Lake Louise Goes One better
Fri 10 November 06
Alls Go This Weekend
Lake Louise Mountain Resort will be opening for the 2006-2007 winter season this Saturday 11th November.
The alpine area has a 55-60cm settled snowpack, and snowmaking efforts all over the mountain are providing good coverage from top to bottom. There has been over 30cm of new snow in the past 24 hours, with more predicted in the short-term forecast. The lifts will start running at 9am, with the Glacier Express Quad Chair. On Saturday, the resort is also planning to open the Sunny T-Bar for access to the beginner area. The Top of the World 6-Pack Chair and Summit Platter are also scheduled to open Saturday, much earlier than typical seasons. So all looks good in Canada for a great season.

“Excellent freeriding on four mountain faces, slap bang in the heart of the Canadian Rockies giving a sense of true remoteness. Nightlife here is limited, however Banff (population 8000) is located a 45 minute drive away and provides a livelier after hill scene. A 'Tri-Area Lift Ticket' lift pass gives you access and free transport to the trio of 3 ski areas in the Rockies - Lake Louise, Sunshine Village and Mount Norquay. The first two complement one another well in their own individual ways and well worth riding. ”
