Louise has seen better snow. Still a good ski however the hill is covered in patches of ice and uncovered areas. Entire larch area is no good. This picture was from yesterday morning.

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

New Years Day 2014. Lots of hard packed snow, some bare icy patches. Beautiful blue skies (for an hour or so), slopes not at all busy, had a great day.

Nice day for a few groomers. Decent early season coverage on what's open but like all AB hills this time of year, could use a good few dumps to get the season truly started.

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.

Front side was well groomed with good amount of snow. Larch was ungroomed as far as I could tell but still decent if you enjoy a challenge. Excellent day of boarding.

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

Today was a great day for Sunshine! Snow fell all day, visibility was bad up at high elevations but everywhere else was good.

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.

Was there yesterday (Friday) and it was great. Plenty of runs open on the front side as well as a new little park they have going on now. The back side definitely needs more snow!

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!!
