There’s a silver lining to all of this week’s snowfall warnings.
Mt. Norquay Ski Resort is planning to open its runs to skiers and snowboarders this Friday morning, becoming the first Canadian resort to open for the 2017/2018 season.
The heavy snows falling on Southern Alberta have seen 27 cm of snowfall hit the ski mountain since Wednesday night.
Skiers and snowboarders will be able to hit the slopes as early as 11 am on Friday, November 3, and can stay on the mountain as late as 4 pm.
