Spring Skiing at Sunshine Village

I had the most amazing day skiing at Sunshine Village this week; the powder was so incredible that I had a hard time believing I was skiing on "mid-April" snow. We've had awesome snow this season, the ski resorts in Banff Lake Louise have received some of the best snow that we've had in over five years.

You could hear random cheers and screams of excitment all over the mountain from people enjoying the conditions; it was a blast! My friend Karen and I found a run off of Goat's Eye that didn't get a lot of traffic and had very soft powder. I definitely had a smile on my face the whole way down, not sure if you can see it in this photo:



Spring Skiing is my favourite because the temperatures are usually between -8 and 0 degrees Celsius and the snow is always good. I was skiing at a resort in the United States at the beginning of April and the snow was a little bit icy and by noon, very slushy. In my opinion, there is no comparison to spring skiing in Banff Lake Louise to other resorts in North America.

Picnic tables are setup outside some of the restaurants on the hill, making it very easy to enjoy a beverage and some food for an outdoor lunch break. My favourite are the hamburgers are cooked on BBQs.



One thing that you cannot forget - sunscreen, even on a cloudy day. The goggle tan look doesn't always work in the office ;)
