Kicking Horse, BC, yesterday (scheduled to close April 4th). For a lot of resorts in Canada, they are not necessarily closing due to lack of snow but rather lack of crowds. Image courtesy of Kicking Horse Mountain Resort.

It’s that time of year – as the warm temperatures begin to roll in, it is also that time when we need to unfortunately say goodbye to skiing for the summer months. For some resorts in western Canada, that may only be a week away, and for others you may still have two months of skiing to get in. Whatever resort you are looking at, take it as a final reminder to get out on the slopes while you can and enjoy the last couple weeks of skiing.

  1. It’s surprising that up north as far as many of these ski resorts are that they can’t stay open quit a bit longer into spring.

    1. As the article stated, they generally close due to lack of crowds not lack of snow.
      Many haven’t even reached maximum snow depths yet.
      I remember going to a few resorts out east and in the states where there would be half the runs of dirt showing and even places where walking was required yet the crowds dictated the resort was still open. If that were the case around here, some of these resorts could operate into June or July every year.

  2. Hudson Bay – April 5th
    Manning Park – April 5th
    Mt. Cain – April 10th
    Sasquatch – April 5th
    Shames – April 4th
