With a current snow base of over 69 cm and more snow in the forecast skiers and borders can expect a snow filled opening day with a lucky few getting up to the resort a day early as winners of a resort hosted contest.

This Thursday’s opening will be the third and final resort opening in Banff National Park which also include The Lake Louise Ski Area and Mt. Norquay. Both resorts opened Nov. 5th, 2011 to eagerly awating skiers and borders, some in line as early as 6:30 am hoping to catch the first chair of the
season.

With rumours circulating of another of La Nina winter, Mt. Norquay, The Lake Louise Ski Area and Sunshine Village hope for a season filled with their famous dry light Canadian Rockies powder.
