What's happening in Vancouver? Vancouver snowboard and ski season has officially kicked off

For the fifth year in a row, the local mountains opened in November to kick off the ski and snowboard season for another year! Saturday marked the official opening weekend for Grouse Mountain and Cypress Mountain with blue skies, impressive snow coverage, and smiling faces.

 

Now, going into the second week of skiing and boarding, the mountains are slowly opening more terrain thanks to colder temperatures and advanced snow-making capabilities.

Grouse Mountain has opened its beginner run area, as well as the Peak chair (open until 4pm), which takes you to the very peak of the mountain and offers an astounding view of the city before you shwoosh down the slopes back to the chalet for a pound of fries. For the daredevils, Grouse also has their jib park open with 5 features that’ll keep you happy for hours. 

 

Cypress Mountain boasts a bit more open terrain with the Eagle Express Quad running from 9am – 4pm with three runs open top to bottom for all your skiing and snowboarding pleasure!  Cypress also has a terrain park open with 6 features to slide, grind, and jump over.


Now is the time to check out Grouse or Cypress Mountain as prices are incredibly low thanks to such an early season start. For a full day lift ticket at Grouse, you’re paying $40. While at Cypress a ski ticket will cost you $42.

If you’re not into early season skiing, this is just a perfect reminder to tune up your ski/snowboard before the winter truly kicks off!
