Only a Few Freeride Areas

Unfortunately, Mt. Norquay offers little to no open terrain or slopes that would be appealing to fans of freeride skiing who are into endless powder fun. However, freeriders should take the Mystic Express which gives access to longer blue tree runs making for variety, or the North American chairlift which serves few, yet nice backcountry terrain. Here, everyone can clear a way through the snow on their own while discovering new options and ways down the slopes.

Anyways, the offer is manageable and comparatively small as it is in European ski areas. Norquay does not have the extensive terrain of its sister resorts, yet it offers a neat mix of runs worth exploring.
