What a start!
Skied Sunshine on Sunday and today (Tuesday), still some powder stashes in the trees from Monday's snowfall and lots more on the way. The ski-out has been open for a week (usually open second week in December) to give you an idea of what the snow has been like. Weather forcast this week is for lots of snow and cold temperatures so we have a fighting chance to build up the base. General impressions from folks up at the hills is that this is one of the best openings ever for the Banff area. It might be worth checking out Panorama or KH for a day since they have been getting lots of snow as well.
Have fun! I've been out 8 times already (not too shabby in the first 11 days
), but now I have to take a hiatus (10 days of meetings in Edmonton
in two weeks) with only a couple of days available to nip up to Banff.
