Uncrowded, Unspoiled and Even Better at Night! Pass Powderkeg is your Friendly Neighbourhood Ski Hill.
Welcome to the PPK, the perfect place for families to ski and ride! Opened in 1938, Pass Powderkeg is located in the beautiful Crowsnest Pass in SW Alberta, about 140 km from Lethbridge and just 230 km from Calgary. Pass Powderkeg is a community-owned ski area, designed for skiers and riders of all ages and abilities. There’s no need to hunt for parking, battle for space to turn on the slopes or go to the bank to finance a family ski trip.
The mountain is configured around two T-Bars with the connection at mid-mountain (where our historic day lodge is located), so parents and children can ski at their own level without getting lost. Oh, and did we mention the magic of Skiing & Snowboarding at night?
