Cypress Mountain has re-opened their Lights to the Lodge Snowshoe experience.
offers a safe and easy one-kilometre snowshoe trek to the historic Hollyburn Lodge
along a self-guided trail through the enchanting Old Growth Forest." - Lights to the Lodge // Cypress Mountain
The trail is covered with LED fairy lights that help guide the way through the forest of old cedar and fir trees to the lodge. At the lodge, you can refuel yourself with a hot chocolate and a snack before venturing back to the base through more LED lit forest.
Cypress Mountain has worked hard to create a safe, distanced environment to allow Vancouverites an opportunity to enjoy the beautiful Christmas light display through the forest. In order to maintain a distanced flow of snowshoers, tickets must be pre-purchased online. Tickets are sold in time slots starting from 4 pm daily with the last start time at 8 pm. The enchanting walk is a one-way loop to prevent overcrowding, don’t worry though, the walk back to the Cypress Mountain Lodge is equally as beautiful.
Make sure to book your ticket in advance, as the festive season is bringing high demand for this breathtaking experience. You can purchase your tickets
