Hear the soft swish of your skis cutting brand new lines in feather-light powder. With each turn, an arc of snow shoots up as you fly down the tree-lined slope in the morning sunshine. The ice glitters on the evergreens, against a backdrop of white peaks ablaze in the sunshine. You feel like you’re living a moment from a glossy ski magazine.
Alberta is one of the few places on earth blessed with the conditions that create the legendary, airy “champagne” powder revered by skiers and boarders worldwide. Powder addicts can go by snow cat or by helicopter to the backcountry, where pure virgin runs await.
Learn to carve it up one-on-one with a professional instructor or with friends. Experts will meet the challenge of their dreams in the bowls, pipes and chutes of the Rockies. Boarders can strut their stuff on the rails and jibs of the terrain parks. After a blissful day on the slopes, unwind in the lodge for some well-deserved après-ski.
