Vancouver, British Columbia continues to get set for the 2010 Winter Olympics. So Cypress Mountain, one of the event's key venues, is adding to what is already the best little mountain in the region.
New for this season are nine new runs, which expands the current terrain by 40 percent. There's a new high-speed quad, and a state-of-the art snow making system, too.
"Hey, it was good before," says local rider Reid Malley, "but that new chair is going to be sweet. The old one took forever and I think you'll see lots more people riding that side of the mountain just because they can get up and down quicker."
