Ski or Snowboard The Local Mountains

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

Experience hosted by Paul

  1. 6.5 hours
  2. Hosted in English

What you'll do

Escape the city and hit the local slopes for an action packed, adrenaline filled day on the local ski hills.

At 08:45 AM I will collect our guests from downtown Vancouver and set off in our private Mercedes Benz Sprinter van on the short but scenic drive high into the Vancouver mountains. Arriving at Cypress Creek Lodge, I will arrange the ski passes for you and offer some expert local knowledge on the best areas to explore. If you do not have your own ski/snowboard equipment or ski clothes I will help organize all the extra rental equipment needed to ensure you have a great day on the mountain.

All levels are welcome at the mountain, with a wide variety of runs and terrain to suit everybody from beginners to expert. You can enjoy wide open groomed slopes, tight tree runs and epic forest explorations, moguls runs, fresh powder lines (fingers crossed) or a day in the park.

If this is your first time skiing or snowboarding I can help you get started with some basic tips and pointers before you head up on the ski hill on your own. 90% of people are able to learn the basics on their own within a few hours if they stick with it. Alternatively, if you think you would like to join a group lesson I will be happy to help you organize one as I am not permitted to give private lessons on the ski hill because I am not employed by Cypress Mountain or covered under their insurance.
Other things to note
EQUIPMENT RENTAL IS NOT INCLUDED. Rentals are extra cost. Guests should bring a warm base layer, any ski or snow gear they may have, extra cash, camera, snacks. There is a restaurant on the mountain.

Paul will go above and beyond to make sure you feel comfortable and get to enjoy the trip to it's full. It was evident from the very beginning how thoughtful he is and knows what he is doing. Just book the trip, relax and enjoy the mountains; Paul has got everything else taken care for you.

Paul was extremely helpful from the beginning to the end of the trip. He is very nice! Paul will do his best to make sure that everyone has everything they need to have a great time up to the mountain. With a big smile on his face, he will take care of everyone’s needs. Equipments, tickets, his spacious and comfortable van… It was my first time snowboarding and Paul was very patient and attentive to me. And he did a great job teaching me the basics and brought me all the way to the lifts. After that, I had a blast! :) He will get everyone’s contact and make sure we are doing good during our time there. I highly recommend his job! He is great!!! Thanks again Paul!

It was fantastic experience go on the tour with Paul. He is being very professional and friendly. Try to accommodate everyone’s needs. We had a good snowboarding day and saw the sunset from the mountain as extra.

So my partner and I went for a day trip with Paul to try skiing for the first time. As 2 blow ins from Ireland we really didn't know what we would be expecting and while the time on the mountain was fun it was Paul who really made the trip. He took the time to make sure we we're properly set up and I'm pretty sure he took us out on a day that he was going to take off. Paul was informative and helpful offering tips about living in Vancouver and I'm very excited to get back up the mountain again after going on the experience.
