Here's what ski hills, runs, and lifts are now open throughout Alberta

Nov 18 2020, 12:00 pm

It’s ski season, Alberta.

While some Albertans may not be all too enthused about just how snowy it can get out here (especially when that snow comes down in October, or even September) there is a silver lining to living in a place where it’s parka season nine months of the year.

Our ski hills open nice and early.

A few have already opened their doors to skiers and snowboarders, while others have tentative opening dates set for December.

Many of the open hills only have a handful of runs operational, and we’ve updated this list as of November 18.

Here’s the current status of nine of Alberta’s ski hills:

WinSport Calgary

WinSport is expected to open for the season on November 27.
