Vista Ridge aims to be the best non-mountain winter recreation in Alberta. We have great skiing and snowboarding runs with modern lifts and awesome parks, plus a friendly beginners area.

For non-skiers (or for those who fancy a change), we have an incredible Tube Park for you to enjoy, as well as a community Ice Rink. Add to all this a beautiful main lodge, plentiful rental equipment, delicious food and friendly staff and it’s easy to see why we’re so popular! 

Check out everything there is to know about Vista Ridge in the winter, and we hope to see you out here soon!
