Conditions should be ideal for Castle Mountain Resort’s opening weekend, this Friday to Sunday, with daytime temperatures hovering near the freezing mark.

An added bonus for boarders and skiers: the resort will donate $1 from each lift ticket sold, up to $1,000, splitting the proceeds evenly between the Pincher Creek and Crowsnest Pass food banks.

Pincher Creek Co-op has agreed to match the donations dollar-for-dollar, doubling any contributions.
