First ski resort to open in Canada this winter: Mt. Norquay opens tomorrow, Friday, November 3rd
BANFF, AB (November 2, 2017): For skiers and riders chasing winter magic in the Rockies, snow days start tomorrow!
After receiving 27cm of natural snowfall overnight, Mt. Norquay will commence winter operations tomorrow, Friday, November 3, 2017*, from 11am to 4pm. It will be Canada’s first ski resort to open for the 2017/18 season.
Mt. Norquay is offering early opening pricing on lift tickets (Adult $29, Youth/Senior $24 and Child $17). It will be running the Cascade chairlift from 11am to 4pm tomorrow, then from 9am to 4pm, 7 days a week, from this Saturday, November 4.
To celebrate early season runs, Mt. Norquay is also offering a limited-time-only offer: honouring its Fall Season Pass Sale prices on all season pass types, from today until midnight this Sunday, November 5.
“This means skiers and riders can enjoy both pre-season discounts (up to 40% off) as well as an extra-long season at Norquay,” says Andre Quenneville, General Manager at Mt. Norquay.
Quenneville says the resort has been busy making $1.5 million worth of upgrades for 2017/18.
“We’ve added a brand new, state-of-the-art Piston Bully snow cat to our fleet to keep our signature Norquay corduroy as pristine as ever, and we’ve made major mechanical upgrades to our chairlifts, including Mystic and Spirit, and the famed North American Chairlift.” 
Skiers and riders will also notice brand new washrooms, and some great new rental gear.
"These upgrades are our way of making our guests' snow days with us that much better, and keeping the ride to your runs as smooth and speedy as possible,” Quenneville says.
Mt Norquay's popular Starlight Dinner events are also coming up in January and March 2018, where guests can enjoy an intimate evening dining experience at the resort’s iconic 1950s teahouse, the Cliffhouse Bistro.
*For more fun in the snow this season, Mt. Norquay’s Snow Tube Park is expected to open on Friday, December 1, 2017.
