At only $79 / adult or $59 / child, this experience involves a scenic chairlift ride up the Huckleberry Chair, a ride in Castle’s Powder Stagecoach snowcat, and a food and beverage voucher!

Saturday is shaping up to be a real beauty and you won’t want to miss out on the spectacular mountain vistas that this tour provides!

Whiskey Jack Rail Jam

We’ve got a couple of features set up on lower Whiskey Jack. Check them out!

DJ Phenomenorm (Saturday – T-Bar Pub)

While it’s rare to see Saturday music in the T-Bar Pub, we’ve got DJ Phenomenorm playing for a special Saturday at Castle. Our friends from the U of C Ski & Snowboard are here this weekend and we thought we’d show them the best of Castle Mountain Resort. DJ Phenomenorm hits the T-Bar Pub at 10 PM.
