Hollyburn Cross Country Ski Club

Vancouver’s Family Cross Country Ski Club at Cypress Mountain

Hollyburn Cross Country Ski Club, based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada is a non-profit cross country ski club run by a volunteer executive and qualified volunteer coaches. The 500 member club follows the Cross Country Canada endorsed Jackrabbit program to introduce children to cross country skiing, fitness and winter fun. Presently we have over 290 young skiers, aged 4 to 18 years, instructed by more than 70 volunteer coaches in the Jackrabbit, Racing Rabbit and Teen programs. The club skis at the Hollyburn Ridge cross country area of Cypress Mountain, located just 25 minutes from downtown Vancouver.

Club Objectives

The club provides families in Greater Vancouver the opportunity to learn and excel at cross country skiing in a fun, convenient and encouraging environment. Children, youth and adults develop the basics of good cross country ski technique, fitness and how to stay safe and have fun in a winter playground.

The club follows the Cross Country Canada Long-Term Athlete Development Model, starting with the Skill Development Program for children, which then leads into either recreational or competitive programs for youth and adults (see our Programs pages for details). Parents are encouraged to be actively involved as coaches, mentors, racers and volunteers.
