It’s late September and with snow having fallen on the high peaks of the Canadian Rockies, thoughts about skiing and snowboarding have started to enter 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 2017-2018 ski season?”
Well, the long wait for the winter season is almost over, with the first lifts due to be open in around 5 to 6 weeks time!
Sunshine Village has a tentative opening date of November 10 2017.
Lake Louise Ski Resort has a tentative opening date of November 10 2017.
Mount Norquay has a tentative opening date of November 3 2017.
The reason of course that some of these opening days are ‘tentative’, is that the resorts need enough snow on the ground to operate. For this reason the dates are subject to change so be sure to confirm the actual opening day and the current conditions directly with the ski areas nearer the time if you are planning to head up the mountain on the first day of the season.
