More Snow in the Forecast - Jan 28, 2011

Skiing powder at the Lake Louise Ski AreaIt looks like another fantastic weekend to hit the slopes of Lake Louise as Mother Nature seems poised to deliver another heaping helping of fresh beautiful snow to the Rockies biggest ski area.

It is currently snowing at Lake Louise and weather forecasts are calling for upwards of 25 cms by Saturday night with even more snow expected on Sunday.  

With 117 runs open, a mid-mountain base of 138 cms, and all lifts and facilities wide open, it’s shaping up to be another stellar weekend of skiing and riding at the Lake!

 

Snow Cross Course Official Opening

The new Snow Cross Course at Lake LouiseThis Saturday, January 29, also marks the official grand opening of the new Lake Louise “Snow Cross” course. Mike Roberston, silver medalist in the Boardercross event at last year’s Winter Olympics in Whistler, will be in attendance and will officially open the course at 11 am.

 Following a brief ribbon-cutting ceremony, Mike will put his world-class skills to the test as he competes against such media heavy weights as Hal Gardiner (XL 103 Radio), Fraser Tuff (X92.9 Radio) and Rob Murray (Mountain FM Radio) in a winner take all event. May the best man win!

The new “Snow Cross” course is located on the lower Juniper run at the base of the mountain and can be readily viewed from riding the Glacier Express Quad chair.

Once Mike Robertson and the media monsters have wrapped up their fun race, the action gets a lot more serious as the Skiercross/Boardercross Open Series #1 event takes centre stage for the rest of the weekend.

This event is the first of Lake Louise’s two part Skiercross/Boardercross series. This amateur series welcomes skiers and riders of all ability levels who want to get a taste of one of the most exciting sports around.

Skiers will race Saturday, and Snowboarders will race Sunday in this “Last Chance Qualifier (LCQ) format race. LCQ is elimination style racing which means that every athlete will race 2-8 times over the course of the day.
