Summer Snowfall in the Canadian Rockies

J2SkiNews posted 08-Sep

Ski areas around Banff in the Canadian Rockies are the latest North American ski resorts to report fresh snowfall in the final weeks of summer.

There are currently no ski areas open for skiing or boarding in North America, other than the indoor Big SNOW centre in New Jersey, but late summer light snowfall has been reported over the past few weeks on high slopes in Oregon and Utah in the Western US and New Hampshire in the East.

The latest snowfall is believed to be the first of the 23-24 pre-season in Canada and has turned the slopes briefly white at Sunshine (pictured below) and Lake Louise (pictured above) ski areas, both usually among the first to open in the country in two months' time at the start of November.

US ski areas hope to start opening in the Midwest and at resorts high in the Colorado Rockies next month if conditions allow with snowmaking likely to get underway later this month.
