Community Initiative Program (C.I.P.)

Snow Valley is committed to promoting wellness through fun, friendly, safe, year-round recreation and sport for the Edmonton community.

Therefore, to meet the needs of such groups, Snow Valley created a program called the Community Initiatives Program (CIP) which has been running for the past ten seasons.

Snow Valley's CIP is accessible to registered not-for-profit and/or charitable organizations in the Greater Edmonton area.

The mission of this program is to provide accredited agencies and organizations that support youth in need and new Canadians, with an opportunity for year-round, enriching life experiences. As Snow Valley can provide year-round activities through its campground, lodge, and ski/snowboard hill, these will be used according to the needs of each group.

By partnering with other not-for-profit agencies and charitable organizations, Snow Valley is committed to building and supporting a healthy community and moves toward balancing opportunities for all people.

Working with the City of Edmonton through the Winter City Strategy Program, Snow Valley is proud to recognize the opportunity we have to offer lessons to accredited agencies and organizations that work with disadvantaged youth and new Canadians to offer the chance to experience Skiing & Snowboarding at Snow Valley. Snow Valley aims to provide more opportunities for enjoying the outdoors in Winter to celebrate the season and embrace the daily living in the cold Edmonton Climate.

Since 2008-09 the Community Initiative Program has:

  •  <•> Provided 4760 lift tickets, plus rentals and lessons, for groups of new Canadians and disadvantaged youth to come to Snow Valley.
  •  <•> Donated in excess of $855,720.00 in lift passes to various community organizations to assist in their fund raising
  •  <•> Helped collect just over 39 metric tons of food for the Edmonton Food Bank, including 3150kg during 2015-16.
