BANFF, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Jan. 8, 2013) - Over 20 cm (8 in) of fresh powder fell on Sunshine Village Ski and Snowboard Resort Monday, providing a solid start to the second week of 2013.
Following a successful holiday season at the Canadian Rockies resort complete with warm temperatures and bluebird sunny skies, Sunshine Village is poised to receive an addition 20 cm over the next couple of days.
"Sunshine received incredible early season snowfalls which laid the foundation for an exceptional start to the year," begins Tanya Otis, Manager of Media Relations, Sunshine Village Ski and Snowboard Resort. "The recent snow enables us to continue providing guests with world class conditions and soft powder turns into this New Year."
Sunshine Village's current snow pack has settled to 139 cm (55 in), providing an impressive mid-season base and this week's forecasted snow will result in nearly 450 cm (177 in) of the white stuff falling on the resort to date.
The resort is famous for its legendary all-natural champagne powder snow and its unique snow farming technique, which uses 35 km of snow fencing to capture the snow on the resort's three big mountains.
