WOW, planning a trip to Calgary to see one of my best friends who's moved there from shitty Toronto. Was going to ask if a Dec 1st trip would allow me to get some riding in...but I guess this answers the question?

Louise makes snow and opens on the 10th of Nov i think.

Sunshine is usually open with decent snow by then, you should be OK then but later in dec is better and really feb-april are the best in alberta i think.

Ya i grew up in the London area, so needless to say i didn't learn to ride until i moved away from there. Alberta/bc is pretty amazing for snowboarding.

I think i skied 5 times before i moved away. Last time i was rode back in London i told my cousine that i didn't understand how a person can get good at boler MOUNTAIN lol, i think i came off as kind of a dick.

Nah I totally feel you, It takes some serious commitment to become good here. Let's take Horseshoe Valley for examble... longest run lasts 45 seconds! It's crazy

Not sure if you are familiar with the "hill", but I started off learning how to board in Glen Eden. I spent my first 2 months there, and when I first drove up to Mount St. Louis (right next to Horseshoe) I thought I had arrived in some sort of foreign paradise.

I have since learned that even the famed Blue Mountain is but a speedbump relative to what exists out west haha.

I hope in a year or two to be able to take at least one or two trips a winter out and see the rest of the world...will probably ruin it for me when I come back though.

I'm getting a season pass at Blue.... :dunno: But it looks like I'm opening my season up with some Lake Louise riding, Guessing I'll hate my beloved Blue after that.
