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!

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.
In support of winter, we present our annual Tropical Weekend at Snow Valley.
All weekend long you will be whisked away to the tropics while riding the slopes of Discover, Southpaw and Cascade.
Saturday between 11a and 2p you can have fun on Discover with our Limbo contest…ya mahn. Saddle up to the Tiki-bar and watch the fun. All weekend our food special, Grilled Chicken & Pineapple Kebob with Avocado Salsa & Rice, is just $5.00.
