“In fact it’s never happened before in Canada,” said Matt Mosteler, a spokesman for the resort. “It’s the earliest opening of a ski resort in Canada ever.”
 
“Iit’s mid-winter like,” he added. ”It’s incredibly amazing because it feels like January. You look around and the surrounding mountains are all white, the trees are loaded with snow — it’s just really cool.”
 
This is the second season in a row that Nakiska has been able to open its ski runs for the Halloween weekend, and the second year in a row that it was the first resort in Canada to open. This year’s announcement beat last year’s by just one day.
 
Alberta residents are digging out from 12 cm of snow reported at Calgary airport, between 5 and 15 cm of snow across all of Southern Alberta, and locally higher accumulations in some areas, around 20-25 cm.
