Otherwise theyll just let you off at the regular speed.
