It’s become normal for locals in West Vancouver to take their surroundings for granted because frankly, we really are spoiled rotten. Where else in the world can you go snow skiing in the morning and then hit the beach in the afternoon? Not only are both locations a mere 10 minutes away from our front doors, but with spectacular city views from up top, and magnificent waterfront sunsets at night – it’s hard not to feel like you live in the best place on earth.

So when we all heard that the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics would be hosted at our local ski hill, the excitement was hard to contain. Many of us grew up on this mountain learning to ski and snowboard and now the world is coming to our door. Planning is well underway and many improvements have been made as the good folks at Cypress Mountain get ready to welcome athletes and visitors to the 2010 Winter Olympics. 

Here’s a quick update from the Cypress Moutain website that will help fill you in on all that’s been happening. I guess the only thing to worry about now is how we’re going to keep all this good stuff a secret in the future.
