NORDIC AREA SCHEDULE OF EVENTS:
Long before the term “Cross Country Skiing” was started, the sport of downhill Skiing was being enjoyed on Hollyburn Mountain dating back to the 1920’s when our historic Lodge was first used as a Ski Camp. As part of the Canada Ski and Snowboard Festival, the Cypress Nordic Area on Hollyburn Mountain is planning a full slate of events to celebrate being Canadian, the enjoyment of modern Nordic Skiing and Snowsports, and the long time tradition of Skiing at Cypress Mountain!
