The Canadian ski resort of Lake Louise in Banff is the latest to extend its ski season after a record snowfall in March.

The total snowfall last month was 204.8cm, and only last week at the beginning of April Lake Louise was new terrain — C-Gully — with more snow forecast.

With that in mind, and a snowpack of well over 2m, the resort decided to extend its season by an extra week to Sunday, 11 May.

Lake Louise is the biggest ski area in the Banff region, with 4,200 acres of pistes served by nine lifts. Some 40 per cent of the terrain is covered by snow making.

Last month, Breckenridge in the USA announced it was to close a week later, on 27 April, and Cortina d’Ampezzo in Italy added a whopping three extra weeks to its ski season, and is due to close on 1 May.
