Winter has Arrived in Banff, Alberta

Sunshine Village

Cold winter morning at Sunshine Village Ski Resort

Last week, I shared a few photos that I took while travelling around Banff National Park, Canada, and I am truly humbled by the number of wonderful comments that were submitted, so I decided to show you a few more.

Over the past week, Mother Nature decided to bless us with 30 inches of snow, which has everyone in town talking about one thing: skiing!

November is an exciting time of year for local residents of Banff. The hustle and bustle of the summer tourism season has come and gone, traffic and parking are easy to find. The local ski resorts start teasing us with photos and potential start dates for the upcoming ski season. A fresh crop of Aussies are running around town in their “jumpers” looking to get all the necessary gear that is required for an extended ski holiday in Canada. It truly is an exciting time of year!

It’s at this time of year that I look through old ski and snowboard photos and get myself psyched up for the coming season. Here are a few that I hope you will enjoy seeing as much as I did taking them.

Fall in the Canadian Rockies

Banff, Alberta, Canada

My brother-in-law, Kevin, has an amazing eye for photography. It comes naturally for him, yet he’s so nonchalant about it you’d think it wasn’t a big deal. This week he snapped a few photos with his phone in the Canadian Rockies and they almost make me want to visit. Then… I’m reminded of the excessively cold temperatures and endless snow and I forget all about it. Would you rather be at the white, snowy mountains or the white, sandy beaches? Continue reading
