Banff welcomes Canada's first skiers

Article content

25 October 2012 by Luke McCormick

Canada's Banff National Park is on track for another record-breaking ski season, with the park's Mt. Norquay resort marking its earliest opening in its 87-year history.

Mt. Norquay has one of the longest ski seasons in North America, and after 34 feet of snowfall last season, is the first ski resort to open in Canada this year.

Mt. Norquay is located minutes from the town of Banff and has seen 30cm of natural snowfall in the past week, which combined with perfect temperatures, has served up prime early season conditions.

Banff National Park is home to three world-class ski resorts - Mt. Norquay, The Lake Louise Ski Area and Sunshine Village - offering almost 8,000 acres of skiable terrain on one convenient, tri-area lift ticket.

The Lake Louise Ski Area and Sunshine Village are set to open November 9.
