Cruisin’ the Castle Card Sale EXTENDED

Cruisin’ the Castle Card Sale EXTENDED

Things were a little chilly over the first half of the Christmas holiday season but, after nearly 2 meters of cold smoke powder, temperatures have rebounded to more seasonal levels. Castle is nearly 100% open through the second half of the holiday break and conditions are on point!

Forecast through to the end of the holiday break, January 7.

Cruisin’ the Castle Card sale extended

If you were looking for another excuse to get yourself out to the resort, we’ve decided to extend the sale of our Cruisin’ the Castle cards through to end of day, on January 7. Once that date passes us by, the card will no longer be available for purchase until next season so you’ve got to get yourself out here! You can pick up your card at Castle Mountain Resort Guest Services or upgrade, free of charge, to a direct-to-lift card which means you can skip ticketing line ups for the rest of the season.

Card Benefits

Purchasers of our card will enjoy their 1st, 4th, and 7th visits to Castle absolutely free, in addition to $20 off any other day this season. Card holders are often stoked to know that their card will net them a $20 discount on a full day ticket at the Lake Louise Ski Resort, as well as $40 off cat skiing with Castle’s Powder Stagecoach cat ski operation.

Doing the Math

To help you out with the math, by the time you’ve reached day 4 on your card you’ve only shelled out $188 dollars or, put another way, $47 / day (based on the JR / SR card). That’s a far cry from the $74 posted rate at our ticket windows. The long and the short of our card program that, outside of buying an early bird season pass, it is your best deal to ski / ride at Castle Mountain Resort this season. 

How Can I Buy?

For starters, you should really get yourself out here before the new deadline of January 7th. Cruisin’ the Castle cards are available at Castle Mountain Resort Guest Services, through to end of day on Sunday. If you really can’t get out here (did we mention conditions are awesome?) then you should definitely visit one of our partner retailers across southern Alberta or Saskatchewan. You can click here for a list or you can buy online with just a few clicks at!

      Hi Fritz,

      Thanks for your message through Conditions are excellent across the resort right now, despite a day long Chinook that rolled through yesterday. Overnight last night we received nearly 20 cm’s of snow with more in the forecast before the weekend. For up to date conditions you can follow along via our Snow Report which is updated by 5:45 AM each morning. Click on for all the latest. While Friday is still some distance away, it’s currently calling for colder temperatures (-15 as a high), and overcast skies with flurries throughout the day.

      Hope to see you here!
