    Everyone who is considering skiing at Rogers Pass this winter should visit http://pc.gc.ca/skirogers. This tells you why you need winter permits to ski most areas in Glacier National Park, why you can never ski some areas and how you can get a daily or annual winter permit to ski restricted areas which are open. N.B. the winter restricted areas have changed this year to consolidate them into 4 larger areas. The quiz for the annual winter permits is now online.

    Rogers Pass is actually in the BC Interior, not in the Rockies, and most TGR forum reports on skiing there are posted in the 2019/2020 BC interior thread

    Opening day exceeded expectations. Not saying it was good, but nice for this time of year, and good to be outside on skis again

    Race training started this weekend at Pano. Biking is still fantastic in the valley too.

    Day 2 was skiing. Day one was skiing, but in a cloud so wetter and softer than day 2. Good to be sliding around in November

    You must be new. No need to take a shuttle if you know how to traverse. Plus around these parts, if we ski 80 percent of the hill before mid december it's considered a blessing.
    Hope you got out and welcome to TGRrrr

    Nice timing. Upper mountain opened today and Ridge chair probably tomorrow. If we could squeeze 10ish cms in the next 5 days you should get some decent turns

    LL is opening paradise bowl/chair tomorrow, and more of ER 2/3 for the weekend.

    still sharks around, but you can also find that in mid march around here.

    overall really nice today

    Super windy at Marmot yesterday which made for some creamy mid mountain turns. Looking pretty good for mid November.

    Looking like we'll likely head up and check out the world cup next weekend. Thinking we might try to fit in a day of touring as well. Is there something fairly straightforward in the LL vicinity that's tourable / skiable right now? Bow summit maybe? Or is that just gonna be unreasonably sharky?

    Bow summit area and across the road will be fine - lots of people have been skiing around there in the past few weeks and coverage seems pretty good. I last skied there at the end of October and it was easy enough to dodge the sharks then so you'll be fine now (with the caveat that it's the Rockies so there will always be some rocks). The avi conditions have been touchy in the immediate Lake Louise area with quite a few slides in yet-to-be-opened resort terrain and a special mention in a recent bulletin.
