Incredible Snow Conditions in Banff National Park 2011

15 Jan

Firstly, a belated Happy New Year to you all!

We are off to a fantastic start here in the Canadian Rockies. The snowfall so far has just been incredible.  So much powder, in fact, the Kicking Horse Powder Express from Banff has been cancelled the last couple of days due to it not being able to get through!

This is the snow POWDER report from today:

  • Lake Louise [Banff National Park] – 19cm received in past 24 hours (40cm in the past 2 days)
  • Sunshine Village [Banff National Park] – 21cm received in the past 24 hours (42cm in the past 2 days)
  • Banff Norquay [Banff National Park] – 35+cm in the past 24 hours. Their NORTH AMERICAN chair (BIG CHAIR) opened today!
  • Nearby Nakiska – 28cm in the past 24 hours, 38cm in the past 48 hours, 63cm in the past 7 days.
  • Nearby Kicking Horse Mountain Resort – 32 cm in the past 24 hours, 61cm in the past 48 hours (84cm in the past week). Incredible.

Have any of you managed to get up recently? If you have, we would love to hear about it!

Drive safe and enjoy this magnificent powder!

 

Ski Accommodation Kicking Horse

30 Nov

There is not a lot of ski accommodation in Canada left for renting over New Year.

Due to a last minute cancellation, a 3-bedroom on-mountain resort home has become available from December 28 2007 for 4 nights (Check-out Jan 1 2008) in Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. Kicking Horse Mountain Resort is about 2 hours from Banff. This is an absolute gem and if you have not already snapped up a place over New Year, snap this one up!

Rate is CDN$695 per night plus applicable taxes (14%). Total rate for a 4 night stay is $3169.

To book this or to check if it is still available, contact rocky-peak Ski Holidays as soon as you can!

 

Banff to Kicking Horse onboard the Powder Express

23 Nov

Visit Canada’s newest ski resort in a day from Banff (and Lake Louise) onboard the Kicking Horse Powder Express. Kicking Horse Mountain Resort has developed significantly over the last few years and has a lot to offer especially to those looking for something a little more challenging. When you get there, you can catch the gondola to the top of the mountain. At the very top of the mountain, there is a world class restaurant (The Eagle’s Eye) with impressive panoramic views. This is where the fun begins!

From the top of the mountain you have the greatest vertical in the Rockies to cruise down. Kicking Horse‘s longest run is 10 km (6 miles) and there is a green run all the way down so that the more cautious of you can join in! With plenty of steep and deep, Kicking Horse offers some of the most challenging terrain in the Rockies. You can view the full statistics on Kicking Horse Mountain Resort by visiting a Kicking Horse Mountain Resort statistic summary page (complied by rocky-peak Ski Holidays).

The price of just $90 per adult, and $80 per child/youth including ALL tax is comparable in price to that of a regular day pass in most ski resorts in Western Canada. The Kicking Horse Powder Express will operate 7 days a week from January 6 2008 until one week before the season end. From December 19 to January 6 2008, the Kicking Horse Powder Express will be only operating on Wednesdays and Fridays.

Jump onboard the Powder Express from Banff for little more than the price of a one day lift pass!
