2017-18 SEASON PASS SALE Begins Today!

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!

What’s NEW?

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

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.

55+ Lessons

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!

Family Day is Coming Up

MSDNALA EC037

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.
