Does snow in June mean skiing soon?

Did a bunch of ski resorts just see a bunch of snow in June? Hell ya they did … #morecowbell

Who knows, there might be some July turns to come? (Okay, probably not... but it happened in June/July 2022 at Sunshine Village and Mount Washington so we're not ruling it out... ; )

Either way, Juneuary is real across Alberta and BC this past few, and we’ve got a round-up of a few shots to keep you fired up and connected to what is coming in less five months from now with the start of this coming ski season. 

You can trust we’ll keep this little number updated showcasing Alberta and BC’s 2023/2024 winter season opening dates, heading into SnowSeekers' 15th season!!!

Marmot Basin looks like the BIG winner – check out the amount of snow on their deck (shot Monday June 19)!

Or how look how it blanketed the lower base area (see banner image above).

Lake Louise also got a fresh blanket of white. Up Ptarmigan, it’s looking pretty snowy right now:

Never to miss on any turns, our long-time SnowSeekers correspondent Nurse Groomer was up Parker Ridge, along the Icefields Parkway Friday (June 16) and sent in these inspirational shots and this teaser text message: “guess when the last time I was on skis? hour ago!” 

Nurse Groomer, also known as "Ted Shred" made history back in 2015 becoming the first person we know to ski all of Alberta and BC’s lift ticket serviced 78 ski areas.

Or the Determinator aka Brett Woods, founder of Dialled Rides out in Vernon who asked me the other day with this video “is it too early?”
