Why do you work here: After working abroad for awhile I came home and my mom suggested I apply at Cypress - I've been here ever since. Many things have changed over the years including buildings, chairlifts, ski runs, products and services. We offer WAY MORE NOW but the stunning scenery and amazing team has always been the same and makes this place great! I couldn't imagine working anywhere else or having so much fun day-in and day-out.

Why do you work here: Sharing nature and the outdoors is the most important thing for me - whether that's spending days in the backcountry, sharing a sick photo on instagram, or working in recreation. It's the best way to connect with people, with yourself, and with everything that's out there. It's a spiritual experience which I think we all need as often as possible.

How many years have you worked at Cypress? 13 years
Why do you LOVE working here? The snow, blue sky reminds me of home (WPG) and the amazing people and friendships!!!  
Do you Ski or Snowboard? Not really anymore. For some crazy reason the older I get the more scared of heights I get.  Going to stick to snow shoeing and tubing I think!
What is your favourite ski run? Always stuck to the green runs and completed the odd blue..hahah!!

Why do you work here: Hey there my name is Michelle and I have worked up in the Food and Beverage department  @ Cypress Mountain for the past 13 years.  It is like a home away from home!!! Constantly meeting new people and forming amazing relationship across the mountain. I am a on the go 24/7 type person, love being busy and love the challenges that present themselves in the service industry.    Outside the mountain, I have also found my passion working in the healthcare field with the neurological population in a hospital setting.  I am also a mother to a 5 year daughter who gives me a run for my money on a daily bases, and I wouldn't change that for the world.  Through my work and life experiences, I have become a strong, determined, confident woman that accepts and enjoys the challenges that present themselves every day!!!
