  1. Skibig3 362″ ?!?
    First off, those are 3 separately owned resorts located far apart from each other.
    These are approximately their respective numbers.
    Norquay 70″
    Lake Louise 180″
    Sunshine Village 295″

      1. No, those are 10-year snowfall averages (2009-2019)
        All-time numbers are not much different: Norquay 90″, Lake Louise 175″, Sunshine Village 285″.
        Website claimed numbers are as follows: Norquay 120″, Lake Louise 178″, Sunshine Village 364″ (had marketed the 300″ number for many years until just recently)
