I first heard about Castle in my university days but sadly waited over 20 years to finally ski here. But once I found it, I quickly bought into Castles “Powder for the People” vision and it has been where I ski and hang out ever since.
My family and I love the Castle. It is our community. It’s where our friends are. It is where we come to socialize, relax and have fun. This community is very important to me. It is what sets Castle apart from any other resort.
With the creation of the new Castle Parks I expect our resort will experience inevitable pressure to develop. As this unfolds I want to ensure our community remains my family’s “happy place”.
Treasurer: Litisha Miller
Secretary: Monica Stewart
Having lived at Castle Mountain for the past 10 years, Monica is excited to be involved with the Castle Mountain Community Association as Secretary on the Executive Board of Directors. Monica hopes her background in Recreation and Leisure will help promote our wonderful community and enhance what is offered here.
