As our resident ‘North American expert’ predicted,  the La Nina season has headed to Lake Louise Ski Area and Mt. Norquay in Banff, as they opened up for their lifts for the start of the season on Saturday 5th November

They were also joined by neighbours Keystone and Copper Mountains in Colorado who opened on Friday November 4th, taking that state’s tally to five areas open so far.

“We have all heard the La Nina rumours and are expecting another great snow filled season,” says Dan Markham, Director of Marketing and Sales at Ski Banff Lake Louise Sunshine.

“With some help from Mother Nature in terms of natural snow fall, as well as cooler temperatures, we’ve been able to work diligently making snow” says The Lake Louise Ski Area President Charlie Locke.

The resort will continue to add more lifts and more terrain daily as snow conditions permit.
One thing is for sure, the season has well and truly started!
