LMK, we're coming from Airdrie so I could meet near COP or possibly the Cochrane HWY 2 exit.

edit: I would correct your grammar the whole way though so not sure that's going to work out!!!

Update from Sunhine. No great Divide

Sunshine will open with five lifts including the Strawberry Express and Angel high-speed quads, along with WaWA, Wolverine and Jack Rabbit quads. As conditions evolve, Sunshine will provide an update on lift status, as well as a list of runs that are expected to be available. Reduced prices for opening day will be in effect.

LL update

Enjoy 1,450ft(442m) of vertical from Glacier chairlift, with Bald Eagle, Wiwaxy and Easy Street open.Tickets are 50% off regular season rates. Click here for details. Louise Plus Card holders: remember, your 1st, 4th and 7th days are free. But, until more mountain opens up, you can choose to save your 1st free day; show your Louise Plus Card at guest services and receive an additional $5 off the discounted ticket rate.

AHHH THAT SUCKS! I've been riding decent blue squares at Nakiska for two weeks now, and only greeners are opening at LL?!?

Thanks for the updates, seems like it's going to be the Wiwaxy 500 after all...

No worries. I'll check with them again in the afternoon and next morning. They promised more updates.

Might have to go to sunshine after all... I was hoping for top of the world to be open to do a some back bowling.

Yeah, top of the world is probably my favourite chair there (along with the platter)...

Where did sunshine post that ticket price of 50% off?

On this page they mention opening day tickets are $69.95 which is out to lunch. If it was $41.50 for the day I'd probably go to Sunshine instead, otherwise forget it. I'm tempted to go to Nakiska instead and wait until more of Lake Louise opens up!

Nakiska is only going to have the olympic chair open to the public until 1:30 though tomorrow (racer training on the gold until then) so unfortunately it'll all be tracked out...

Probably best to call SSV tomorrow. They said the price will change depending on how many runs they can open in the morning. $69.95 is outrageous since the sunshine/marmot card and the costco packs are both cheaper.

I don't know about the platter man... that's a long ass ride with snowboard. Couple times a day is my limit on it. I think they use it to keep relatively new people off of the sketchier terrains.

Think I made an executive decision to just do Nakiska instead unless LL opens up a whole lot more terrain. If I'm doing the one run races I'd rather only drive one hour from home! Too bad I was hoping to hit some of the stuff off the top of the world.

Yeah the platter is a leg, thigh killer for sure. It seems like it goes up a solid 30 degree slope the whole time! The best part is exactly what you said, too many people are scared to ride it so the snow up there is the best (and of course the terrain too. Last year in May I took the platter up, and then hiked up the ridge leading NW from the top, then plunged down into those chutes on the back. Great way to send off the season!
