Hidden Valley ski slopeHidden Valley

Hidden Valley is located in the Cypress Hills Provincial Park near Elkwater, Alberta Canada. Our facility offers a unique opportunity to experience winter activities in a friendly, professional environment.

We typically open from early December thru to the end of March. We can guarantee reasonable rates and reasonable lift lines.

Winter Time Fun is what Hidden Valley is all about! We promote the physical activity and you enjoy the fresh outdoors!

Please note our regular hours of operations are Wednesday to Sunday with lifts running 9:30 am to 4 pm.

Hidden Valley allows "skinning" on the hill (non lift users on backcountry or splitboard equipment). You must sign in and out at the ticket office. Thank you!

Hope you all had a great holiday season. We now resume regular hours of Wednesday to Sunday, Lodge open 8:30am to 4:30pm and Lifts 9:30am to 4pm.


Please note we will be closed Thursday January 9th for schedule maintenance, inspections and training.
