  BANFF, ALBERTA, Mar 02 (MARKET WIRE) --
Skiers and riders can rejoice as 42 cm (17 in) of fresh powder fell on
Sunshine Village Ski and Snowboard Resort over the past 24 hours.

    The new snowfall is attributed to the Pineapple Express system converging
on the Rocky Mountains and dropping its precipitation in the form of
abundant snow throughout Friday and into today. 

    "What a tremendous way to kick off the month of March," begins Dave
Riley, Chief Operating Officer, Sunshine Village Ski and Snowboard
Resort. "With our 12 high speed lifts and 109 runs open to guests, this
new snow has provided epic conditions for skiers and riders this weekend
and leading into the spring ski season."

    The abundance of snow has elevated the already-impressive snow pack to
198 cm (78 in) with an incredible 629 cm (247 in) of the white stuff
falling on the resort to date. 

    The resort is famous for its legendary all-natural champagne powder and
its unique snow farming technique, which uses 35 km of snow fencing to
capture the snow on the resort's three big mountains. 

    For media inquiries, still or video images, or on-mountain photo
opportunities, call Tanya Otis, Manager of Media Relations at
