Excellent opportunities to interact with the public
Tube Park Attendant (Former Employee) –  North Vancouver, BCApril 29, 2015
My job at Cypress Mountain was very enjoyable. My days included general grounds maintenance of the Tube Park, operating the tow, supervising customers to ensure their safety and enjoyment of the Tube Park and answering questions. I was a member of an excellent team of Tube Park employees which included supervisors and managers. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the public and being outdoors. Unfortunately, due to poor snow conditions on the mountain we did not have a full season.

Working at cypress
Lift operator (Former Employee) –  West Vancouver, BCApril 13, 2014
A typical day you start with the safety talk and go over any questions you have and you are assigned the lift you are working at for the day. You work with one other person as they have to be on the opposite side of the lift as you. All you have to do is make sure nobody is injured when loading and unloading the lift by slowing it down if someone has difficulties on skis or snowboards. You talk to people to pass the time but sometimes the lift is too loud and they cant hear you or they just don't want to talk to you for 5 seconds. A supervisor comes by half way through your shift to switch you from top to bottom or bottom to top and that is the only break you get. You don't get to use the washroom a lot so go before your shift. Most of the co-workers were fun to work with but cypress has the worst management for a mountain in Vancouver in my opinion. Other than the working part I enjoyed going snowboarding before my shift most of the days, it puts you in a better mood before you start your shift.
Pros
free season pass
Cons
no breaks or lunch, minimal staff

A very enjoyable environment, great team atmosphere that was very focused on customer service enjoyed meeting customers from all over the world.
Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Gold Medal Cafe and Nordic CafeJune 22, 2012
Opening the Cafe for the days business: preparing coffee, food (soups, chili, baking, snack foods, etc). Receiving foods from vendors, checking supply invoices to foods received. Serving customers and providing an enjoyable environment through conversing with customers. Creating a process manual for the Cafe on all of the duties required to operate the Cafe for staff to follow. Cypress provided an enjoyable work environment, very much team effort orientated enabling to call on other staff from other areas of the mountain to assist in the operations of the cafe during busy times. The most enjoyable aspect of the job was engaging with customers how came from not only the lower mainland but from around the world as Cypress Mountain was one of the locations for the 2010 Winter Olympics.
Pros
free use of all the amenities at cypress: downhill skiing, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, hiking

It's a shame that the rain came in because I really enjoyed working at Cypress. I was only there for a month but have nothing bad to sy about the place except that the weather sucked.
