Magical, raw, expansive and ever so slightly remote … Fortress is the stuff of legend. Perched high in the Canadian Rockies, Fortress Mountain Resort is located just over one hour west of Calgary, Alberta. With 750cm (300 inches) of average annual snowfall, wind-protected slopes, incredible tree skiing, and up to 2000+ acres of stunning terrain, Fortress is a bastion of the authentic Canadian ski experience.
Fortress Mountain is currently undergoing the single largest redevelopment and revision program in its legendary 50 year history. Phase 1 plans will furnish new lifts, a new lodge and much more. Fortress will soon once again offer multiple generations of skiers and riders terrain and amenities to create that perfect ski day.
Alpine Helicopters works in close partnership with some of the Rocky Mountains’ local tourism and service businesses to offer a range of helicopter assisted experiences and adventures. Various Stoney Nakoda Sightseeing Tours available.
