Snow overview for Canada
Thursday 26 November 2015

The sun was shining and the skies were clear across much of Canada on Thursday 26th November. Conditions in many resorts remain excellent thanks to the large amount of early season snowfall across the west coast.

Alberta is still the place to be if you are looking for some pre-Christmas powder turns, with Banff enjoying a fantastic start to the season. Lake Louise (104cm) welcomes the Men’s World Cup this coming weekend so be sure to stop by to watch the action if you fortunate enough to be enjoying some early season skiing in the area. The weather is set to be sunny over the weekend, with temperatures to remain above freezing during the day.

It is much the same across British Columbia. The sunshine and higher temperatures that are in store for the weekend will offer the perfect conditions to get out and enjoy the fantastic early season snowfall. Kicking Horse (30/60cm) is looking to get lifts turning for the first time this season, with nearly all of the mid-lower mountain terrain open to riders this coming weekend. This is the first time they will be opening early in their history – a testament to just what a good start to the season it has been.

On the east coast, Tremblant (10cm) is set to get the first lifts of the season turning on Thursday, with Mont Sainte Anne (10cm) not far behind with a projected opening of this weekend. The surface on offer will be largely artificial having not had any significant snowfall in the last few weeks. However, some light flurries are expected over the weekend which will do much to increase the coverage and base depths in the area. Temperatures will remain low which will see both resorts able to continue their round the clock snow making ability.

Red Mountain review
Jim Searle

Just got back from Red Mountain and Rossland. Brilliant mountain with the steepest and toughest terrain and best off-piste we have ever experienced. The snow was great with 12cms of fresh on our second day and the place gets over 300 inches of white fluffy a year. The resort has 1700 acres of terrain but in effect it has much more as you can ski virtually anywhere, we rarely found the same route twice and so never got bored.

Most of the mountain is covered with trees and there is some great gladed terrain in paradise bowl and on the front face of granite in the powder fields. Paradise bowl also has most of the intermediate terrain and is pretty much ski anywhere, there is also some new intermediate terrain at the bottom of the mountain. Jumbo, beer belly and powder fields were all tough but superb black diamond off piste runs, the lack of piste markers means you have to stay on your toes and a couple of times we strayed into double black diamond terrain, not to be taken lightly in this resort. Most blues here would equate to reds or easy blacks in France or Austria, some of the double blacks are as hard as anything in St Anton, Chamonix, or Val D'Isere, expert only really does mean it!

The resort plans to open up Grey Mountain (more awesome terrain) next year which will make a big difference and increase to 4200 acres over the next 10 years or so. The big let down at the moment are the lifts which are slow, old and uncomfortable, although the new owner plans new fast lifts in the near future, he really needs to deliver on this as the lift pass (about £190 for 6 days) is no cheaper than resorts with fast chairs that dont break every week!! Luckily as the place is generaly quiet there are virtually no lift queues except on US holidays.

Both the Paradise lodge and the Base lodge are good places to get burgers, wraps and burritos, of typical north american proportions.

Rossland is charming and very friendly, with good restaurants such as idgies, the grind is great for a coffee and a huge sandwhich and Clancys is great for a big breakfast, esp the waffles. There are a couple of good places to drink such as the sports bar in the prestige hotel, the best however was Nowhere Special lounge, go when there is a local band on and the place rocks. However in general the place is laid back and not party central unless you can find a house party. You can also stay on mountain (5 km away) in some swanky new condo's but their is more going on in Rossland, we would rather drive 5 mins to skiing and stumble home from the pub rather than vice versa.

Getting to Red/Rossland is not as hard as people think as United flies to Spokane via Chicago (£440 + 60 to upgrade) then its a 3 hour drive from the airport. If they do start transatlantic flights into kelowna (Serving Revelstoke etc) that will benfit Red as it is only 3 1/2 hpurs away.

We also stopped at 49 Degrees North for a days skiing on our way back to Spokane. The skiing was much easier with the double blacks equating to a tough blue at Red, but worth a day to check it out and the snow was very good. Days lift pass only cost £25. If staying in Spokane make sure you stay at the Davenport Hotel.

In conclusion: the best unspoiled resort in North America, go before the crowds turn up!!!!
