    The Paradise team at Lake Louise Ski Resort for a demo day and Mount Slushmore in 2022.


    Whether it's laps in the resort, hitting backcountry objectives or starting up the aprés - we all love skiing and believe that real paradise can be found in the mountains. We are a small - dynamic crew of like-minded folks who truly care for what we do. We appreciate partnering with other locals for events/collaborations and are always open to new ideas from customers. If you see us on the hill, please don't hesitate to stop and say hi!


    With an unparalleled love for the mountains, Paradise Riders spread the stoke like no other; laid back and friendly... unless it's a powder day. From serious competitors to weekend warriors, this crew kicks ass. For them, any day on snow is #anotherdayinparadise.
