WE ARE PROUDLY A CUP-FREE EVENT!

For all races and events, please bring your own reusable cup/container. Thank-you for being a part of our commitment to the environment! 



Description:

This 100% brand new course runs through a beautiful old growth forest, some of the highest views on the North Shore, and has plenty of vertical to work your legs.  All runners start on the lush Howe Sound Crest Trail and climb before turning back towards the ski area where you'll face the grind up to the top of Lions Express chairlift. The Sport course turns for an all downhill finish, while the Enduro continues up with a mind-blowing view at the top of Mt. Strachan before racing back down.


 

Where:

Cypress Mountain
6000 Cypress Bowl Rd - West Vancouver

 

Directions:

26 minute drive from downtown Vancouver. Take the Trans-Canada (Highway 1) westbound towards Horseshoe Bay, get off at Exit 8, and follow the road to Cypress Bowl. Nearing the top of the mountain, there will be a fork in the road, the Alpine area is straight ahead of you. Drive straight into the Alpine area and park. Please carpool if possible.
