We’ll have food trucks and a fun castle from REMAX to keep you fueled and having fun.
Wondering how it all works? Lots of help is always around from volunteers and even some of our retail partners provide some staff to assist. A pre-sizing area will once again be a feature of Snow Rider so you know what size to look for and avoid getting something that doesn’t really fit well.
All proceeds go to Snow Valley Ski Club and Snow Valley Racing Association.
On February 4, skiers and ski patrollers at Snow Valley Ski Cub will take part in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for making the most snow angels at the same time in multiple locations. The current record is 15,851. Up to 100 ski hills and resorts across Canada will be participating in the attempt at 11AM MST.
Be sure to register at 10:30 am in front of the Lodge.
The effort is being held as part of Canadian Ski Patrol Day, a day that honours the life-saving work undertaken by the 4,500 volunteer ski patrollers providing advanced first aid and rescue services at more than 220 ski areas across Canada. Currently, 58 volunteer ski patrollers provide first aid and medical services to skiers and snowboarders at Snow Valley.
“Canada’s ski patrollers are Canada’s guardians on the snow,” said Canadian Ski Patrol president and chief executive officer Colin Saravanamuttoo. “Helping to break the record for most snow angels is a great way for the skiing and boarding community to celebrate the people who look over them on the snow,” continued Saravanamuttoo.
The Canadian Ski Patrol was first established in 1941 to organize and train a first aid and rescue group to patrol ski hills. Today, the CSP is Canada’s largest volunteer-based first responder organization. In the past 76 years, hundreds of thousand Canadians have volunteered for and received advanced first aid training from the Canadian Ski Patrol.
“Some of these volunteers have put their lives at risk to help keep our skiers and boarders safe,” said Snow Valley “It’s important for us to take part in Canadian Ski Patrol Day and show our gratitude for these amazing people’s hard work and dedication.”

This is a fun competition for kids under 13 to show off their freestyle moves on our beginner terrain park.
Last year there some very talented kids out there doing some advanced tricks. To see the full poster click here. You can still register in person only at Snow Rider Ski Shop located next to Guest Services.
Be sure to join us for Winterfest this weekend, December 9, 10 and 11 including our inaugural Illuminate the Hill, presented by ATB. Click on the image to see the poster.
The last runs to open will be on the south end of Snow Valley: Wish Bone, Southpaw, Old Road and Klaus’ Corner.
Now if only the temperature was a little milder, we could welcome the hundreds of school kids we normally host each weekday!
The annual Snow Valley Ski Swap in support of Snow Valley Ski Club and Snow Valley Racing Association was a huge success. Thanks to all those who consigned and purchased ski and snowboard (equipment and clothing) for helping to raise over $10,000 for each club.
Our local shops also contributed their staff to help with sizing and recommendations. Thank you:
Special thanks goes to Re/Max for their on going support of Snow Valley by bringing their Balloon and Jumpy castle! Plus Street Eats food truck for their delicious food!
