Our cat ski operation is sold out for February 22 – 24 departures but a few seats remain available this weekend (Feb 15 – 17). Remember, Cruisin’ the Castle card holders and season pass holders save $40 off our regular rates. Submit your booking request now!

On Friday we’ve got Eaves and Bruns performing in the T-Bar Pub. Starting at 9 PM let John and Walter take you into the night as this duo belt out the Blues and a variety of other genres.

Castle’s Powder Stagecoach revs up again for another early morning departure. Again, a couple of seats are still remaining so submit your booking request before it’s too late! Meeting time is at 7:45 AM.

For the young and young at heart we’ve got face painting and cookie decorating on the go on the stage upstairs in the main daylodge! Takes place between Noon and 3 PM.

If you’re looking to go deep into the night, the doors open for Elk, Run, & Riot’s daylodge event at 9 PM. Music starts at 9:30 PM and is sure to be a rocking good time! Tix are $10 in advance, through Castle Mountain Resort Guest Services, online, or at the door (if we don’t sell out first)!

If you need more to do, why not check out our Last Tracks Snowshoe Tour. Departing from the base area at 2:30 PM and featuring a scenic chairlift ride, trade your skis or board for snowshoes and descend through the forested area of Castle Mountain Resort with this guided adventure. Connect with our Snow School (403-627-5101  X 231) to make your booking.

Sunday, February 18 –

In partnership with The Boarderline, Jib in the Park returns for another year! From Noon to 4 PM everyone’s favorite “no contest, contest” is taking place in the Sidewinder Terrain Park.

Families will want to check out our “Seen on Green” event in the Green Zone. Letters will be posted within the Green Zone and kids will be tasked with finding all the letters that spell a secret word. Once they have the word, they can make an entry in our prize draw. It was a hit last weekend!

On Sunday evening, check out our Night Skiing event presented by United Rentals. The Green Chair will be spinning from 6 PM to 8 PM with skiing and riding available under the lights, thanks to generous support from our friends at United Rentals. Enjoy complimentary hot dogs, hot chocolate, and a bonfire thanks to the Castle Mountain Community Association!

We’ve added a special Sunday Scenic Snowcat Tour to our schedule as a result of YOUR requests! Only a few seats remain available on this one of a kind experience which departs from the base area, at 3:45 PM. Contact CMR Guest Services (403-627-5101) to snatch up one of the last remaining seats. Features a scenic chairlift ride, 2 hour snowcat ride high atop Haig Ridge and through the Haig Valley, and a $10 voucher for the T-Bar Pub.

Last but not least, on Sunday night, the Jib in the Park After Party will take us home. Getting started at 9:30 PM, our DJ will be spinning mad beats as you keep the weekend going into the wee hours of Monday morning.


Monday, February 19 –

Happy Family Day Alberta! Frosty will be at Castle Mountain Resort on Monday from 10 AM to Noon! Make sure to give Frosty a high five when you see him in the base area. As well, we’ll have some craft making going on, on the stage upstairs in the daylodge, between 1 PM and 3 PM. If the kids are tuckered out from a morning on the slopes, drop by and partake in the festivities!

There will be an Instagram Photo Contest.  Take a family day related image to Instagram, make sure you tag #CastleFamilyDay2018 & tag @CastleMountainResort and you can win a prize!

Also on Monday, Castle’s Powder Stagecoach Cat Ski operation will be running, featuring a special offer for the youngins. Special Family Day pricing will be in effect in that, with the purchase of a regularly priced adult seat, an accompanying Junior (age 13 – 17) can cat ski for half price; that’s only $199! Family Day at Castle Mountain Resort is the perfect time to give your teen the once in a lifetime experience of cat skiing.
