Canadian Resort Posts 90cm Of Snowfall in 7 Days

J2SkiNews posted Nov-2020

Snow condition are the best in the world in Western Canada at present with Sunshine ski area near Banff posting 92cm (3 feet, 1 inch) of fresh snowfall in the past 7 days, taking their season-to-date total to 2.5 metres (8 feet plus).

The ski area, along with others across western Canada, have been posting powder conditions daily with 10-20cm falling every 24 hours.

As a result the five centres already open in Alberta, including all three Banff areas and Jasper's Marmot Basin, have been increasing the amount of terrain they have available, and ski areas have also begun opening in neighbouring BC.

Sun Peak and Big White are among the latest to open with Big White immediately posting the deepest base in North America for open resorts so far at 1.2 metres (four feet).

Coronavirus-spread-prevention limitations on skier numbers to allow social-distancing combined with limited terrain open continues to cause issues at some areas, with Cypress Mountain, along with Grouse mountain one of the two areas already open on Canada's Pacific Coast, reporting on Friday it had already sold out of lift tickets for Saturday and Sunday. Almost all skiers will be Canadians with the country's borders remaining largely closed.

Canada has now joined the USA, Switzerland, and prior to it's current lockdown, Austria, in having 10 or more ski areas already open for winter 21-22.

Closed or restricted borders will be the industries problem. I can't see many risking the cost of a holiday if
it is unclear if they can actually get there.
Resorts might have to rely on the local market and that probably would not work in the alps economically.
