Did someone say snow? Buckle down this weekend, because we’re set to get some fluffy white stuff.  And there is much more anticipated to come.  According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac the Banff area will expect to have an above normal snowfall this season.

“The heaviest snowfalls will occur in early to mid-January, mid-to late January, and mid-to late February,” predicts the Almanac. The historically famous weather predicting journal also mentioned that the snow will continue into next week, settle the third week of November, and continue snowing all the way through December.

Coupled with the current snow blanketing the resort, skiers should expect to experience another solid start to the season.  

As for this weekend, Environment Canada predicts a 10-15 cm (4–6 in) snowfall this Saturday in the Banff region, and with Sunshine’s higher elevation up to 20 cm (8 in) is expected to fall.

This new snowfall, coupled with Sunshine’s unique location on the Continental Divide, means that the snow that falls will stay throughout the resort’s seventh month stretch.
