It's too damn expensive, 96$ with the edge card, meal 30$ and gas 30$ it's a 160$ day for half a mountain and poo down bottom. But like you said, where else are we to go at this point.

Default $2 bucks to ride the whole mtn & you will be able to try out the air-bag as well

Well, have I got the answers for you guys then.

SKYCHAIR




Come to Cypress tomorrow, it should only cost you $2 bucks to ride the whole mtn & you will be able to try out the air-bag as well.



Here's how it will go down...

To go on the air-bag you have to buy a ticket. The air-bag ticket is the same ticket as the regular ticket, with the exception of a few extra numbers.

When you buy a ticket for the air-bag, you enter the "paid zone".
Once you're in the paid zone you can go wherever you want.

They don't check for tickets @ the lifts, only @ the gate for the "paid zone",
but you'll have a ticket, a $2 ticket, which entitles you to get in.

So all you poor Seymour bastards, best be gettin' your asses up to Cypress.

Cypress has lots of snow, & Skychair should be open tomorrow. It has only been open ONCE for a few hours. So it's pretty much untouched.
As all you Cypress guys already know SKYCHAIR IS THE SHIT.

Long steep powder runs

I don't know how long this will go undetected, but Cypress is the most greedy fuckin' mtn I've ever been to so, THE TIME IS NOW.

If anyone wants to go hit me back, Donutz, Grafta, Kung-pow, I know Cypress real well, you'll get the Golden tour & for $2 bucks I can GUARANTEE this will be the best $2 bucks you ever spent.

Here is a crude scribble of what I'm talkin bout...
Basically once you're in, you're in.

Like any weekend anywhere, it's gonna be a fuckin' zoo up there, so you should try & get there as early as possible.

If anyone comes up there I'm going to be locking 2 snowboards up right outside the rental shop doors with a for sale sign on em & a phone number, Call the number & I should be there in under 10 min.


This will work, I'm so used to sneaking on to mtn's, I tend to catch these things
Once I noticed this happening, I tested it myself. @ three different times on 3 different people.
Bought a ticket for the air-bag & purposely hid my seasons pass to see what they were checking for. Just tickets, any tickets, didn't matter what kind as long as it was a ticket.

Hm, I'd rather take you up on the invite when the season is in full swing. I went to Cypress one day last year and I wasn't terribly impressed. I'm pretty sure though that being shown the good stuff by someone who knows where it is would make a big diff.

FYI, I went snowshoeing on Seymour today. They got a pretty good dump last night, and it was snowing on and off when I was there. I went up Manning to the point where it merges with the Brockton area exit. Couple of things -- first, they've widened that whole area so you don't have that narrow little bottleneck where you're always dodging human traffic cones, and second they've scraped down the Brockton exit so that I think you could get out of Brockton without having to take your back foot out, if you get enough speed coming out.

Anyway, the important thing is that they're finally getting snow. Another foot or two of dump and they'll be able to start running the cats to smooth things out.

Here's a couple of guys today on Manning run, working on their own jump

Went last Sunday. Nice sunny day, decent coverage, a bit scrapey in places but was good to knock the cobwebs off.

Baker would've got a dump last night and this morning. Should've gone today fuck it all

Went yesterday with my buddy, it was an great pow day. They had 30 inches from saturday morning to sunday.

The clouds opened up just a bit for the morning to let some sun in, then it started puking snow just before lunch and all afternoon. No line ups all day, straight onto every lift.

There were a couple spots where you had to take some detours because of lack of base, but you could ride almost anything, they have all their lifts open now.

Looks like it's dumping a lot more snow on the north shore than was forecasted.

Seymour announced they're opening tomorrow, Cypress starts night riding tonight, and hopefully Grouse will announce they're opening more runs soon.
