Find out what makes Canyon Ski Resort one of the best attractions we have in central Alberta and why it's about to get even better this summer. Coming to central Alberta summer of 2022, Canyon Ski Resort is getting Alberta’s first alpine coaster. We interviewed one of the owners, Robyn Martel below:  

1. Tell us about your company?

Canyon Ski Resort is Alberta’s Largest Non-Mountain family ski area, with 80 acres of skiable terrain, 23 runs, and 6 lifts! Our resort offers a Terrain Park, Snow Tube Park, a rustic lodge, cafeteria, and cozy lounge. Our two chair lifts, two T-bars, and magic carpet can transport over 5,000 people per hour, so you can maximize your runs during the day. Canyon‘s vast snow-making system which covers 95% of the area gives you a jump on the season and ensures great conditions throughout the winter.

2. What makes you different, unique, or stand out?  

We are so lucky to be located right on the river valley! With water so close and our extensive snowmaking system, we can live in a winter wonderland even without natural snowfall!

3. Why do you do what you do?

Canyon is a family-owned and operated business that prides ourselves in supporting family-friendly fun! Sharing the fun of winter sports and encouraging safe physical activities year-round is why we do what we do!  

4. What can guests (local or visiting) expect to experience?

We bring the fun and feels of a mountain get-away, but in a smaller, more community-focused environment!

5. What is new or upcoming?

Our big, exciting news is that we are launching an Alpine Roller Coaster here at Canyon! This ride will be open during the off-season months and will include a beautiful summer outdoor space with food and beverages available for a fun day-trip with the family! We love the exciting buzz as you all get ready for an awesome summer of thrills on the hills. The Canyon Coaster will be accessed through the NEW Upper Village expansion (top of the Canyon) where the Edgar Highspeed Tube Park is located during the winter months. Guests will find a food and beverage area, washrooms, parking lot, and ticket office where they will check-in for their ride! As a bonus- our Coaster will both load and unload at the top of the Red T bar lift giving guests the ultimate experience of riding both down and back up the Canyon!

Follow Canyon Ski Resort on Facebook and Instagram for all the up-to-date news on this exciting development. For more information, check out their website and make sure to add the new alpine roller coaster to your summer list while you #ExploreRedDeersBackyard!
