After an awesome opening day at Banff Sunshine, the resort has continued to receive the fresh pow with up to 28cm falling at the resort this week. Alongside the snowfall, the mountain operations team has been working hard to keep the slopes in top condition. And the good news is that two more chairlifts, Jackrabbit and Wolverine, are now officially open for the season!
