I tried snboarding @Cypress in April for the first time, on the last day of the season. I immediately fell in love with this mountain. There are quit a few runs, amazing 360 view from top, nighskiing , great lounge , lots of parking, and affordable prices. It's got 2nd most snow this year, after whistler, comparing to other local mountains. If you have a car, forget about Grouse, and head to Cypress. I especially recommend nightskiing ! I am there as much as I can now!
