Awesome day.(Sunday) Everyone's complaining about no snow, I don't know why. We had a sick day, little lines, lots of runs. Even untouched stuff in a lot of places, just have to open your eyes.

Bluebird day yesterday @ Sunshine. Unfortunately, that was only good part of the day. Very hard packed (it felt like ice but not quite), having said that, there was lots of icy spots all over the mountain. Lots of people! lift lines at every chair. 
Would have gone to the backcountry, but Parks Canada issued red alert conditions. 
Pray for snow! the hill needs it bad!!!!

Bluebird day. Wind packed. Softened up a bit with the sun. Needs a lot more snow as there are lots of bare spots. Will be ugly after this gets ski'd off. Not a lot of people today so it was pretty good

a good day. Standish is no good still too rocky but angel and divide wrecks great with packed powder. There is nice soft deep powder on the divide side of Strawberry and I don't know why more people don't ride it. Wawa has some soft snow but it is very moguly. All in all a solid day

Was perfect weather conditions but definitely in need of more snow. I suggest avoiding goats eye still lots exposed. Other than that excellent early season conditions. No complaints.

Not as much powder as I had hoped considering the amount of snow during the week but still an awesome day. Goats eye still needs snow. very icy and hard.

Sunday was crazy windy. 70km/hr winds. Snow drifts were fun with light fluffy snow. Lots of serious hard pack patches.

Don't just be a sour critic. If you actually read the posts saying what runs are terrible (on any hill, not just sunshine) then stay away from that area. If your ski ability is not good enough to avoid that area, don't bother going that day. Don't keep posting about your terrible experience on something a smart skier/boarder already knows. It's the beginning of the season so you are going to hit rocks and roots no matter the resort. Make the best of your day.

Great day boarding Nov 23rd, huge turnout (parking and lift ticket lines brutal) but lift lines not bad. Limited runs open, but great snow coverage, few areas of exposed rock towards end of day, not icy at all. Great for this early in the season!!

The Lake Louise Ski Resort and Sunshine Village are scheduled to open on November 8th. However in true form, the mighty Mt. Norquay may sneak in with an even earlier opening, slated for November 1st, to steal the title of the first resort in Canada to open!
