RE: 272492 – Cypress Bowl Road
Dear [British Columbia Mountaineering Club]:
Your email of November 20, 2017, regarding Cypress Bowl Road, has been shared with me. Please accept my apologies for the delay in responding.
I appreciated the opportunity to review your suggestion to open Cypress Bowl Road one hour earlier in the morning to accommodate visitors to Cypress Provincial Park. While the Ministry owns the road, winter maintenance is funded and delivered by Cypress Mountain Resort. I understand the gate at the Chippendale Road intersection is closed until 7 a.m. to prevent unauthorized overnight access into the park. As such, you may want to share your interest in having the road open earlier in the morning with the resort directly.
Thank you again for taking the time to write.
