Canada's longest continuous fall-line terrain
Tucked away in the southwest corner of Alberta, only 2.5 hours southwest of Calgary, is Castle Mountain Resort. The hidden Jem of the Canadian Rockies. If you like uncrowded slopes, deep snow and long continuous fall-line skiing or riding, Castle is the place for you.
The average snowfall of 911cms (thats 30 feet) per season is known as some of the lightest powder you will find on lift accessed terrain. There is now two mountains to play on at the Castle. There is the old Gravenstafel Mountain which, acre for acre, has the most exciting terrain you will find at any resort in North America. Long, open and steep big mountain terrain is everywhere within sight of the 2,833 vertical feet.
New in the 2006/07 season was Mount Haig.
This new mountain provides the easy cruising terrain that Castle Mountain was missing. These predominently novice to intermediate runs make the Castle enjoyable to everyone in the family. The adventurous can go on the big mountain, Gravenstafel, and the less extreme can cruise over to Haig.
The small crowds and fixed gripped lifts means that there is always lots of elbow room on the slopes. The laidback atmosphere means that you can come as you are and be treated like family not some number going through a turn-style. Castle is a taste of skiing and snowboarding the way nature meant it to be.
