We are skiing a Saturday for a change as I wanted to bring my co-worker George up with us today. He doesn’t get Wednesdays off like we do. He grew up skiing Big White, but doesn’t get to the mountains a lot these days with work and family. Having said that, he is also a huge supporter of exercise and mental health. Every week he plays basketball and often hockey too. Great way to counteract the emotional intensity of work and busyness of life. But today, skiing!
I’m not sure why, but every time I come to Cypress I am surprised at how great it is. Equally so today. Nice sunny skies, lovely soft snow and met many great people. A nice fella from Greece, a lovely couple who work for Corrections (they really need outside exercise!), and a guy from Saltspring who was enjoying his switch from snowboarding to skiing. So many great people to get to know.
Since I was a little worried about the crowds on a weekend, we came up uber early to get great parking and first chairs. We immediately headed to Ravens Ridge and got a virgin run down Bennys. At the Ravens chair, Levi the liftie said, “you are my first customers”. Sweet!
The whole mountain was great skiing today with lots of variety. Daniel the liftie was great, and Joel is always SO happy (can I have some?). Cypress has great staff for sure.
Pick of the day: Tomcat off Sky Chair. Employee of the day: Adam in the Crazy Raven. So attentive and friendly! Great apres ski.
Thank you, Cypress for an ongoing fun and therapeutic experience.
