It’s September and snow has already started to appear on the higher peaks above 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 2020-2021 ski season?”
Well, if mother nature cooperates, we could be skiing in the Banff area in a little over a month!
Mount Norquay has a tentative opening date of October 30 2021.
Lake Louise Ski Resort has a tentative opening date of October 29 2021.
Sunshine Village has a tentative opening date of November 11 2021.
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.
