Record Breaking Snowfall Means Longer Ski Season
May 2nd, 2012: BANFF-LAKE LOUISE, Alberta, Canada
The snow is falling and it just won’t stop!
Record-breaking snowfall has graced Banff-Lake Louise over this last season, so much so that The Lake Louise Ski Area is announcing a Spring Splash bonus weekend!
“We are always looking for ways to let our valued seasons pass and Louise Plus Card holders know we appreciate their loyalty, so this is what the bonus weekend is all about,” explains Proprietor Charlie Locke.
Both Sunshine Village and The Lake Louise Ski Area broke snowfall records this past season as they saw some of the best snow in Western North America. Sunshine Village has seen 1035 cm’s of total snowfall and Lake Louise saw 873 cm’s our famous dry light Canadian Rockies powder fall, and its not over yet.
Sunshine Village remains open until the May long weekend, shutting its lifts down on the 21st, boasting one of the longest seasons in North America. The Lake Louise Ski Area is extending their ski season by another weekend to celebrate the snowfall they have received this year shutting down for the season now on May 13th.
There is nothing better than spring skiing in Banff-Lake Louise, with a myriad of events like Ruckus in the Rockies and Bikinis for Breast Cancer and some warm sunny weather; there is fun for the whole family. Check out www.SkiBig3.com for spring ski and stay specials.
