Castle Mountain Resort, as we know it today, was re-birth as a result of community members banding together. Therefore we’ve made it our duty to give back and support our local community wherever and whenever we can. Our staff and members have been very fortunate to work with some amazing organizations throughout the years.
The Castle Mountain Community Association represents members of the community at Castle Mountain Resort.
We are avid skiers/snowboarders, and outdoor enthusiasts who recreate in the area year round and are interested in the well-being and stewardship of the environment on the Westcastle River.

Disabled Skiing Program
You might have noticed a lot of smiling faces in the lift lines on Saturday mornings. If you have, you’ve probably seen a great group of people who take community involvement and inclusion to a whole new level.
Those people are the Lethbridge Chapter of the Canadian Association of Disabled Skiers. Volunteers work to ensure that people of all abilities safely get on the lifts and down the mountain. The disabled skiers they hang out with love skiing every bit as much as the rest of us do. The squeals from the whole gang as they cruise down the mountain are a testament to how well something works when your heart’s just in the right place.
The Lethbridge Zone of the CADS has been running for 28 seasons at the resort. Volunteers of this program have experience with most disabilities. If you’d like more information or would consider volunteering, feel free to contact them.
For more information, contact Darryl Medoruma at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 403-327-7956.
SnowKids Next Door
Since its inception, we’ve reached over 9000 children throughout the region to join in the SnowKids Program. The program was created to encourage children & families to keep active in the winter and participate in winter snow sports in a fun and cost effective environment.
The concept’s simple. All children enrolled in grades K-6 in the eligible area are given a Season Pass from Castle Mountain Resort and ATB Financial (valued at $295) for only a $5 administration fee. The pass entitles the children to free skiing/riding for the entire winter season, no blackouts or restrictions. Children and their families are encouraged to come to the mountain together and use discounts and coupons provided in their SnowKids Next Door package.
How does it work?
We have partnered with local schools in the Livingstone – Macleod Area, & Okotoks – High River area and will be sending information home through their schools. Watch for a letter from Castle coming home from your student in October or November. To be eligible for this program you must complete a season pass application by clicking here. Your letter will have your School and and a School Code that must be entered.
Once you have registered online you can stop by Guest Services at Castle Mountain Resort starting opening day, during regular business hours to get your picture taken and we’ll give you your season pass, coupons and a small gift.
Why are we doing this?
Castle Mountain Resort is continuing to support a local healthy community by giving all children in the community a chance to participate and try skiing or snowboarding. Castle encourages children and their families to stay healthy and active all four seasons of the year.
Are we doing it this year?
Yes, we are! Back for the 2015/16 season! Participating schools have had packages delivered to them. Some schools have choosen to “opt-out” this year. All passes must be issued through the participating schools. If your school has opted out for this season we encourage parents to ask their childrens schools to participate in the program again next season.
