The date will mark two significant milestones; the earliest the resort has EVER opened in their 95-year history, and they will be the first resort in Canada to open for the season. Last season they opened on November 1st.
Regions of Alberta and British Columbia have received up to two feet of snow the last few days as winter arrived with a bang, and with the potential for a few more inches before Saturday, the opening day should be a day to remember.
