Calgary, AB – November 16, 2006 – Lake Louise Mountain Resort has been in operation since November 11th, but the world-famous Resort is already breaking records in terms of snowfall and amount of terrain open for November. Beginning Saturday, November 18th, all lifts are scheduled to be operating, with the front side, Powder bowls, and Larch area wide open for skiing and riding.
As of 6am today, the mountain has received 84cm (33.1 inches) of snow since November 1st, and 62cm (24.4 inches) in the past nine days alone. The settled base is over 89 cm (35 inches) in the alpine, and the Resort is calling for more snow today.
Says Matt Mosteller, Senior Director of Business Development for the Resort, “We have the most snow and best conditions that we’ve ever seen for this time of year. The Rockies are being buried with snow right now. The skiing, scenery and snow are spectacular.”
Snow conditions have been given the green light from the International Ski Federation (FIS) to host a World Cup. The Race Organizing Committee is now proceeding with final preparations for the upcoming Winterstart Lake Louise World Cup, proudly presented by Bombardier.
When you’re ready for a break, The Lodge of the Ten Peaks, Temple Lodge and Whiskeyjack Lodge will be open with food and beverage service. Regular season lift ticket prices will be in effect.
With over 4200 acres of terrain, 4 mountain faces, and #1 scenery, Lake Louise Mountain Resort is a world-class jewel in the Canadian Rockies. For more information, snow report and vacation packages,

About The Bombardier Lake Louise Winterstart World Cup
The Lake Louise Mountain Resort hosts the world’s best Downhill and Super G alpine athletes for two weeks of World Cup ski racing to kick off both the men’s and women’s 2006-07 speed events. The men’s races are scheduled to take place on November 25th and 26th, and the women’s races will run December 1st to 3rd.
The Bombardier Lake Louise Winterstart is the premier annual event in the sport of alpine skiing. Lake Louise is one of the world's very few venues that will play host to both the men’s and women's speed events of the World Cup tour held at the end of November and the beginning of December.
Lake Louise has become one of the favorite stops on the tour because of the renowned caliber of the events, the world-class setting of the ski area, the village, and The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. We hope to see you on the hill as we cheer on our athletes.

The recent snowfall is just enough to get us really excited, but not enough to open the resort. We are postponing opening day until we receive either cooler temperatures to make additional snow, or we receive another storm. The week of November 20th looks promising for opening, so stay tuned for an announcement and think snow!

The 2007 U.S. Snowboarding Race to the Cup series opens Monday at Copper Mountain with nearly 20 inches of fresh snow blanketing the Colorado resort in the past week. The first of three stops on the calendar, the Nov. 20-21 event features both parallel giant slalom and parallel slalom with a total purse of $3000 on the line for each event.
Sandwiched in between a sports science training camp in Park City, UT and the Thanksgiving holiday, U.S. Team riders moved directly from four days in the gym to an additional four days of 6:00 a.m. lift rides at Copper. The resort allows teams to train daily, prior to the mountain's 9:00 a.m. opening to the public.
"We're all a little bit tired," said reigning national champion Justin Reiter (Steamboat Springs, CO), "but we'll take a couple of days off now to rest our bodies, then get right back into preparing for the race. After Thanksgiving, it's pretty much full-on competition until spring, so it's good to have this one close to home."
"Copper is always a great event," added Head Coach Steve Persons. "They do a great job of preparing the race hill and we always have a big field for this event. The Canadians are here, the Swedes and then all the club programs, so the competition is pretty tight."
With a month-long break from the World Cup, which resumes Dec. 3 in S. Viglio di Marebbe, Italy, the event regularly attracts an international field of top-level alpine riders. Yet it also serves as the springboard for young riders across the country, each eager to qualify for the next level by going head-to-head with the World's elite in the Race to the Cup.
"I do love competing here at Copper Mountain, it's always fun for me and I've had some pretty good success here," said 2002 Olympic bronze medalist Chris Klug (Aspen, CO), who won back-to-back races at Copper last season. "Anytime I get a chance to race in Colorado, my friends and family can come and check it out and that's pretty special."
Both men and women will race PGS on the 20th with PSL to follow on the 21st. The series then rolls west to Steamboat Springs, CO, Jan. 5-6 and concludes on the East Coast at Vermont's Bromley Mountain on March 10-11.

We've got four scheduled openings this week and one big surprise due to all the great snow fallin' from the skies. Winter Park opened Wednesday with four inches of fresh powder. The parties begin at Vail and Eldora this Friday, November 17th and Crested Butte on Saturday, November 18th. But wait there's more...
Aspen's already picked up 16 inches of snow this week so opening five days early only makes sense. Hit up Aspen on Saturday, November 18th and see for yourself Colorado's awesome snow conditions.
With some mountains receiving up to 30 inches of powder, resorts are reporting mid-winter conditions and it's not even Thanksgiving! Click here for Turkey Day openings, and remember to check out our deals page for great prices for savvy skiers
