Cypress was pretty decent, put in a lot of runs today. Line up was very minimal which was great. Couldn't use my silver season pass today, but got 60% off though

Bibs are great but unless you're banging through legit pow often, they're a bit overkill.

Stayed at Sun Peaks over Christmas break. Snow was awesome, and although it was cold, it was awesome fun. At one point, it was -30 with windchill near the top. At the top of one chair, the wind was literally pushing us around. Totally not worth freezing my hand to get a snapchat.

Some pics.







I honestly didn't really mind the cold; it just means less people came out. There were literally no lines at any of the lifts till about 11 am, which was sick.

Just got back from manning park. If you're a diamond pro , you'll be okay.. But If you're a noob-semiokay, those chairlifts are fuckin garbage.. My god. Makes cypress lifts feel like a flying magic carpet. They go so fast.. And the staff today were incompetent and fighting over who " helps the ppl stand proper so the chair comes right behind you without trying to take you out "

There was actually enough for some good times. As for the actual marked runs, it looked pretty sad.

2 cm? What forecast were you looking at? Everybody knew it was going to dump all day.

It was a little unfortunate about all the stuff under sky chair; basically a foot of fresh on top of the hardest hard pack. There were some sweet lines to be had on the side of ripcord.
The real magic was happening on bowen, horizon, and humpty dumpty. They totally could have opened them fully,but I guess the creek crossings were what was keeping them.

Didn't have a go on top gun though

Probably one of the best cypress days in recent memory

For years, I've been going to Cypress Mountain and been boarding for pretty long. Once in whistler 4 years ago.
I picked up a new freestyle board (just the board) which is designed for more ground work and buttering.
So a quick question comes to mind, which mountain would you think has more flat and smooth run? Cypress "Panorama" run is not too bad. And the beginner run which I forgot what it's called. The one with a super slow chair lift lol.
Looking at kakucaekz's pictures of Sun Peak, that looks so amazing. Wide, flat, smooth run that's great for buttering and ground work. Even a nice terrain park as well. Although it's quite of a far drive. Maybe I'll consider going with a few friends and stay in.
I don't remember any runs in Grouse Mountain and I've never been to Seymour.

What do you guys think? Any inputs would be great!
Thanks

I feel like buttering and ground tricks you can do at literally any mountain. Grouse has the cut, which is just one long green run. And besides that single steep section where the jump line is located its a pretty easy grade.

Cypress as both panorama and collins.

Fuck seymour.

Whistler is just a massive playground. I mean seriously you could spend days up there and have fun absolutely everywhere.

Big white is sweet. They usually have a sweet small rail line which is fun to learn presses and butters on. Also tons of terrain here as well.

Havn't been to sun peaks in a few years, i'm, sure its good though.
