It may have been a rough start, but despite mild weather the ski season is still going strong Monster glades right now! #yyc #skicanadanow #explorealberta #powday #nakattack #skinakiska pic.twitter.com/P6jkzmuaiF— Nakiska Ski Area (@SkiNakiska) April 15, 2015 Warm weather has caused rumours to spread that ski hills have been struggling this year.Powder Matt from Nakiska told 660News the rumors are wrong.“Nakiska has just been absolutely amazing and we’re still going strong.

Their biggest problem is luring people away from the golf course.Markum said, while it might be warm in Calgary, it’s still below zero on the hill and people can take advantage of the conditions.Several resorts in western Canada struggle with low snow amounts and melting conditions for the bulk of the main season.Castle Mountain was forced to shut down months early due to the in climate weather.Most resorts report the success of the ski season is down slightly from last year but indicate the perception is off due to a few years of excellent snowfall previous to the 2014/2015 season.Fantastic spring skiing @SunshineVillage on a bluebird day, with 170 cm snow base in April, couldn’t ask for more. pic.twitter.com/UYQ0JRmUWd— Asad Chaudhary (@asadyyc) April 25, 2015 Due to the current conditions at Castle Mountain Resort we will be unable to continue our winter operations at… http://t.co/Krb3W1zyIT— Castle Mountain (@SkiCastle) February 15, 2015 A slow ski season?
