Scroll down for the giveaway! Yesterday Allan and I made it up to Cypress Mountain for our very first day of the 2011/2012 ski and snowboard season! In the SECOND week of November! Crazy! Yes indeed, Cypress Mountain was the first ski resort to open in British Columbia and one of the first in North America!

Although the runs and chairlifts were limited, it was amazing to get our first turns in for the season. And with all the fresh snow on top of lots of snowmaking, it made for a fantastic first day. Lots of fun! Cypress also had some boxes and jumps set up on the side of the runs for some freestyle riding. Can you believe the mountain has opened already! Get your legs ready!

And because we had such a fantastic day on the mountain, thanks to Cypress Mountain we are giving away TWO full-day alpine ski passes!

It's snowing! @cypressmtn First turns of the season!

Winter is coming…

… and I am ready for it!

Winter is one of my favourite seasons of the year… the Canucks are back on, the mountains are ripe for poaching on the good ol’ snowboard, and I’ve been lacing up my skates recently to keep learning how to play ice hockey.

I’m really excited about snowboarding this winter for three reasons: first, I feel like I’m finally starting to progress and get better, second, we’ve picked up season’s passes to the fabulous Cypress Mountain Resort, and third… I’m ready to get back into making movies. As mentioned in previous posts, last year was pretty much a write-off… so we’re going to go hard this year.

Here are a couple of my favourite snowboard movies that we’ve done the past few years to get you all stoked about the upcoming ski and snowboard season!

Are you excited about this winter?
