Cypress Mountain Attractions - What's To Come?

Cypress Mountain, where many of the 2010 Winter Games events were held, has once again upped their game by creating another attraction to their world-class facilities.

The Mountain Coaster Gravity thrill ride is set to open to the public in the summer of 2021. According to their website, phase one of the construction has already begun, and phase two will commence after the upcoming Winter ski season.

The Coaster experience will span 1.7 kilometres in length, with over 270 vertical metres descent through the beautiful north shore mountain. The carts can go up to 40 Kilometres per hour at their max speed, however, guests can control if they would like to go this fast with their hand break.

Mountain Coasters have seen huge success at several ski resorts around the world, including one in our very own, Revelstoke.
