Well after a bleak start to the ski / boarding season things have picked up! In addition to Grouse’s announcement of a limited opening tomorrow, Cypress will also be opening. From the Cypress Mountain website: “The Easy Rider quad chairlift servicing “Runway” will be open tomorrow, Saturday Dec 13th from 9am – 4pm.”
And from Mount Seymour: “Views of the local North Shore mountains today confirm that the ski season is not far away. With over 15cm of snow over the past 24 hours and more snow in the forecast, Mt Seymour Resort is eager in its final preparations to open once sufficient snow levels are reached. We are waiting until we see how much snow we get over the rest of the week to determine whether we can open this weekend.”
***Post update with breaking news (you can’t say I’m not on the ball today): Seymour will officially open tomorrow as well. “As the snow continues to fall at the resort, word is out on Mount Seymour opening this weekend. An absolute winter wonderland, today’s snowfall has already topped 30cm with a total current and growing snow depth at the base of 63cm.
As such, the Goldie Rope Tow will be open from 8:30am – 4:00pm with lift ticket rates at 40% off the regular night skiing rates. Goldie Rope Tow will provide access to our green runs allowing you to get warmed up for the season. Our expert grooming team is continuing to prep the slopes and more runs and lifts will open as snow permits.”
The discover snowshoe trails will also be open.
All three mountains are charging a discounted rate as a limited number of runs will be open.
