Full review

While visiting Vancouver, such a beautiful city, I went to Cypress a couple of weeks ago. It was a rather disappointing experience. The cost of lift tickets does not have anything to do with what you get. Terrible terrain. I had to park my car far away and walk (in ski boots) for 40 minutes. No shuttle buses. Staff were rude, unfriendly and seemed liked they are forced to work there. (I surprisingly found out that one of those rude staff was the head of a ski school or something in that matter). In the same visit, I went to Whistler Mountain as well. World class. It is really surprising for me that they are hosting the Olympics at Cypress. The only reason that they are surviving is that they are so close to the City. Skiing in Europe, I always thought the French were rude and snobs. Cypress' staff make them look like angels. I personally think Cypress is a shame for Vancouver, it's such a beautiful city. I won't go back.
