Ski events in the other countries: Canada
Both beginner and advanced skiers and snowboarders may wish to visit Castle Mountain resort in Canada's province of Alberta that has become glorious for its inbounds steeps and extreme skiing (see picture to the right). There's a lift allowing access to the terrain that is popular with beginners and intermediates. Those without ski partners, lacking adequate snow knowledge, and not equipped with avalanche gear are warned to
stay within the prescibed bounderies.
