Nakiska Ski Area, Alberta announced on Wednesday that it will have the earliest opening in the mountain’s history later this month.
The resort wrote in a news release:
“Here at Nakiska Ski Area we have been lucky to have Mother Nature give us some of the biggest and earliest significant snowstorms we’ve ever seen, allowing us to start snowmaking at a roaring pace and to open the resort for skiing/riding the earliest we have ever been able to in our 31 year history!”
The hill will open for a preview weekend on October 26th and 27th. Regular season skiing will commence on November 15th.
“We are very thankful to be able to open up this early to provide skiing and riding to our valued season pass-holders and day ticket guests,” senior vice-president of marketing and resort experiences said.
He said that mountain operations have been working round the clock making snow and getting the runs ready to open.
Nakiska has received a significant amount of snow in recent weeks, with officials reporting a total of 25 centimeters falling on the hill during the region’s significant snowfall on October 9th. Winter is here!
