Castle Mountain is one of my favorite ski resorts, in that it has an old-time ski resort feel, where the commercial build-out of other resorts (Fernie, Kimberly, etc.) hasn't occurred. The lifts provide access to excellent terrain, and powder days at this resort are incredible. High winds are the only issue here, which can sometimes affect chair lift operations and result in closures. The T-Bar pub is an excellent place to wind down after a day of skiing, with good food and a solid collection of beers.

Great Hill, Awesome service. My son had 2 leftover passes from last year that he couldn't use because they shut down early due to snow issues. Called today and they will honor them this year!! I'm pretty sure they are not legally obligated but they made a 13 year old boy happy!! Incredible snow and terrain too!!
