Snowtubing at Cypress Mtn on Sun, Feb 10th

Join us for a few hours snow tubing at Mt. Cypress! You'll slide down their special hill and you don't have to walk back up - there is a tube tow to save you the climb! Still not sure what snow tubing is? Check out the video on their website: http://cypressmountain.com/snow-tube-park
 
When: Sunday, February 10th. 10am – 2:30pm (2 hours of tubing + travel time)
Where: Cypress Mountain
Maximum # of Participants: 15
Meetup Location:
Vancouver Tourism Info Center at 10:00am (sharp)
(corner of Burrard St. and West Cordova).
OR
White Spot parking lot at Park Royale Shopping Centre at 10:30am (sharp)
      
What to bring: Dress warmly! Dress as you would to go skiing or snowboarding. There is a canteen if you do not want to bring snacks/lunch. We are not stopping on the way to Cypress for anything, so please come prepared.

Costs:
2 hr Tube rental: $17 paid directly to Cypress.

Car Pooling
We will arrange car-pooling on a first come, first serve basis (i.e., if someone RSVPs and can drive 3 people, the first three people who signed up get a lift.) Drivers are usually in short supply, so rsvp early! Please give your driver some money for gas and their time (you can decide a fair amount with your driver.)
 
Drivers are usually in short supply, so if you can drive, it is appreciated.
RSVP to Mike (hike@mokuyokai.bc.ca) by Friday, February 8th. Please ensure your rsvp is firm, as last minute cancels make car pool planning difficult.

Please indicate:
1) Can you drive or do you need a lift?
2) Do you want to meet at the Vancouver Tourism Centre or at Park Royale?
3) Your phone number
4) Emergency contact: name and phone number
 
*Important Note*
This event is weather dependent. If there is heavy snow or rain, it will be cancelled. If the event is cancelled, an email will go out to participants the night before the event.
