Freshies brimmed the back bowls of Lake Louise Ski Resort, priming some backside runs for the first turns of the season. The gates to Whitehorn 1 were opened, treating winter enthusiasts to deep, delicious and untouched turns. At Banff Sunshine Village, fluffy flakes graced mountain faces, bringing it to a weekly total of 31 inches.
