Banff reports 13 feet of champagne powder Posted on January 29, 2008 by Richard Irwin Mountain High Ski Resort reported another 12 to 20 inches of new snow, bringing the weeklong storm total to close to 6 feet! That’s the most snow the Wrightwood resort has seen since the big 2004/05 season when they got 278 inches of snow. I thought that was very impressive until my friends in Banff Springs, Canada, sent me their latest email. A fresh blast of winter weather in Banff National Park brought only 11 inches of new snow last week. Guess all their snow fell down here. BUT, so far this season, more than 13 feet of champagne powder has fallen on the three resorts of Banff, Lake Louise and Sunshine Village (pictured courtesy of Sunshine Village.) The snowfall is set to continue this weekend with heavy snow storms in the forecast. Skiing in the Canadian Rockies outside Calgary is still a great bargain. LA skiers can buy vacation packages for as little as $90 a person per day. These featuring some of Banff and Lake Louise’s most affordable lodging at either Deer Lodge, Inns of Banff, Lake Louise Inn or The Bow View Lodge. and Skiers also get a tri-area lift ticket valid at Ski Norquay, Lake Louise Mountain Resort and Sunshine Village. Package prices are based on 4 Night/ 3 Days of skiing. For a quote call (877) 754-7080.
