Cypress Mountain Ski Area is located in West Vancouver, British Columbia and is in the boundaries of the Cypress Provincial Park. It is one of the mountains that make up what is known as the North Shore Mountains. Cypress Mountain was the official Freestyle Skiing and Snowboarding venue for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. In March of 1987 Cypress Mountain was the first British Columbia Ski Area to open its slopes to snowboarding.
