Skiing & Snowboarding Winter Outdoor Activities

Imagine floating on top of a cappuccino. That’s kind of what it’s like to ski or board the legendary, airy powder in the Canadian Rockies. • Good to know: You’re spoiled for choice with ski resorts in Alberta. Wide open runs and uncrowded ski lifts may be so exciting you'll forget you're on the world's best dry and powdery snow. • Try it: Leave the resorts behind and book a backcountry trip. The pure white slopes are just begging for your attention. • Level up: Take a helicopter with some pals and cut into that untouched alpine marshmallow fluff. Make it a multi-day heli-trip with a stay in a mountainside lodge.

Sunridge Ski Area

Edmonton, Alberta

Sunridge Ski Area is located in the Strathcona Science Park, a provincial park on the eastern edge of the City of Edmonton. While we overlook the City, we are actually located in Strathcona County on the eastern slopes of the North Saskatchewan river valley. Snow tubing is the best thing to happen to winter and Sunridge has the only Snow Tubing Park around. With a dedicated tubing lift (so you don't have to walk up the hill), three groomed chutes down one of our main hills, and special tubes provided by us, you won't find a better outdoor winter activity.
