Yes, there's less vertical at Cypress, it's not up in the mountains like
Whistler, but it's big enough for a skiercross course. Snow is another
issue, as lal correctly points out.

There's really no excuse for picking a venue where you have to truck in
snow in February.

Indeed. The base is at 910m above the Sound.
Their annual snow totals look good,
but they don't mention the annual rain totals.
