Snow alert: winter ahead as AB, BC ski areas report snow


Winter stormed back into Western Canada early this week, as first one resort and then another reported new snow, starting on Monday and carrying through Wednesday morning.

Marmot Basin, Apex, Big White, Kicking Horse, Revelstoke, Sunshine, Red... the list just keeps growing and we're counting down the days!

Who will be first to open? Will it stick?

Given our daily ritual now until ski season is to check the webcams of our favourite ski resorts across Alberta and BC, trust we are here to keep you connected to the start of the season.

Snow at Marmot, new Knob Chair underway

The snow gods are smiling on Marmot Basin as the hill works to build new infrastructure to get us to the goods this season. Have a look at the plans here and get stoked for 2023-24!

Spend some time on Marmot’s conditions page and just let that 360 view sink in…the weather is turning and very soon we’ll be making turns on this Canadian Rockies gem. 

Penticton’s Apex Mountain Resort saw a bit of the white gold this morning—check out the video here.

Sunshine stoke hits 10%

Our round up of expected opening dates for the 2023/24 season gives you all the advance notice you need to get on with your plans for this coming year of epic. So our question to you is: 

Where is the season gonna take you this year?

Join our conversation on SnowSeekers Facebook to let us know your goals for the season!

Is this the year you’ll hit 10 different resorts, how about 100 days on snow???

Or perhaps it could be as easy as getting 10 days in given you’ve been absent from the slopes for a while.

Whatever it is, here is a story that can help you get in shape for the season.

Or perhaps you are now inspired to further the stoke by clicking into a few of the new ski flicks for the season.

Those in Calgary can saddle up to Freshtival Oct 13 to check out the latest Matchstick Productions flick.

Edmonton producers, you got a flick we need to promote? Let us know so we can all get back into our snow mentality… now!

Soon we ski,

Doc Pow and Team SnowSeekers
