With over 7 feet of dry, light Canadian Rockies powder falling in Banff–Lake Louise since the start of March, and a deep base of 101 inches, the area’s three resorts, Mt. Norquay, The Lake Louise Ski Area and Sunshine Village are experiencing epic, record-breaking conditions:

•    345 inches of snow (year-to-date), we are closing in on an all-time record.
•    85 inches of snow so far this month – a new March record already.
•    Still two months of skiing and riding to go this season.

High fives and shouts of joy radiated from the resorts over the past couple of weeks as skiers and snowboarders realized that the ski season is far from over. “There is nothing better than seeing the excitement on peoples’ faces as they pull up to the chairlift anticipating their next run, it is the reason why we are all here,” says Dan Markham, Director of Marketing and Sales at Ski Banff-Lake Louise-Sunshine.

Snowfall averages at all three resorts have already been surpassed, and with two months still left in the season and La Nina in full swing, it could be the biggest recorded snow season in the area’s history!
