Mt. Seymour/Cypress controled rec area dates
So I know that both Cypress and Mt. Seymour operate a 'controlled recreation area' in their respective parks with their associated backcountry parking hassles, paid areas etc.
But spring is here and they're getting to be semi-closed so:
1. At what point do they stop controlling access to the road? ie can we now go up for a pre-dawn snowshoe at 6am or is it still blocked until 9am?
2. Cypress nordic ends the season today. Does that mean I can go cross country ski on the (obviously deteriorating) groomed trails for free?
3. Seymour downhill is now only running on weekends. Does that mean I can skin up the runs and back down mid-week all I want?
What's the official date when these resorts cease their winter license to operate in the 'area'?
