From Evergreen Trail Guide
Cypress mountain has 2 distinct and separate parts to it. The upper mountain is part of the resort and will be operating a lift-assisted bike park in the future. They will not be operating in Summer 2007 due to Olympic 2010 related construction. Cypress Mountain Resort website
The lower trails are outside of the resort and are classic North Shore trails. Cypress is steeper, more technical and rockier than Fromme or Seymour. If you find Fromme boring because it's to easy, then Cypress is for you. There are really no intermediate, or even normal advanced trails here. Yes, it is that good. Trails tend to be natural in nature, a few wooden structures, and features VERY steep rock faces.
How to find it
From Vancouver, BC take Highway One (Trans-Canada) west towards Horseshoe Bay. Take Exit #8 onto Cypress Bowl Road. Before the first switchback you'll see gravel piles on your left, park here.
The trails are rougher and less refined than other Shore areas. They generally hold up well to wet weather, but it can be treacherously slick if it is raining.
Excellent! In that nasty sort of way. Did not get covered in mud and only a few muddy spots. Justin 11:13, 16 April 2007 (PDT)
