Disclaimer: I received this Snowshoeing Cypress Mountain experience in partnership with my ambassadorship with the Healthy Family Expo. All opinions expressed are 100% my own!
I’ve walked up hill both ways with snow up to my knees in -45 weather and lived to tell the story. I’m kidding but not really! As I’m originally from the prairies, I have braved some of the coldest deepest snows in my day that my girls will probably never see here in Vancouver. Normally I don’t go to the cold on purpose but there is something about snowshoeing Cypress Mountain to a destination that includes both Cheese AND Chocolate fondue that screams,” YES PLEASE”
This past Tuesday night a group of us lovely media type took to Snowshoeing Cypress Mountain. We enjoyed a 4 hour guided tour to Hollyburn Lodge for all the cheese and chocolate fondue we could handle. There were laughs, a few tears from laughing so hard, a great exercise and happy bellies. Some of the most fun I’ve had in a while!
Our tour guide took us through Cypress Bowl by the light of our headlamps teaching us about the tree’s in the area along the way. As a prairie girl, I am not necessarily as knowledgeable in the different type of tree’s in our region here, however, I am now confident that I wouldn’t completely be lost up on the mountain if something went sideways.
The hike to the lodge was roughly an hour long followed by 2 hrs of glorious fondue! The meal associated with the hike includes hot beverages, green salad, cheese fondue and a chocolate fondue for dessert! There is also beer and wine available for purchase! After you’ve indulged all that you can, you venture out into the snow for the final hike down to your original arrival point!
