BANFF, AB — Mt. Norquay, Banff’s best closest ski resort, will be opening its doors for the season this weekend. The time has come to dust off your skis and snowboards and head up to Mt. Norquay to get some turns in on the Cascade chair, now open on weekends, as well as Friday, Nov. 11th.

The combination of cold temperatures and hard work by the snowmaking crew at Norquay has allowed them to open with fantastic snow conditions.

Mt. Norquay is excited to announce the re-opening of the tea house a-top Norquay, with sight-seeing tours on its famous North American Chair that offer breathtaking views overlooking the town of Banff.

Full-on opening day is scheduled for Friday, Dec. 23rd. A new mid un-load station has been added to Spirit Chair along with the expansion of beginner terrain, offering beginners twice as many runs to learn and practice on. Night Skiing and tubing will now be offered on Friday and Saturday evenings starting Jan 13th, 2012.
