Snow overview for Canada
Monday 27 March 2017

Spring was creeping in in Canada on Monday 27th of March. Nonetheless, new snow keeps trickling in meaning things are fresh and good in many resorts.

There was the possibility of laying down fresh tracks in Sunshine Village (227cm) thanks to a dusting of fresh snow overnight. It’s starting to really feel like spring in Banff at the moment, but an excellent spring at that, thanks to the incredible amounts of snow that have fallen this month.

Elsewhere, spring conditions had kicked in at Fernie (299cm), Kicking Horse (243cm) and Kimberley (178cm) among other places. Expect resorts to soften up as the day goes on.

In Quebec, it was a miserable day in Mont Tremblant (88cm) where it was cloudy and sleety. Conditions were better in Mont Sainte Anne (94/144cm) as the snow was falling there.

Love Banff, the town is lively, friendly, lots to do. The hotels are all quite good but the Banff Springs is just magnificent, if you can afford it just once, do it. We always hire a car and drive to the ski resorts Lake Louise and Sunshine where the skiing is absolutely marvellous for all abilities but you can get a buss which are very frequent and were free with a lift pass the last time we used one. We love tree skiing which is why we travel so far from England but its always worth it. I think we have been about twelve times now, which is a lot more than any other Canadian or U.S resort and were going back this December and cannot wait
Go there you will love it
