Hello – it’s good to be back. We are VERY excited about this upcoming winter season in Western Canada. Lots of snow has been predicted by top forecasters and this has been also backed up by the fact we have had a much cooler, wetter September so far. Best of all, yesterday, Banff National Park received about 20 cms of fresh. Checking out the live webcams on our website, Sunshine Village, Lake Louise, Banff Norquay and Jasper Marmot Basin, all look ready to go….but unfortunately, we must wait….

We’re hoping the dates will be brought forward for opening. Currently, we have confirmed opening dates for Banff Norquay on Halloween Weekend, The Lake Louise Ski Area on November 5 and Sunshine Village on November 11. We think Jasper Marmot Basin and the other ski resorts in Western Canada won’t be too far behind with their opening dates. Feel free to comment below if you have more inside information!

Thanks to SkiBig3.com, we have some excellent photos from yesterday’s snow storm which hit the Canadian Rockies. Photo credit goes to SkiBig3 – thank you!
