Snow overview for Canada
Thursday 23 March 2017

Thursday 23rd of March was a varied day in terms of snow conditions in Canada, with a mix of fresh powder and spring conditions depending on the resort you were visiting.

Snow keeps on coming in Lake Louise (164/243cm) which got another 5cm overnight and had yet another superb days skiing today. Nearby Mount Norquay (68/92cm) was offering more spring conditions than anything else. Whistler (323cm) experienced a powder day today, with 20cm falling in the past 24 hours. Pockets of fresh powder could still be found in Marmot Basin (156cm) where conditions have been excellent recently.

Elsewhere, despite getting a dusting of new snow overnight, the slopes in Red Mountain (245cm) were still very much spring like. It was an identical picture in Silver Star (147/237cm).

Holiday in Lake Louise -Staying at the Deer Lodge
Overall rating: 5 stars
Andrew Stocks
Visited: March 2017

Just back from a fantastic holiday in Lake Louise, snow almost everyday for 2 weeks! We stayed at the Deer Lodge (not modern - it is an old lodge - but for us that is the charm!), a lovely, cosy, quiet, relaxing hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food is excellent and good value. The Fairmount Chateau is 5 minutes walk away with a variety of restaurants, and the lovely lake and forest -areas with excellent walking and snowshoeing trails. We skied in Lake Louise and Sunshine Village (free ski bus to Sunshine Village sun/thur) - all with great varied runs. Apres was a walk then wine and a good book infront of a cosy fire in the lounge area - great for us (may not be exciting enough for some!). Loved it - would go back tomorrow!!!
