Some excepts from the media release:

Nine new Ski Runs on the east facing slope of Black Mountain will represent a 40% overall expansion to the Ski Area. This will be the first major expansion of terrain on the North Shore since Sky Chair was opened in 1987.

“Cypress is installing a brand new High Speed Detachable Quad Chair, appropriately named the “Lions Express Quad Chair,” said Joffrey Koeman, Director of Sales & Marketing.

Another… project that is well underway is the New Base Area Lodge scheduled for completion in the fall of 2008. This new lodge will house a Cafeteria and Licensed Pub, Corporate Meeting Area, Retail Store, Ski School and Ski & Snowboard Rentals.

In addition to Cypress Mountain’s $25 Million Dollar Expansion, VANOC is constructing the 2010 Venues for Freestyle Skiing (Aerials, Moguls & Skier Cross) and Snowboarding (Half Pipe, Parallel Giant Slalom and Snowboard Cross).

Included in VANOC’s plans is a New State of the Art Snowmaking System. All the Venues are scheduled for completion by the fall of 2007.

For this upcoming winter season Cypress will have 51 Ski Runs accessed by 9 lifts.

Cypress Mountain is the Official Freestyle Skiing and Snowboard Venue for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. Located in West Vancouver, B.C., Canada. Cypress is only 30 minutes from downtown Vancouver and is proud to continue to provide our skiers, riders and sliders with the most vertical drop, most terrain, most lifts and best snow conditions on the highest skiing and riding peak of Vancouver’s Legendary North Shore Mountains.

The recent cold wet weather has been dumping snow on the upper regions of the big mountains above Whistler. The local hills have had some flurries. On Saturday there is expected to be rain with snow above 1700 metres.
