Your screwed, Its gets really busy there. specially now that they got alot of snow. i suggest head to red chair and follow the bowl all the way to the right (looking up to the top). Otherwise, shred hard and stay safe. Oh never drop below blue chair cuz its a bitch to get all the way to the top and theres nothing good below red chair.

yeah I thought as much, we were going to ride kicking horse but they closed their childcare so that screwed things for my little nipper - castle seemed a good shout and i managed to get a cheap cabin.

So is the red chair the "Tamarrack" chair and the blue chair the "sundance triple chair"? I'm looking at the trail maps now.

The chutes are the main attraction.... spend the majority of your time in the chutes, maybe a couple runs in the north glades.

On the Haig mountain side, Ghostrider and Ambush glades are always worth checking out, love it in there.

Don't discount the north side off the blue chair, the glades are wicked when its fresh pow time. Otherwise yeah, stick to the red chair. Chutes are great when they are open. Can't go wrong going north or south off the red tho, on pow days everything is awesome. Even on off days, the wind sift makes it like fresh pow every day.

Tons of places to find fresh lines anytime tho, castle is awesome. I love that the shitty slow lifts keep most crowds away and then the wind....well just say castle gets a wee bit of wind lol

Cheers - I've heard good and bad things about the place but it sounds perfect for what I want. Staying in a remote cabin with my other half and 3 year old boy. He's got day care on site with 2 hours of "snow play" and it's half the price of sunshine. They're forecast for a little dump tomorrow and I'm driving there on Thursday night so hopefully Friday wont be too crowded.
