It’s late November and the Canadian Rockies have already had several big snowfalls which means that thoughts about skiing and snowboarding have started to dominate the minds of snow sports lovers across the country. Probably the most common question for skiers and riders from now until the season starts is:
“When do Sunshine Village, Lake Louise and Mount Norquay open for the 2015-2016 ski season?”
Well, the long wait for the winter season is now over with all 3 ski resorts in the Banff Lake Louise area already open!
The Lake Louise Ski Area opened November 6 2015.
Sunshine Village opened November 14 2015.
Mount Norquay opened November 5 2015.
Bear in mind that the number of lifts and runs open during the early weeks of the season may be limited, and further snowfalls and snow making will allow the hard working trail crews to open more terrain in the coming weeks. For this reason, be sure to confirm snow conditions and grooming reports directly with the ski areas before heading up the mountain for the first time.
