Over 50cm (20 inches) of snow has fallen in the past six days and blanketed Banff's three ski areas at Mt. Norquay, Lake Louise Ski Area and Sunshine Village, in dry, fluffy powder.
The great early season conditions resulted in a fantastic opening weekend at Sunshine Village. Mt. Norquay and Lake Louise Ski Area both had a great second weekends of the season with more snow. Along with Marmot Basin, the four Albert resorts are the only major resorts open in Canada ahead of next weekend
Sunshine had the most opening day terrain in North America, and like Lake Louise is now open seven days a week, and Mt. Norquay is open for weekends until full opening on December 5th.
Soon there will be almost 8,000 acres of skiable terrain and 274 runs available for skiers and riders to enjoy.
