Castle Mountain Resort, Canada:

Castle Mountain Resort (CMR) is the real deal.  It is Alberta, Canada’s snowiest winter resort and second largest at 3,592 acres.  Located just 2.5 hours from Calgary, it is the only area in Alberta with drive-to, ski-in/ski-out accommodations.  Visitors can book a stay at the Castle Mountain Ski Lodge & Hotel and/or find a variety of dining options in Castle’s mountain village. The resort is known for the best continuous fall-line in Canada and no shortage of powder (350 in, 900 cm’s annually).  2,833 feet of vertical are sure to get your legs burning with close to 100 trails and 8 delicious alpine bowls.  Castle Mountain’s real strength is its appeal to advanced and expert riders. The area holds lots of steeps, glades, mini moguls, chutes, and cliff bands where freshies last for days.

If that wasn’t enough to put Castle on your list, they offer Alberta’s only resort-based cat-skiing operation, the Powder Stagecoach. This resort-based wilderness adventure uses the Huckleberry Chair and a snowcat to take guests to 2,000 vertical and nearly 900 acres of untracked terrain.  Castle’s cat skiing combines the best of both worlds; pristine, untouched glades and bowls with all the amenities that one would expect.

The area itself has an old school vibe and is ideal for those who enjoy skiing and snowboarding without the extra frills. If you are chasing powder on a big road trip, the only thing better than experiencing the superb hospitality at Castle is doing it for FREE.  Pass holders from any participating Powder Alliance resort receive three (3) days at all the rest.  That’s 45 tickets each winter!  Tickets are free midweek, half price on weekends, and regular price on major holidays.  This offer applies to top-tier, anytime passes only priced above $349 and not midweek, spring, or other restricted options.  Restrictions apply and all tickets must be used in the same season as the accompanying pass.  Guests are encouraged to visit for a complete list of participating resorts and restrictions.

Experience 16 different mountains next winter for the price of your home resort’s anytime season pass.  There are no membership fees, no collective pass prices, no additional charges of any kind.  Guests simply show an anytime 2018/19 season pass from a participating Powder Alliance area and receive skiing benefits at all the rest.  In 2014 the Powder Alliance was proudly named Best Season Pass Program by Ski Area Management magazine.  Go explore 3,200 acres at Silver Star, BC, dive deep into 900 inches of fresh snow annually at Kiroro, Japan, or ride all summer at La Parva, Chile.  All these benefits are FREE to full, anytime season pass holders of participating Powder Alliance resorts.
