Skiing & Snowboarding Winter Outdoor Activities

Hear the soft swish of your skis cutting brand new lines in the feather-light snow. With each turn, an arc of sun-sparkled crystals sprays up as you fly down the tree-lined slope. The ice glitters on the evergreens against a backdrop of blazing white peaks and baby blue skies. You feel like you’re living a moment from a glossy ski magazine. In Alberta, the slopes of the Canadian Rockies have the legendary, airy powder revered by skiers and boarders worldwide. Go by snowcat or helicopter to the backcountry, where pure virgin runs await. Boarders can also strut their stuff in the terrain parks.

Ah, spring! The days are a little longer and the sun a little stronger, but that doesn’t mean winter is out of the picture just yet. If you’re thinking of retiring the skis or snowboard for the season, think again!

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.
