Spectacular views of downtown Vancouver , English Bay , Georgia Strait and Howe Sound are yours to enjoy from 38 downhill runs, both day and night.
A brand new rental fleet for the 2005/2006 season will allow you to enjoy the latest equipment available for rent and professional instruction from one of Western Canada 's most respected Ski and Snowboard Schools .

This new location will allow for more than double the space and you will be able to loop the Power Park on the Midway Chair Lift all day long! We are also going to build a boarder cross track in the new area. Over the next few months we will be re grading the area under midway so stay tuned for photos and updates as we get closer to the Season.
With a whole new fleet of rails and boxes already for the snow, expect more time sliding and grinding in the park. 8 new rails and 6 new boxes ranging from beginner to advanced, of all shapes and sizes, including our new huge wall ride. Exciting changes are in the near future for the mountain.

Over the next 3 years facilities are scheduled to be under construction in preparation. The Free Style Skiing venues are being built in conjunction with a new high-speed quad chair coming soon in the next few seasons. This promises to make the ride up the east face of Black Mountain as memorable as the ride down. Loading will be fast and easy, allowing riders to sit back relax and enjoy panoramic views of Vancouver , Howe Sound and the Coastal Mountains .
Meanwhile, the Snowboarding venues on the Eagle Express terrain will provide improved grading of runs and create an Olympic-rated Super Pipe within sight of the Base Area. A new daylodge, a snowmaking system, upgraded parking areas and an athletes centre in the Cross Country area are all also part of the drive to prepare for 2010.
