Welcome to the PPK, the perfect place for families to ski and ride!  Opened in 1938, Pass Powderkeg is a delightful throwback to when a family ski day was all about big smiles and exploring, not upsells and lift lines.  We are located in the beautiful Crowsnest Pass in SW Alberta, about 140 km from Lethbridge and just 230 km from Calgary (Directions).  Pass Powderkeg is a community-owned ski area with a vertical of 980 ft, designed for skiers and riders of all ages and abilities where there’s no need to hunt for parking, battle for space on the slopes or a trip to the bank to finance a family ski trip.

At Pass Powderkeg, we have all the amenities without the crowds or the attitude.  We offer:

  • Unmatched affordability for skiing/snowboarding in the Rockies 
  • Innovative Learn to Turn beginner program
  • Full Service Lodge focused on unique culinary offerings and great mountain views
  • Ski and snowboard rental packages (Snowshoes too!)
  • Terrain Park with progressive features 
  • Programming & Events throughout the season
  • Equipment Tuning Shop

Pass Powderkeg is a favorite for parents who want their kids to learn in a safe, friendly environment.  Our mountain is configured around two T-Bars with the connection at mid mountain (where our historic day lodge is located), so parents and children can ski at their own level without getting lost.  There is parking right at the mid-mountain lodge, easy-access lifts and ski terrain that supports skill progression from beginner to intermediate on to advanced.

Oh, and did we mention we have Night Skiing & Snowboarding?  Pure Magic.
