2 Alberta resorts are already open 7 days a week and it’s not even mid-November yet!
Seven-day ski weeks have officially started in Alberta with Lake Louise Ski Resort and Mt. Norquay kicking off the ski season more than a week earlier than last year.
The skiing and riding started out on Nov. 1 like any good winter morning - crisp, calm, and full of promise.

With any good opening weekend, it’s time to bring out the costumes and gear.
A pair of GS race skis have come out of storage after 45 years!
The winner of our Lake Louise opening day passes was thrilled to get back to these runs!
Skiers wasted no time brushing up some kicker tricks.
Toe-edge spins were looking epic.
With all this great early season snow we are so thankful that @skilouise has started turning the lifts a week early for us. Just 12 more days until our first program kicks off for the winter #bcbanff . . . . . . . . . . #banff #mybanff #lakelouise #justlakeit #Canada #alberta #nationalpark #snowboard #ski #mountains #snow #winter #scenery #travel #gapyear #instructor #adventure #bcbanff #explorealberta
The corduroy looked good for hitting those edges.
There was enough snow to flirt with the glades.
This video sums up the awesomeness at Mt. Norquay
After its earliest opening ever, Nakiska Weekend 2 was even better. Can you say 20 cms of snow?
The FOMO is real elsewhere as snow seekers are just itching to get out on other local hills and jump in on this early-season snowiness.
