Canyon Ski Resort is one of the oldest ski resorts in Alberta, Canada. It opened its doors to skiers and snowboarders in September 1968, making it one of the first ski resorts in Alberta. The ski resort was built by two local businessmen, John and Jim Hogue, who were passionate about skiing and wanted to bring a world-class experience to the area.
The resort quickly became popular with locals and visitors alike. In the early years of operation, Canyon Ski Resort was known for its challenging terrain and excellent snow conditions.
The resort featured three main chairlifts, a T-bar lift, and a surface lift that provided access to all areas of the mountain. There were also several beginner trails in addition to more challenging runs for experienced skiers and snowboarders.
Canyon Ski Resort has grown significantly over the last 50 years. In addition to the original chairlifts and trails, there are now 11 total lifts including two high speed quads as well as a tubing park and terrain park with jumps, rails and other features. The resort also features a ski school that offers lessons for all ages and abilities.
The resort is open from November until April each year with extended hours during peak periods such as holidays or weekends when there is an influx of visitors.
