    This trip is for skiers who are confident skiing blue and black runs.

  • We will be leaving the carpool at 7:00 a.m. so we can be at the top of the Gondola by 9:00 a.m. Please arrive a few minutes early so we can arrange carpooling and depart on time. The group will meet up for lunch at an agreed upon time and location. Bring your own lunch or buy something on the hill. We'll then re-group at the Creek Side Pub at the gondola base at 4:00 pm or thereabouts before heading back to Calgary. Because this is a group event, those who cannot wait for all to ride the gondola together, meet at lunch and at 4:00 PM, are asked to please sign up for another event.

  • FYI, day tickets costs $77, basic rental package costs $40 payable at the resort (not to me).
  • If you want to avoid further line ups, buy your tickets in advance through your AMA membership ($67.64 - adult) or from the hill (10 day mail-out time): online
  • Skiing/Snowboarding activities have inherent risks involved. Rental packages now include helmets.
  • Check the terrain suitable for you: errain.php

    If you would like to drive please indicate in the notes section how many people including gear you can take in your car, as well as what type of vehicle you will be driving. Try to fill-up your gas tank in advance.
