Planning Ahead for Winter Fun

November 1, 2022

While we wait (not so) patiently for the winter season to officially kick off, it doesn’t hurt to get ahead of the packing and line up some of our favorite activities at Crowsnest Pass.

At the heart of the Pass is the beautiful Pass Powderkeg (PKK), famously known as one of Alberta’s most popular, family-friendly ski resorts. It is also a friendlier choice for the wallet with affordable rates so that everyone can join in the fun.

Whether you’re a hard-core ski and snowboard enthusiast, or someone looking to enjoy a touch of winter wonderland, there is something for all interests and ages at PKK.

Here is a list of all the things we’re looking forward to – spotted anything you like?

1. Trails for all levels

With 1,000 ft of vertical over 27 trails, PKK is definitely your go-to choice for a day out in the snowy mountains. Ideal for the family, trails run from beginner-intermediate, with free access to our Beginner lift and Discover area, to more advanced on the upper mountain. There are lessons available for all levels, and even a Terrain Park for those of you feeling like trying out a new trick or two.

2. Skiing under the stars

The fun at PKK doesn’t stop when the sun goes down. Enjoy an entirely different experience on the trails when the night lights come on by making the most of PKK’s night skiing runs, which are among the longest in the country.

3. Events all winter-long

Open to members and non-members alike, PKK offers a ton of events through the season. Join the Tuesday Night Uphill Series for a chance to participate in our exciting scavenger hunts, or opt for a Wintervention classic, the Human Dog Sled Races, later in the season.

4. Made for the 'gram

Nestled in the heart of the Pass, PKK brings you breathtaking views of the neighbourhood while being surrounded by nature’s wonders. Don’t forget to bring your camera along as you explore and tag us at #explorethepass #PASSPOWDERKEG.
