Western Skier from Canada writes:

Small hill with creaky old lifts. Spend enough days there and eventually you will catch right weather conditions. A good one. Can be good when it snows but the weather and wind of Chinook cycles can make a mess of it. Timing is everything, Many locals claim it is the longest steepest fall line in North America but I haven't found that to be accurate. I grew up skiing there and believed that hype but now that I have been all over North America I have found that is false. Every hill has its own selling points and Castle van provide a great day in the right conditions.
