Banff National Park Ski Resorts Open Early for 2012-2013 Ski Season

24 Oct

After many days of snowfall in the Canadian Rockies over the past week, the ski resorts in Banff National Park are opening early. Nakiska ski resort, which is located outside of Banff National Park, announced yesterday that they were opening this weekend. Just a few hours ago, Banff Mt. Norquay announced that they are opening tomorrow (Thursday, October 25 2012) at noon, just a couple of days before Nakiska’s scheduled early opening (and thus stealing Nakiska’s thunder) – way to go Banff Mount Norquay! This is the earliest ski resort opening in Canada’s history (to our knowledge).

The Lake Louise Ski Area and Sunshine Village are currently scheduled to open on November 9th 2012 for the 2012-2013 winter ski season.

Cheap lift passes are available through the U.K. website but you have to contact them direct for rates. Their early-bird deadline is December 15 2012 so you’d better get your skates, or should I say, skis on!!!

Have a great season and feel free to post comments – we love to hear from you!
