Parks open as soon as we have enough snow to ensure safety. It is always a work in progress with features being added and changed throughout this season.

Castle Mountain’s Terrain Parks are designed for riders by riders with a variety of rider abilities taken into consideration. Every rider level is taken into consideration when building the parks so that we have features to please the average Joe and big time pro. With the park crew at the helm of the snow cat and design, good things are sure to come.
