Check the Weather – Winter in Alberta can be the most beautiful time of the year but it also offers rapidly changing weather patterns. As such always check what the weather and temperature is going to be both at your destination and on the journey to the Ski Hill.
Check the Road Reports – Winter driving means always being prepared for cold, snowy or icy conditions and varying road conditions. Always take a winter emergency road kit with you on your journey and make sure someone else knows what your travel plans are. While winter tires are not legislated in Alberta, good winter or all-weather tires are recommended when travelling on many winter-mountain roads.
Have a check list for your equipment – Nothing is worse than arriving and realizing you have forgotten something. Skis-Boots- Poles-Helmet-proper ski wear etc. should all be on your list and checked as you load them for the trip. This is particularly important for the kids.
