Can you still ski at the moment in Banff

Was just wondering if it's still possible to ski there? Was wondering if any chance of booking a real late deal.

Yep, Banff, or Sunshine is open right up until the May long weekend, or Victoria Day long weekend.

What type of deal are you looking for? An entire package?

The mountains here just got a fresh coat of white paint, and there's more in the forecast.

(Reporting from Canmore, which is next door to Banff...)

A friend was skiing there yesterday - she reported eight inches of fresh powder over a hardened base. She had a great time.

You just made my blood run cold. I didn't bring skis on this trip. Stupid me.

Sorry, VP! You can bring them along on your next trip - at this rate, we'll be skiing all summer.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry at that, banff. At least the snow has stopped falling here in Calgary, for the moment...

snowing like crap all over alberta the last two days. for skiers...it's great...for those of us ready for the cabin and lake time...it is frustrating. have fun skiing. if it warms up, the lower parts will turn to slush in the afternoon so start early and enjoy.

No more skiing here in Jasper - our mountain, Marmot Basin, closed yesterday. No matter how good the conditions remain, there are just not enough skiers coming late in the season to justify keeping it open. We had snow flurries in town yesterday, but thankfully, none of it stuck around! The tulips are starting to poke up - and the dandelions!!

Not liking the snowfall here in Edmonton, at least it's not sticking. Am happy to hear about the snow at Sunshine though, we are hoping to get at least one more weekend of snowboarding in.
