We are having lunch at 11:45 am at the Goats Eye Lodge. Lunch is optional. You may choose to continue skiing or have lunch somewhere else.At the end of the day, we are gathering on the FIRST FLOOR of the Creekside Pub at 4-4:30 pm at the base of the mountain before leaving the hill together at 4:30-4:45 pm. Anyone wishing to have an apre-ski drink at the Creekside pub before returning to Calgary is encouraged to go early but be ready to leave the hill for Calgary at 4:45 pm sharp. Lifts are open until 4:00 pm so please do not expect to be back in Calgary before 6:30 pm. Adult lift ticket price is $99.00 + GST at the hill. If you have the Sunshine discount card, you will get a discount off the base lift ticket price. You may also purchase lift tickets in a 3-pack at Costco. However, once you open the 3-pack you are unable to return the remaining tickets for refund.
Here is a summary of the lift ticket prices on hill and at Costco for this season (GST not included).

A basic ski/snowboard rental package is $47+GST for sport performance gear, $63+GST for high performance gear. It is strongly recommended that you rent gear from the University of Calgary or from a Calgary ski rental shop as it typically is less expensive and can be picked up early in the morning or the evening before.
