Located deep in Southern Alberta right on the Alberta/B.C. border Castle Mountain is tucked away in a spot that not many travel to, making it another sleepy hill. This mountain has a small mountain feel with some serious big mountain terrain and a ton of backcountry to explore in the right conditions.

The snow at Castle is yet another example of blower powder in it's finest form, usually falling in large dumps and coming at any time of the season. The one thing that you have to watch out for at Castle is the wind, which along with the snow is something that Castle seems to get quite a bit of. The top of this mountain is wide open and only dotted with small trees until you reach the bottom half where you will find stands large enough to have runs cut in to them. The windy weather and lack of trees on much of the mountain means that there are a lot of wind blown ridges with little snow on them and just as many wind loaded slopes with tons of powder to shred.

This mountain about an hour out of Calgary is one of the best little big mountains around, and in my mind the closest legitimate mountain to Calgary. The resort itself is located in the Kananaskis Region of Alberta, which is about 25 km east of the B.C./Alberta border and in the most easterly part of the Rocky Mountains. This location at the edge of the Rockies provides Fortress with quite a bit ... [ Read More ]
