Cypress closes out longest season ever
Cypress Mountain closed Monday after the longest ski season on record for the West Vancouver resort.
The mountain's director of sales and marketing Joffrey Koeman credited the alpine resort's earliest ever opening on Nov. 8 with the business's successful 2011-2012 run.
"It was the earliest opening in our history and the first resort in B.C. to get open this year," Koeman told The Outlook Monday.
He said it wasn't for lack of snow that the mountain officially ceased its alpine operations Monday, but because customers seem to have switched out of winter mode in favour of warmer recreational activities.
Currently, Grouse Mountain is the only North Shore ski resort left open after Mt. Seymour stopped running its chairlifts April 15.
