Tuesday, 21 October 2003




Over 42 centimeters of natural snow and snowmaking has begun

Lake Louise, Alberta- Temperatures are beginning to drop and the ski hills are getting prepared for the much-anticipated 2003/04 ski season . Lake Louise Ski Area has started a process on October 15 that was a scientific 'miracle' 50 years ago-producing centimeter after centimeter of white stuff with or without Mother Nature's help. This season Lake Louise has upgraded the system with 75 new snow guns to produce 40% more snow than previous seasons.

With the largest snowmaking system in Canada, the ski area should be able to open with phenomenal early season conditions. Lake Louise employs 30 snowmakers working 24 hours a day to get the ski runs ready for opening day November 7th and ensure the resort's ShowTime terrain park and superpipe are in mint condition for early December, and guarantee the ski area stays open until May for the best in Spring skiing or riding conditions.

Lake Louise is proud once again host to the Men's and Women's Winterstart World Cup races. Beginning November 29th, the men will race the Downhill course followed by the Super-G race. The Women's World Cup Downhill and Super G races are scheduled for December 5th-7th.

" This is a huge expansion of our system and it will provide more snow for our guests to enjoy," says Matt Mosteller Senior Director of Business Development for the Resorts of the Canadian Rockies. "The amazing news today is that we have over 43 centimeters of natural snow as a huge snowstorm moves through the Canadian Rockies," added Mosteller.
