FAQ: Tips for Skiing with Kids

January 5th, 2019|

Original Post: FAQ with an Expert- Tips for Skiing with Kids     Anyone who reads my blog knows how passionate I am about encouraging people, especially children, to spend as much time outdoors as possible. A couple years ago, I shared information I learned in school about the essential movement skills children need to learn. Included in Canada’s list of essential skills is skating/skiing. It makes sense when you consider how long our winters are. If we don’t [...]

Saturday  Nov. 17 Saturday, November 17 Winter has returned to the Rockies and we are going all-out to get ready to kick-off our 80th Anniversary winter season next Saturday.  Taking advantage of the crisp temperatures and snowfall we’ve had the past few days, we fired up our snowguns on November 5 and they are making short work of the lower [...]

Downhill Skiing…At Your Doorstep

October 5th, 2018|

Contributed by Corrie Bubik, Neighbour and Season Pass Holder One evening last winter, I took the upper t-bar to Chinook at the top of Pass Powderkeg for the first time in probably 15 years.

75 Days Until Skiing *

August 27th, 2018|

What's with the asterisk(*)?  We'll get back to that. Ski hills around the world struggle with landing an opening date.  Given our ultimate reliance on weather windows to either accumulate or make snow and pack down a base, it is next to impossible to say when any particular hill might be open more than 2 weeks ahead of time.  However, we will work as hard as we can to get you back on the slopes as soon as [...]
