This trip is intended for all levels of skiers and boarders. This is primarily a event for carpooling but we'll be all inclusive with people breaking into smaller groups along skill levels.

There may be an Auxillary carpool pick up for those preferring Petro Canada in Springbank.

  • We will be leaving the carpool at 9:00 AM. to arrive at the Nakiska ticket sales kiosks around 10:00 AM. Please arrive a few minutes early so we can arrange carpooling and depart on time.
  • Some will ski straight through some will take a lunch break. So much depends on conditions and crowds. Forecast is for noon temperatures at or above freezing.
  • We typically get in all the skiing our hearts desire by 2:30 / 3 pm. I'll be hitting a CBP Pub for their specials after carpool return. You are very welcome to join me.
  • Please note that skiing/snowboarding activities have inherent risks involved.

    If you would like to drive: please indicate how many people including gear you can take in your vehicle, as well as what type of vehicle you will be driving, in the Notes section.

This is based on $0.15/Km for maintenance, plus current gas price divide by 9. Note that drivers with large vehicles have the option to adjust this cost based on their vehicles.

Please split the actual amount among all people in the vehicle and bring some change as drivers are not expected to carry change.
