ELKWATER WEATHER

Hidden Valley is located in the Cypress Hills Provincial Park near Elkwater, Alberta about a 45 mins drive south from Medicine Hat. The ski destination sits within a very unique situation as when the glaciers receded back in the day it left many of the flora and fauna characteristics you'd find in the Rocky Mountains, however its in the south east corner of the province.  Makes for unique time on the slopes amoungst an interesting setting.
