It's only mid-November but Lake Louise Mountain Resort is already making history with record snowfall

Calgary, AB – November 16, 2006 – Lake Louise Mountain Resort has been in operation since November 11th, but the world-famous Resort is already breaking records in terms of snowfall and amount of terrain open for November. Beginning Saturday, November 18th, all lifts are scheduled to be operating, with the front side, Powder bowls, and Larch area wide open for skiing and riding.

As of 6am today, the mountain has received 84cm (33.1 inches) of snow since November 1st, and 62cm (24.4 inches) in the past nine days alone. The settled base is over 89 cm (35 inches) in the alpine, and the Resort is calling for more snow today.

Says Matt Mosteller, Senior Director of Business Development for the Resort, “We have the most snow and best conditions that we’ve ever seen for this time of year. The Rockies are being buried with snow right now. The skiing, scenery and snow are spectacular.”

Snow conditions have been given the green light from the International Ski Federation (FIS) to host a World Cup. The Race Organizing Committee is now proceeding with final preparations for the upcoming Winterstart Lake Louise World Cup, proudly presented by Bombardier.

When you’re ready for a break, The Lodge of the Ten Peaks, Temple Lodge and Whiskeyjack Lodge will be open with food and beverage service. Regular season lift ticket prices will be in effect.

With over 4200 acres of terrain, 4 mountain faces, and #1 scenery, Lake Louise Mountain Resort is a world-class jewel in the Canadian Rockies. For more information, snow report and vacation packages, please visit www.skilouise.com.
