Last week, I shared a few photos that I took while travelling around Banff National Park, Canada, and I am truly humbled by the number of wonderful comments that were submitted, so I decided to show you a few more. Over the past week, Mother Nature decided to bless us with 30 inches of snow, which has everyone in town talking about one thing: skiing! And Just Like that, Winter has Arrived in Banff.
And Just Like that, Winter has Arrived in Banff
November is an exciting time of year for local residents of Banff. The hustle and bustle of the summer tourism season has come and gone, traffic and parking are easy to find. The local ski resorts start teasing us with photos and potential start dates for the upcoming ski season. A fresh crop of Aussies are running around town in their “jumpers” looking to get all the necessary gear that is required for an extended ski holiday in Canada. It truly is an exciting time of year!
It’s at this time of year that I look through old ski and snowboard photos and get myself psyched up for the coming season. Here are a few that I hope you will enjoy seeing as much as I did taking them.
Sunshine Village Ski Resort is famous for Canada’s best snow and three mountains of diverse terrain.
At Sunshine they are proud to feature runs ranging from easy greens to the hardest double blacks. You’ll find terrain for the whole family to enjoy.
Lake Louise Ski Resort is known for it’s spectacular scenery and versatile terrain. With over 4,200 acres spread across four mountain faces, Lake Louise is also one of the largest ski resorts in North America.
Just minutes from the village of Lake Louise, the exceptional layout allows visitors of all abilities to ski together with beginner, intermediate and expert runs from every chair.
Lake Louise is known for its variety from gentle slopes and long cruising runs, to glades, chutes and some of the Canadian Rockies most exciting, wide open bowls.
When visiting the Lake Louise Ski Resort, be sure to take your camera! The spectacular views of mountains, glaciers, lakes and forests are truly unique and befitting of Canada’s first National Park.
