It’s still only early October but it looks and feels a lot like winter with fresh snow on the ground in the towns of Banff and Lake Louise, which means 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 is:
“When do Sunshine Village, Lake Louise and Mount Norquay open for the 2019-2020 ski season?”
Well, if Mother Nature cooperates we could be seeing the first lifts open in less than one month!!
Mount Norquay has a tentative opening date of ‘Early November’ 2019.
Lake Louise Ski Resort has a tentative opening date of Friday November 8 2019.
Sunshine Village has a tentative opening date of Friday November 8 2019.
The reason the above dates are ‘tentative’ is that there needs to be enough snow on the ground for the resorts to open, so fingers crossed the white stuff keeps on falling! It is always recommended to check snow conditions directly with the ski hills if you are planning to head up the mountain on opening day.
