We had an excellent guide who knows what he's doing and what he's taking about. We had a friend who backed out just before half way of the tour because of her of heights. They know how to take care of those people. They made sure that she's calmed down and safe. The steps and the rails for harness is definitely safe and sturdy. There's no reason to worry over accidents although it can happen. The greatest challenge is for those who are out of shape as you need to have strength to lift your body and hike all the way up to the mountain but all the hard work will be rewarded with a stunning view on top of the mountain. A unique experience to those who are trying out adventure travelling.

A quaint ski resort with great value pricing including half-day and night skiing. The lodge is nice and the food is good. It is my favorite hill for early season skiing, when I just need simple groomed runs to find my ski legs and don't want to pay Sunshine Village prices. The terrain is very segregated - all green runs in one section, all blue in one another, and most black runs are accessed via North American chair. This makes it challenging to ski with a group with diverse abilities as everyone will be using different chair lifts.

We went and our 7 year old and 5 year old had lessons for their first time skiing. The instructor was so kind to them and made it a lot of fun. It was also fun for me getting back into snowboarding after a couple of years. The drive up was also a lot of fun and the kids loved seeing the deer that would cross the road.

10 min drive from Banff makes spur of the moment riding possible. Was there on the 90th anniversary and day passes were only 90 cents!
