With a bit of a stutter step, we’re off and running!
Snow Valley Ski Club has kicked off the annual Season Pass Sale, however just not “on line”, at the moment.
Please call 780-434-3991 and make your purchase and book your lesson programs over the phone. Operators are standing by…seriously!
Warm Up To Winter (New Fall Session Format)
All Fall Programs are now three weeks in length beginning in December. If the last two seasons are any indication, that will be perfect timing. If the 5 previous opening days before 2015-16 are any indication, we’ll have lots of time to get out there and play before programs begin. You could also book a private lesson if you can’t wait…
Park Patrol is for those wanting to learn how to use the terrain park and complete tricks under control and safely. Available for both skiers and snowboarders it is offered in separate sessions or a full 10 week course running January to mid March. All sessions are 2 hours long so there’s lots of time to learn and get to know everyone.
A full season program running each week at 1:30 pm is tailor-made for those able to get out during the day and get some turns under the direction of a CSIA ro CASI certified instructor. A great way to meet new friends or get back together with current ones!
365 Family Pass
Focusing on the success of Snow Valley Aerial Park this summer and the ease of a winter season pass to access the lifts, we’ve created something special for the family. The all new 365 Family Pass. At just $999.00 plus GST, a family of up to five (under same restrictions as a ski club family season pass) will get access to Snow Valley Ski Club all winter, followed by access to Snow Valley Aerial Park for the entire 2018 season! Each pass will have unique artwork, individual family member’s photo, and be valid from Opening Day 2017 until the Aerial Park closes in October of 2018.
Any way you look at it, 2017-18 is already shaping up to be a great season and it’s only AUGUST!
Simon’s looking forward to seeing everyone back on the slopes!
Today is our ALL DAY Food Bank Friday and Spring Break Camps will run Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Then the 2016-17 season comes to a close Wednesday, March 29 at 5:00 pm.
Thank you to all who came to enjoy all that we can provide: lifts, rentals, lessons, sessions, poutine, hot chocolate and most of all: FUN! We like to say we “Make Winter Fun”, when actually, YOU make winter fun.
Thank you and see you at Snow Valley Aerial Park on May 20 or sometime during the summer!
Due to very challenging snow making conditions – we have had very few nights with temperatures below -3 degrees – we will not have enough snow made to offer quality lessons this weekend (November 14 & 15) and we are forced to cancel the first day of programs.
The Christmas holidays prevent us from extending the programs later into December, so we would like to offer you a Snow Valley gift card for the value of the cancelled day of the lesson program. To collect your gift card, please bring your lesson card to Snow Valley Guest Services.
Our weekend programs are now scheduled to begin on Saturday, November 21 and Sunday, November 22 and run for four weeks. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause.
While there isn’t enough snow to learn on, we encourage you to come to Snow Valley this weekend, or any time during “Pre-Season Hours” to pick up your gift card, to pick up lesson cards and pre-fit rentals for the programs.
Picking up lesson cards and fitting rental equipment before the lessons begin will make it much easier for you to speed through lines on the first day of programs.
For additional information, please check out our website at snowvalley.ca or call 780.434.3991.
Too ambitious? Maybe, but we are making snow and otherwise we are ready!
Season pass sales were strong and lesson programs are practically full.
We are targeting November 13th, we hope, for a 5pm open time and YES it will be a Food Bank Friday to kick off the 2015-16 season.
If you’ve never been skiing or snowboarding, “C’mon down” as they say on the “Price Is Right” game show. (Did you know it’s STILL on the air?).
If you are someone who is new to the sport, be sure to sign up for our Discover Program: An on hill lesson before noon, a lunch break, another one hour lesson after lunch and the rest of the day to practice on all an inclusive lift pass and rentals!
Plus you get a FREE Area pass to return and practice more. If you decide to purchase a season pass during the same season, Your $69.95 Discover fee will be applied to your season pass fee. Way to go, team!
Learn to ski and snowboard right here at Snow Valley Ski Club because together we: Make Winter Fun!
This is always a great day to break up the winter with the whole family. Activities abound throughout the city. Snow Valley is no exception. We’ll have our Annual Fun Race, Hot chocolate and much more all day long. But who do we owe thanks for this ‘day off’? We have to go back almost 25 years.
The holiday was proclaimed by Lieutenant Governor Helen Hunley, on the advice of her premier, Don Getty. Premier Getty said it was important for all Albertans to take time for their families, and that this holiday would emphasize the importance of family values.
The holiday was first celebrated in 1990. Alberta was the only province in Canada to have a statutory holiday in February until Saskatchewan began observing it in 2007.
Getty came in for considerable criticism at the time. Many employers felt that an additional statutory holiday was an unnecessary financial burden. In response to the criticism, the holiday of Heritage Day was downgraded to a civic holiday, meaning employers are not required to observe this day. Under Alberta law, the employer may choose to observe Heritage Day as a general holiday, under which rules applying to general holiday pay will be used.
