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.

Should you have further questions or concerns in the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact the ministry’s local Operations Manager, Don Legault. He is available by telephone at 604 527-2236 or by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and would be pleased to assist you.

Thank you again for taking the time to write.
