Corporate discount Seasons Passes for Cypress bowl
 
I was able to pull some strings & I can get corporate discounts @ Cypress, for everyone. These prices are way cheaper than the early bird & "Big5" prices.

So if you were going to get one anyway? Now you can save even more.

These prices are are equal to Mount Seymour, I don't want to dis Seymour.
I'll let all you Seymour guys do that next year & you will.
Honestly, it would be a huge injustice to your selves to pick Seymour out of Loyalty.
Even if you've been to Cypress a couple times & didn't have the best day or didn't like it for whatever reason. Trust me & ask anyone you know, especially the guys in here, I'm sure they've been to both enough to know.

This is an incredible savings & should not be missed out on.

The best day you ever had @ Seymour, isn't even an average day @ Cypress
Cypress is huge & steep!! It has Skychair.

Here is a quick run down.
Seymour: 200 acres of downhill ski and snowboard terrain.
Vertical Drop: 330m
They wouldn't dare say the lift capacity per hour!

Cypress: has 600 acres of downhill ski and snowboard terrain..
Vertical Drop: 610m
Lift Capacity - 9000 skiers per hour
Cypress Mountain has 35 Snow Guns & opens @ least a month before if not more than Seymour.

Well, when I got up this morning I was expecting a whole bunch of stoked riders to be on here?:dunno:
Yet not even a comment.

So hopefully some of the Cypress pass holders from previous years will chime in & explain how much better it is compared to Seymour.

AIRider, Sassicaia & anyone else who can attest to validity of what I'm sayin'
Please tell the masses what you think of the two!!
Even if your on the other side of the world & are never going to get out here, I would be curious to see which one you would pick?
To me it's a no-brainer

Here is a quick run down.
Seymour: 200 acres of downhill ski and snowboard terrain.
Vertical Drop: 330m:(
They wouldn't dare say the lift capacity per hour!:laugh: In reality it's probably between 100-200, & that's being generous.:eek:

Cypress: has 600 acres of downhill ski and snowboard terrain..:thumbsup:
Vertical Drop: 610m:D
Lift Capacity - 9000 skiers per hour:thumbsup:
Cypress Mountain has 35 Snow Guns & opens @ least a month before if not more than Seymour.:thumbsup:

They are all wicked deals but the Silver pass option is the one you should be carefully looking over.
It costs $20 more than the Seymour pass, the limitations couldn't be any better if I got to pick them myself.

To be honest, I can't believe that no one has jumped on this.:dunno: These are prices from the 1990's.

If the costs were comparable and everything else was equal it'd be a no-brainer. As it is, I'm looking at about $800 at Seymour vs about $1200 at Cypress for the family. And that's with the Silver pass, which has restrictions that I'd consider unacceptable. For the Gold, it's about $2000 vs $800. On top of which I take transit to Seymour quite often, and the "shuttle" to Cypress costs $23 round trip vs $10 round trip for Seymour (although I usually get a "season's pass" so it works out quite a bit less than that).

Anyway, the point is that for an individual it's maybe worth jumping on, but not for a family.

timmytard 08-30-2012 10:18 PM

Well that's unfortunate, you fall into a shitty category.
I didn't take the family thing into consideration.

Cypress should have a better deal than that for family's, but I guess that would contradict the corporate thing. :dunno:

How old are your kids & how good are they ability wise?
If they're really young, I'd agree with ya, not worth it.

Snowboarding is not cheap, you know it's going to cost lots.
I'm sure one trip to Whistler costs more than that $400 bucks.

For what you get @ Cypress, that $400 divided up by 4 people.
In terms of value not actual dollars cause I'm sure you get dinged the same.

Think of it in terms of mileage.
2,010 feet (1,730 continuous vertical)
Cypress Mountain - BC, CAN
1,150 feet (some poling required to ski entire vertical)
Mt Seymour - Vancouver, BC, CAN

You are going to get way way more actual snowboarding in.
Every one day @ Cypress equals two days @ Seymour.
Take into consideration the 2 high speed chairs as well as 2 other 4 person chairs. I think that would definitely be worth it.

You may not see it now, but I bet you would if you did.
I also think if you did you would never go back to Seymour. Ever.

Hold off on buying the Seymour one for a little bit.
I think as more people read this, they will also try & sway your decision.
Were all your side & just lookin' out for ya.

never been to either one and couldn't really give a shit one way or the other, but i'm pretty sure Devun Walsh and company would disagree with you...

They ride way up the back out of bounds, all the wicked pictures you've seen in magazines for the last 20 years, none of that is in bounds.

& it's not just a little hike to get there you need snowmobiles.

I bet if you asked him what he thought of the in bounds area, he'd say "I don't know, don't go there".

Check out this article, lots of pics of Devun.

Every pic except one is out of bounds, then if you scroll down to the bottom.

This is the only comment, left in February.

How many of these were shot inbounds? Obviously not City Booter or the QP, but I work there now and recognise none of these locations. I can’t even pick where under mystery chair that shot of Sansalone is.

jello24 08-31-2012 06:13 PM

Damn... wish I saw this before I bought my Silver... from the looks of it you had a $70 discount going for a Silver pass over the early bird rate...?

Shit son...

timmytard 08-31-2012 06:58 PM

Well, hook your friends up & make em buy you beer.:D

That will make you a bit better.:thumbsup:

Today has been a pretty good day so far.
Cypress gets an air bag & I'm just on my way downtown to get a free snowboard.:laugh:

Please stop promoting Cypress. We get it, you like it. You dont have to lose it over someone not buying the pass.

Thanks for the Cypress info, I was about to buy a Silver Pass but I might go this route instead and save some money. Is there any catch? Do you have to pick them up for us or something like that? How did you work out this corporate deal? I'd like a little info on this.

As far as Seymour Vs. Cypress; Cypress is bigger but Seymour has some really cool terrain if you know where to look and they put a lot more work into their park than Cypress. I've had a lot of fun on both hills.

What I'll likely do is get a Silver Pass and then get the $100 late season pass that Seymour offers.

An air big? Who cares? I'd rather they put some money/effort into freestyle terrain. This is just gimmicky.
