Throughout 2016, West Vancouver developers British Pacific Properties have been moving through public presentations of their plans to develop Cypress Village, a small Whistler style village area in the immediate vicinity of the Godman Creek boulders at the base of Cypress Mountain. BPP has engaged the climbing community for input into the village as to how it might affect the bouldering, and the long range outlook is excellent!
This summer CASBC reps attended two invitational workshops as part of a focus group discussing the existing and potential recreation opportunities surrounding the Cypress Village & Godman Creek boulders. The village development will be a long process lasting many years, but climber relations with BPP are excellent and we are excited that most of the bouldering will actually be embraced as part of the 'active lifestyle' the village hopes to endorse.
