Cypress Season 2020

The local Winter season came to an abrubt end due to the Coronavirus, so I thought I look back at the great season I had. After I started snowboarding at Cypress about 5 years ago I got better for about 2 or 3 years but then hit a point where I was not progressing much anymore. I was just doing blue runs and getting bored by it. I think this season I finally broke that wall and I also explored so many new areas in Cypress where I had no idea they existed and how much fun you can have on this mountain. Here I'll share my top 3 discoveries (togwer with some pictures I took there during the season).

No 3: Slash

This side of the mountain is incredible. I typically start off horizon and then either go straigt and stay on top or turn early into the trees. The regular entrance to slash has an uphill part, so it's better to avoid it as a snowboarder. Inside the trees you can find some great snow and going down I recommend staying between Slash and Moons.

No 2: Glades and Top Gun

Glades from Sky Chair usualy have great snow and are a lot of fun. Then continue down on Top Gun. One thing I like a lot on this run is to try and stay on the right, which has a lot of gladed runs with more snow.

No 1: Moons from hike-up

Discovered it only recently and it requires some effort to get to. Start of Cat Track and then when you go down stay on the right. You'll see a small hill that you can only get up to by hiking up. Once on top this is the view:

Up here I had the deepest snow and some wonderful runs down. You can go towards Moons or stay further on the left going through the woods until you get to Collins. So much fun!

Hope you enjoyed!
