With its rolling prairie hills and mountain views, a recent visit to Pincher Creek and Castle Mountain Resort, gave our family of four an epic day of skiing. But more than that, it stole all of our hearts. We’ve classified it as a perfect southern Alberta family getaway that we won’t forget. Here are our three reasons why.

At first glance, it may be easy to overlook Pincher Creek. Looking a little deeper, I discovered there are a handful of local stores worth checking out, including SEEDS Flower shop, Ruffles Boutique and Blackburn Jewellers. Each store has its own unique vibe, but all shared one thing: they were inviting and had plenty of cool finds.
We were charmed by Pincher Creek and all it had to offer. Outside the Co-Op Grocery store, a great place to pick up some local food, a man was selling wooden carved goods. It only took a little more exploring to find out some of Pincher Creek’s secrets, like the Yoga offered in a Yurt by Shanti Hollow Yoga.
