Castle's Powder Stagecoach


Alberta's Best Cat Skiing

Castle's Powder Stagecoach takes you on a one day backcountry adventure to ride open bowls and secret powder stashes. Now in its third full season, the Powder Stagecoach is one of the very few resort based Cat Ski operations in western Canada and is Alberta's Best Cat Skiing adventure. Castle's Cat Skiing adventure starts after a quick ride up the Huckleberry Chair where the Cat will climb up Mount Haig to access your personal powder lines in wide bowls, gladed chutes and breathtaking scenery. Come and share our 995 cms annual snowfall across 800 acres of skiable terrain. When you have 2000 vertical feet a run, you will not be short of epic lines. Being part of the resort means that the powder hounds can have the adventure experience of Cat Skiing while other family members play on the rest of the mountain.
