Interior Alberta

Grande Prairie, AB – Closing in on 60 years of serving the communities which surround it, Nitehawk Year-Round Adventure Park was happy to say that with the hard work of its snow making crews, the resort was able to have a soft opening on Nov. 17.

Cold Lake, AB – You have to love alpine fans. Nothing will deter them, not even living on the Prairies. Prairie topography may be devoid of mountains, but it’s not devoid of big hills and alpine fans definitely make use of them.

NiteHawk is a full service, year round regional family recreation facility featuring skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking, luge and a campground.

There is so much to gain by volunteering for something that can bring so much good to your community. Volunteering not only benefits your community, it benefits you. Volunteering will help you gain amazing new skills that can transition easily into both your personal and professional lives, and those skills will last forever. And, just think of the new friends you'll make.

You know your kids are pumped and impressed by the scenery when they’re snapping photos and singing songs about snow from the back seat as you’re driving down the highway.


That’s what’s happening in our car as we wind our way down highways 507 and 774 toward Pincher Creek.

As a skier raising three little skiers in Alberta, it always feels a little strange going east instead of west in winter, until I’m there and then it all makes sense.

“I can almost connect my turns!” first-time snowboarder, Ivy Folkhard says, grinning from ear to ear. She’s been on a snowboard for little more than an hour, but has already mastered the basics. Edward Ford, Pass Powderkeg Snow School Instructor extraordinaire, gives her a high five before checking on the rest of the family. While Cohen, 8, works hard to keep up to his 10- year-old sister, Berkeley, 5, laughs as she falls in the snow again. “You’re doing that on purpose!” Edward teases.
