Cypress Silver eXtra and other Ski Pass Special Deals

If you want to ski regularly at Cypress the best deal, arguably, is to get a Silver eXtra Season Pass. They come available around mid-February each year. Other great options include the regular Silver and Cypress Gold passes. Below we describe the benefits of each, plus additional options you can purchase with them.

(Note: Cypress ski pass details are subject to change and certain restrictions apply. The details described below are accurate to the best of our knowledge. Check the official Cypress Mountain website though for exact information.)


Cypress Silver eXtra Pass

The Silver eXtra Season Pass is more or less Cypress Mountain’s equivalent of Grouse Mountain’s Y2Play Pass. Both offer Vancouver skiers valuable savings. Most years they also include access to their respective ski hills during the last few weeks of one season in addition to all of the following year’s ski season too.

It’s important to note that, in 2024, unlike previous years, a 2024/25 Cypress Silver eXtra Pass does NOT give skiers access to the slopes in the spring of 2024! In the past the special included access to skiing at the end of the previous season, but not this time!

(Note: The Silver eXtra Pass is different from Cypress Mountain’s regular Silver Pass which is slightly different and described further below. To learn about the Regular Silver Pass instead, scroll down a bit or click Regular Silver Passes.)


Silver eXtra Pass BENEFITS

Benefits of having the Silver eXtra Pass this season include unlimited skiing and snowboarding every day of the 2024/25 ski season except for the week of December 26th, 2024, to January 2nd, 2025 (when it’s usually crazy crowded anyway).

Another benefit of the Silver eXtra Pass is the 20% discount on Cypress ski tickets purchased during the exclusion dates of the week after Christmas.

One more benefit for Silver eXtra passholders is the ability to pay an additional fee to get access to Cypress Mountain’s cross-country ski trails, tubing runs, snowshoeing terrain and the Lights to the Lodge snowshoe trail for the full 2024/25 season. The extra fee is just $75 for next season (which, for that price, is a great deal)!

Lastly, Silver eXtra passholders receive 50% off at any Boyne Resorts, including Loon Mountain, Big Sky and more. They also get a 15% discount at Big Bear Sports and at the Cypress Downhill Repair Shop for repairs, tuning and more.


Grouse Mountain Y2Play Pass

In 2024 Y2Play Passes for adults cost $299 for existing Grouse Mountain passholders and $429 for new purchasers. New passes for seniors start at $189 and for children they cost between just $39 and $129. To learn more see our article about the Y2Play Pass.


2025 Silver eXtra Pass RATES

Below are the rates for the 2024/25 Silver eXtra Passes (exclusive of taxes) which became available in early March of 2024. (To learn about the Regular Silver Pass instead, click Regular Silver Passes.)

  • Adults (ages 19 to 64) – $649 (so about $70 more than last year)
  • Youth (ages 13 to 18) – $429 (so about $50 more than last year)
  • Seniors (ages 65+) – $429 (so about $25 more than last year)
  • Children (ages 6 to 12) – $117 (so about $18 more than last year)
  • Little Folk (a.k.a. Skooters) (ages 0 to 5) – $49 (so about $10 more than last year)

Family rates are the same as the above prices minus a 10% discount for all age categories.


Age Category Definitions

Age categories are as of November 1st. In other words, if your child is 5 in February but turns 6 in the summer you have to pay the higher “children’s” rate. If your child doesn’t turn 6 until early November or later, however, and you purchase his or her pass prior to November 1st, you can pay the cheaper rate for 5-year-olds. With passes bought after November 1st, though, a person’s current age at the time of purchase applies.)

Cypress Regular Silver & Gold Passes

In addition to the limited-time sale of Silver eXtra Passes, Cypress also offers regular Silver Passes as well as Gold and Cross-Country Ski Passes at around the same time.


Regular Silver Passes

People can buy regular Silver Passes as of March 4th, 2024.

The regular Silver Pass is similar to Cypress Mountain’s Silver eXtra Pass but with fewer extra benefits and more restrictions. Except for in the case of children’s passes, however, they also cost less.

In the spring of 2024 the regular Silver Pass doesn’t include the bonus of being able to ski for the remainder of the current spring season. You can though pay just $75 extra for unlimited cross-country skiing, tubing and snowshoeing at Cypress.

A significant drawback of the regular Silver Pass, when compared to the Silver eXtra Pass, is the additional blackout period of every weekend in January and February.

The above restriction means that if you want to ski on Saturdays or Sundays during the first two months of the new year, in addition to during the week immediately after Christmas, with the regular Silver Pass you have to pay extra. You have to buy yourself day lift tickets, although you can get them for a 20% discount. For many people though, it’s worth the inconvenience (especially for folk who can ski on weekdays).


Regular Silver Pass Rates

Prices for the Silver Passes in the spring of 2024 are below. The prices in brackets () are what the flash sale prices and regular prices were in the previous season.

  • Adults (ages 23 to 64) – $479 (compared to $419 last year)
  • Young Adults (ages 19 to 22) – $389 ($269 last season)
  • Youth (ages 13 to 18) – $349 ($269 last season)
  • Seniors (ages 65+) – $349 ($229 last season)
  • Children (ages 6 to 12) – $112 ($99 last season)
  • Little Folk (ages 0 to 5) – $49 ($34 last season)

If more than one family member from the same household buys a pass at the same time there is a 10% discount.

Cypress Gold Season Passes

Gold Passes allow ticket holders to ski and snowboard for one full season at Cypress with no restrictions. It’s like a regular season’s pass, but cheaper than if you pay for it in the fall or at other times in the season.

For comparison, with the Silver Pass you pay less but then can’t ski for free during peak times between Christmas and the end of February. If you want to ski during the blackout periods you have to buy discounted day tickets. With the Gold Pass, on the other hand, you pay a higher price but can ski whenever you want.

Prices for the 2024/25 Cypress Gold Pass in early March were the following. (In brackets are the prices from the previous season.)

  • Adults (ages 19 to 64) – $849 (compared to $819 last season)
  • Youth (ages 13 to 18) – $549 (was $489 last season)
  • Seniors (ages 65+) – $549 (was $399 last season)
  • Children (ages 6 to 12) – $319 (was $279 last season)
  • Little Folk (ages 0 to 5) – $49 (was $49 last season)

If more than one family member from the same household buys a pass at the same time there is a 10% discount.


Cypress Cross-Country Season Passes

In addition to the various downhill pass specials, Cypress also offers cross-country ski passes for the following season.

Cross-country passes for the 2024/25 season cost the following in early March, 2024.

  • Adults (ages 19 to 64) – $339
  • Youth (ages 13 to 18) – $209
  • Seniors (ages 65+) – $209
  • Children (ages 6 to 12) – $159
  • Little Folk (ages 0 to 5) – $40

An extra benefit for cross-country season passholders is that they get a 15% discount retail sales at Big Bear Sports.

Also, for an additional fee, passholders can get a “Nordic Plus” membership where they also get unlimited access to Cypress Mountain’s tubing and snowshoeing trails for the full season. In 2024 the cost for the “Nordic Plus” benefit is $59.

Spring Season & Beach Passes

In addition to the Regular Silver and Gold Passes, new passholders of all ages can usually pay $199 and get to ski for the remainder of the current season. Unfortunately, this doesn’t appear to be the case in 2024.

The 2022 Beach Pass allowed passholders to ski between March 14th and the rest of the previous season. In past years there has often been a Beach eXtra Pass with a slightly longer run as well.


Cypress Pass Protection

In addition to the various passes and optional “add-ons”, skiers can also purchase Pass Protection when they buy their season passes. For $50 or so you get a pro-rated insurance policy that protects the value of your purchase should there not be at least 76 days of operation next season.

The way Pass Protection works, basically, is for each day less than 76 that Cypress is open, Cypress will put 1% of the price of your ski pass towards a pass for the following season.
