It’s Snowing in Banff-Lake Louise!

The first snow of the season has hit Banff-Lake Louise's three ski resorts! Snow has blanketed the mountains all weekend.

“With the base already building, we're sure it'll be a great season,

from opening day onwards,” said Dan Markham, of Ski Banff-Lake


And opening day isn’t far off, with Mt. Norquay scheduled to open

later this month. A Halloween party on October 31 will kick off the


The Lake Louise Ski Area will follow closely,

aiming to open on November 6. Supplementing the natural snowfall with

one of North America’s best snowmaking systems, the resort is preparing

to again host the first, and Canada’s only, stop on the World Cup

circuit. The Men’s races will take place on November 28 to 29, and the

Women’s races on December 4 to 6.

Sunshine Village plans to open on November 11, with the newly-renovated

Sunshine Mountain Lodge opening 30 new eco-luxurious rooms shortly

after. The multimillion dollar wing replacement has not only added

luxury to the Lodge, but also lowered the resort’s carbon footprint.

Ski Banff–Lake Louise–Sunshine is Canada’s largest ski

destination, a joint venture of three of the world’s finest ski

resorts; Mt. Norquay, The Lake Louise Ski Area and Sunshine Village.

Available on one tri-area lift ticket, our three resorts offer almost

8,000 acres of skiable terrain and one of the longest ski seasons in

North America, from mid November to late May, all in the heart of a

UNESCO World Heritage Site - Canada’s Protected Playground, Banff

National Park.
