Our family of four arrived on Friday after the slopes were closed, so it was quite in the village. After the gondola ride up and short the walk over to the lodge, I really felt like I was in a special place.
We were up early the next day to hit the runs as soon as we could. It's so convenient staying up at the lodge and being ahead of the morning rush.
The skiing was awesome, loved the great variety of terrain. I’m just a beginner and really enjoyed the green run off the Strawberry lift. My husband and kids explored many areas, but ran out of time to get to Goat’s Eye. We all downloaded the Alpine app. It was great fun comparing stats at the end of the day.
Staff were friendly and welcoming everywhere we went; front desk, rentals, coffee shop, lift operators, burger bar. Good quality burgers were a nice delight (in my experience it's rare to have such good eats at the day lodge).
Truly a unique Alberta winter experience, one that won’t be soon forgotten.
