Great time! Would do it again! Great family activity. We have 2 "adult" kids - age 18 and 21 - and we all loved it. We screamed every time we went down - the runs are steep and fast!
We did the all day pass - but next time would probably just do 2 hours. We were done after about 2.5 hrs. We got about 8 runs in.

Great place, nice to go and ski without the long lines...the price is reasonable when you think of how long the runs are. They could expand a bit, but its a nice place that has snow tubing !

We had a great day snow tubing at Mount Norquay. The runs are long enough and there are enough of them that the lines weren't very long. You dress for winter, then pick up your passes (we got a Travelzoo deal and paid about $90 for 8 of us), the hill is right outside the chalet, and you pick up your tubes and stand on a magic carpet which takes you and your tube to the top. The lines were not very long (or nonexistent) for most of the day, except for the afternoon for awhile when the full-day people are still there, and the half-day people arrive). We saw no one fall, flip or get injured at all while we were there, so it is safe for all ages (as long as you are over 42 inches tall). It was a great (kinda lazy) way to spend a day and far less taxing than skiing. Loved it! The chalet food is not great (the burgers were bland) and, of course, pretty expensive.

I live in the bow valley and think this ski resort is great.I have been a few times this year and the snow was great.My favorite thing about this resort is the pay structure,you can pay by the hour.Getting out and getting in a few runs and not breaking the bank is very nice.Living all of 45 minutes away is also a big sell for me.Not sure how much rentals are or how good they are as I have my own gear.Just a warning though,slopes are a bit shorter but much steeper.Enjoy!

We were a party of 17 with many small children. There is "very small play area for kids shorter than 42" as they are not allowed to go tubing due to safety regulations. So we all took turns watching the kids while the others went tubing.
It was a blast!!! We all had so much fun, laughing, screaming and feeling the rush of excitement. It is very good value for your money. The attendants were all awesome. We went on Christmas Eve and it wasn't too busy.
This is an amazing family activity! At the top of our list of exciting highlights on our trip.
