by - Friday, June 09, 2017

Summer is coming and that means it's time to save on family season's passes at your favorite ski hill! Take advantage of early bird sales and ski all season for under $1000 at Winsport, Nakiska, and Mount Norquay.


Season's Pass Details for Winsport, Nakiska, and Mount Norquay 

Winsport, Nakiska, and Mount Norquay are the most affordable options near Calgary with family season's passes for $1000 or less (at early bird pricing). Family season's passes typically become economical when you have 2 kids 6 & up and ski 8 times or more per season. If you ski less frequently - or have children in Grades 2, 4 or 5 - please see last year's story for tips on how to save on lift tickets and season's passes.

Winsport - Calgary's Ski Hill

Winsport, home of the 1988 Olympics, offers terrain for all levels including free style skiers and boarders. Beginners can learn the ropes on the (3) magic carpets before graduating to runs off the (2) chair lifts, junior terrain park (Progression Park), Terrain Park with over 30 features, or Super Pipe (largest pipe in Western Canada).

While the runs aren't that long, you can make them as challenging as you wish by going faster, choosing different lines, or trying new drills. My girls have skied at Winsport since they were 2 years old and got pretty good quickly because we went a few times a week after work. It is a definite advantage to have a ski hill close to home that is open for night skiing!

Nakiska - Calgary's Closest Mountain

Nakiska is a family favorite due to its location (only one hour from Calgary!), great ski school, and wide range of terrain. Whether you're boarding for the first time, or are a veteran shredder, there are tons of runs to ride. Adventurous skiers and boarders alike will love the Monster Glades and NaJibSka Rail Park! We had season's passes at Nakiska and loved being able to ski for part of the day then go snowshoeing or cross country skiing in beautiful Kananaskis Country.
