No Snow is No Fun



Waiting for -5C….tick tick tick

How can we be so far into November with no real snow making weather?

Snow Valley, and many other Alberta ski areas, is ham-strung by the mild late fall temperatures.  It was supposed to be a cold winter, especially late December and January, however we were led to believe that November would see it’s share of sub zero digits, as well.

Hopefully there will be snow making in the over night periods very soon.  A dusting of snow is helpful but clear skies would be more welcome.  Keep your fingers crossed.

And your toes…because we’re ready!


Snow Valley Aerial Park

Snow Valley Ski Club is proceeding with building Edmonton’s first Aerial Park, scheduled to open late Spring 2017.

KT-90-SoarDesigned and built by KristallTurm, the climbing structure will be as high as the surrounding trees, have a diameter of approximately 35 meters and feature the latest safety system in the industry.  Over 100 games or challenges on three separate levels will push you to your limits of fun while enjoying the great outdoors in Rainbow Valley.

For more information about the project – visit our Aerial Park page.


No Snow? No Problem!

It’s been a wonky fall: 10cm snow on October 18 and the next two weeks take us from Summer, to Fall to Winter!  In the event that Snow Valley is unable to open in time for the start of your Lesson Program, we do have a plan:

If your lesson program starts on November 19, 20, 21, 22, 23 or 24:

  • You will be notified by e-mail of a cancellation due to lack of snow, a minimum 72h in advance.
  • If you are notified, you can book a make-up lesson in advance for any Sunday at 3p or Monday at 715p throughout the Fall, Winter or Spring Sessions. Booking will be on a first come first served basis.

Keep your fingers crossed (click on the image below for the most up to date weather)…

Week of Nov 14 looks to be best for making snow!

Project Notice & Open House



Snow Valley Ski Club plans to develop a Summer Adventure Activity Area that will consist of a recreational aerial rope park structure. This modular structure will be located within the grounds of the Rainbow Valley Campground.

This will be an exciting and unique facility on which participants will make their way through numerous “games” or challenges throughout the entirety of the structure. The “games” will consist of a variety of elements including rope bridges, log ladders, cargo nets, tightropes, climbing walls, wobbly bridges, etc.

This project aligns with the recreational and wellness-based elements of the City of Edmonton’s Vision and Strategic Plan by providing an accessible facility that will encourage healthy and active living as well as provide a connection to nature. It will also enable Snow Valley to fulfill its mission of providing year-round outdoor recreational opportunities for all Edmontonians. This project was included in the City of Edmonton-approved 2012 Snow Valley 10-Year Master Plan.

The structure will measure 30 meters by 30 meters at the base and 15 meters tall. It is anticipated that it will be constructed in May/June, 2017 and will be operational by July, 2017. The construction area will be fenced to ensure the safety of all users of the Whitemud Park area.

Snow Valley will be hosting an informational open house regarding the project on Wednesday, April 27th from 6-8pm in the new Rainbow Valley Campground Chalet. You are cordially invited to attend.
