The plan is to take advantage of the Cypress Mountain group rate season pass pricing while working on downhill ski techniques for back country touring. With great contribution of Ben Waller and Mark Snaterse, we had a very successful program working on ski techniques last year. We have just started getting organized for potentially a similar program this year which will take place at Cypress Mountain. In order to not miss the extra discount, subject to registration before October 5th deadline, we would like to ask those interested sign up on iCal so we have an idea about the group. Cypress requires minimum of 20 people signed up to authorize the early bird group discount. The product we are looking to is Bronze Pass at $269 (updated Spet 15 - Cypress had a typo in their price list and had $296 instead) discounted price (Regular price is $326) for Wednesday nights skiing. We would meet around 6:00pm and ski for 3- 4 hrs. The pass is valid for entire season and we would use few of those nights (potentially 5 to 10 nights) for instruction nights. You are also welcome to join the group even if not interested in the training nights. Please sign up by Sept 21st so we have enough time to get organized prior to the Cypress Oct 5th deadline If you have any question, please don't hesitate to contact me at

Update on Sept 15: The correct rate for Bronze pass is $269 for adult pass, it was Cypress typo on their info pack for group discount
