Rejoice, skiers and snowboarders! Lake Louise Ski Resort officially opens this week.
And while Lake Louise is the first hill to open in Alberta, the other resorts aren't too far behind. Soon you'll be able to rip down many of the mountains in the southern part of the province.
We've rounded up some of the opening days for Alberta's most popular hills. For good measure, we've thrown in a few B.C. resorts that are a quick drive from the Alberta/B.C. border and are popular with Albertans.
Keep in mind many of the openings are weather permitting, so be sure to keep your fingers crossed for lots of snow!
Which ski hill are you most excited to visit this winter?
