Snow overview for Canada
Thursday 30 March 2017

What a superb season for North America and Canada in particular. We keep waiting for snowfall to subside but it just keeps on coming. A number of powder days were on offer today in our featured resorts – simply sensational.

Some of the best conditions in Canada can be found at Lake Louise (151/226cm), where despite it being mid-march snow just will not stop falling. Another dusting overnight has freshened up the slopes and it feels more like mid-winter than early spring. The award for the most snow, however, has to go to Big White (283cm) where 30cm fell the night before last. It’s a late season powder day for the resort, which is having a season that is nothing short of exceptional. Other places where fresh snow is abundant are Red Mountain (283cm) and Revelstoke (296cm) but there are others.

prestige Mountain Resort(Rossland).Arrived late evening.Check in smooth.Underground parking.Good sized room.Ate in hotel restaurant,food good.
Around 10km drive to Red Mountain.Base station carpark a muddy mess due to 5C temp and lack of recent snowfall.Construction work ongoing on new base station building.Friendly and informative staff at the ticket desk.Decided breakfast to start in daylodge,should have bought 1 to share its massive.
Red is set over 3 mountains covering just short of 3000 acres lift serviced areas.Took Red chair to top of Red Mtn,Oldest chair i have ever seen,warm up run on Sallys Alley/Dales trail,back up and War eagle.Ski racing was on between Red chair and Silverlode so unable to ski large area below mid-mtn.
Headed to Silverlode then across to Motherlode chairs on Granite Mtn,headed to the paradise area,found great conditions on Southern belle and Ruby tuesday.Mid morning break for coffee & strudel at Paradise Lodge.Headed for Grey Mtn chair,top of which is a short hike to KIrkup cat skiing pickup area.Some excellent blues check out the (trappers cabin)if you can find it.Some great tree skiing on double blacks despite the heavy snow.
Torrential overnight rain so shopping morning in Trail.Hit Red at 10.30am took 1 run heavy and wet snow,called it a day so the ladies could shop in Rossland.
Again heavy rain all night so decided to skip Red and head for Whitewater.
Red Mountain lifts are slow and antiquated and do not represent the lift ticket price.However get good snow and the terrain is there for Red to be up there with Revelstoke and others.Heres hoping that the 2017 snow will be good and we can test Reds pottential to the full.
Rossland was fine to stay at and has some good places to eat at(Idgies) and the family run Chinese on main street and some reasonable ski shops.
