Shootin’ the Breeze Pincher Creek – April 10, 2024

That’s a wrap

The vibes were good and a bit of fresh snow was welcomed as Castle Mountain Resort wrapped up its season over the weekend with a retro theme. “It was a tale of two seasons,” says Cole Fawcett, sales and marketing manager for CMR. “The first half of the year was challenging with low snow and high temperatures, but the back half was exceptional and we had the busiest March in history.” He also noted that the resort’s recent investment in snowmaking equipment paid off as it prevented prolonged closures in December and January when the weather didn’t co-operate. The hill is now closed but season pass holders have until the end of the month to renew at this year’s rates. | Photos courtesy of Castle Mountain Resort
