Sports & Recreation

Winter in the South Canadian Rockies is a magical season when snow-covered mountains seem to burst straight up into the sky. Ice fishing, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, fat biking and skating are all easily accessible.

If you’d rather hit the slopes, there are several options available: downhill at Pass Powderkeg or Castle Mountain Resort, or for those looking for a challenge, backcountry telemarketing, alpine touring, or light touring.

If trail riding is what you’re into, we have you covered with hundreds of groomed and ungroomed kilometres of trails. Crowsnest Pass and Castle Parks is a snowmobilers’ paradise and is regularly recognized for its world-class sledding experience.

For all sports in the backcountry, be sure to check the avalanche and weather conditions before heading out.
