This small resort is a bit of a secret from the outside world which is surprising consider the fine, powder quality of the snow it gets and the volume. Considering the care taken over grooming the runs and maintaining the natural chutes and other terrain features, the queues to use the lifts should be a lot longer. But considering the region this resort covers, including a larger area with numerous off piste opportunites, it would take a lot more people to make the slopes of this resort feel crowded.

The backdrop of the Canadian Rocky Mountains is lovely for all, but will be especially rewarding for intermediate and experienced skiers who have the chance to get a bit closer too it on the more experienced and off piste runs.

The town is smaller and quieter but the attitude is that all the amenities of the larger resorts can be rustled up.
