If the only thing keeping you off the slopes is that new-found resolution to spend less money in 2018, we’ve got some good news for you.
Mount Norquay is offering a special day each month when you can go skiing or snowboarding for just $2. If you happen to scrounge up a bit more than a Toonie while coin-hunting in the couch, they’ll also be accepting cash donations that go towards local charities within the Bow Valley and Calgary area.

The next Toonie Day will be on Wednesday, March 7. If you happen to miss this week’s discount you can also swing by Mount Norquay for a few inexpensive runs on April 11.
“[The Toonie Days are] our chance to give back to the ski community we love so much,” states the Mount Norquay website.
Conditions currently show a snow base of 131 cm, a year to date snowfall of 407 cm, and 45 cm of new snow in the past seven days.
All lifts are open, along with the tube park and all runs.
Don’t have any wheels? If you can find a way out to Banff, there’s a shuttle service that runs from the Juniper Hotel all the way up to Mount Norquay – and it’s free!
It’s definitely not a bad way to spend a Wednesday, but just make sure you get there early in case anyone else somehow gets the same smart idea.
When: Wednesdays, March 7, and April 11.
Time: 9 am to 4 pm
Where: Mount Norquay Scenic Drive, Banff
Tickets: Just $2
