Spring Skiing in Banff National Park

I feel like I do a post on this every year...but seriously...it is required! My favourite time to ski in Banff/Lake Louise is mid-March and April. The snow is amazing and the temperatures are around 0 Degrees Celsius. This year is no exception and I think 2012 may be the best Spring Skiing I've experienced yet!

Around three weeks ago we had the biggest snow storm in years, with heavy snow starting to fall in the evening on March 4th and finally stopping in the morning of March 6th. Here I am skiing in Lake Louise after the snow stopped on Tuesday March 6th:


We've had more snow in town since then, but the ski hills have been receiving almost 5-10cm almost nightly! And today? I wake up to another awesome storm...I was covered in snow by the time I got to work (with a guest saying to me as I walked inside "wow...you're covered in snow"). This photo was taken on my walk to work today (Mar22):


Here is why you need to experience spring skiing in Banff/Lake Louise:
~Warmer temperatures
~Champagne powder
~No lift lines if skiing midweek
~Sunshine Village is only 15cm away from breaking their all time snowfall season record!
~Night skiing, tubing or enjoying a cup of tea at the top at Mount Norquay
~The Powder Bowls at Lake Louise
~Weekend concerts at each mountain
~Sitting outside at any of the mountains while enjoying a BBQ lunch & beverage break

See you all on the slopes!
