Snow Day on Cypress, for Beginners

Seems like many of our members are intimidated by skiing and snowboarding. So, if there is ONE DAY that you want to make it out the mountains this winter, this IS THE DAY!

LESSONS, RENTAL, PLUS LIFT

Beginner Lesson, Easy Rider (Beginner Hill) Ticket & Rentals $129 for 2 hours.
Lesson is from 10-12.
Afterwards we can go get lunch
Follow by some personal instructions by me... (which is not that good to begin with actually)
And leaving the mountain at 4pm so in time for more Christmas festivities.

Lift Only

Of course, you are welcome to join us if you already know how to ski or snowboard! Regular lift tickets applies.  Check http://cypressmountain.com/alpine-tickets for detail.

We can do carpools from skytrain stations. Please note if you can drive or need a ride.
