Early Season Snow Highlights

Travel to Canada - What to Expect

Early Season Snow Highlights

With a snow base climbing towards 2 metres (6.5 ft) at SkiBig3 resorts, and a cumulative snowfall of more than 4.78 metres (15.7 ft) in just two months, the snow conditions in Banff and Lake Louise are prime. It’s been an absolutely incredible start to the season, and the base at all three resorts is healthier than we’ve ever seen it. Blessed with more powder days than we can count, November, December and fresh snow in January have gotten our legs pumping and our hearts hungry for more epic turns.

Want to see? Take a look at the webcams. Here’s a recap of our most stoked moments so far from this season.
