Its basically CAT skiing for the price of a lift ticket when it dumps. I cannot imagine any place in North America that could possibly have better powder days....but you gotta time em! I will sometimes leave on a Friday if I think the Pow is coming on a Saturday. Just stay in Pincher Creek overnight knowing your only half an hour away from glory.

Get a Sunshine Card which gives you 3 free days, 1, 3rd and 7th I think and gives you a 20 dollar off every other time.

Well that is why I bought a Sunshine season pass. Many more good snow days (7 months) and then I ride Castle on powder days only - come hell or high water. I think I would actually cross country ski there in a blizzard if necessary.
