Snow overview for Canada
Thursday 05 March 2015

A few light dustings of new snow were picked up in western Canada during the week, nicely refreshing the pistes across the state. The biggest benefactor was Kimberley (136cm) which picked up 15cm of powder on Tuesday. Elsewhere the falls were of 5cm or less, but nonetheless the top up was most welcome. Some nice spells of sunshine were seen on Thursday 5th March, with more of the same expected over the weekend. There are some indications of heavier snow spreading into the state on Tuesday/Wednesday next week which is great news.

Cloudier skies in Alberta also brought some welcome fresh snow, with the Banff (152cm) resorts seeing 11cm of new snow in the past week and Marmot Basin (120cm) picking up 5cm. The colder air in place over the state has preserved the snow in excellent condition and as a result the piste conditions in particular are fantastic. Mostly cloudy weather is forecast for the next seven days, with light snowfall possible – possibly as much as 20cm by Tuesday.

Again Quebec continues to offer some fantastic skiing, with Mont Sainte-Anne (100/160cm) particularly standing out following 25cm of new snow since Wednesday. Cold temperatures and 9cm of new snow at Tremblant (110/190cm) have again helped to provide some great skiing here too. More snow is in the forecast, with 20cm possible by Tuesday.

These are places we stayed at and would highly recommend them.
The friendly family atmosphere is magnetic
We have now bee to Silverstar 3 times and will go back each year.
The back ( Dark ) side is awsome. The ski school is fabulous.
Would highly recommend getting the early bird season pass and the discount ski school group lessons with it. They turn out to be like private lessons (1-4 people ) 20 pounds for 2 hours. Almost everywhere is virtual ski in / out.
Night life a bit quiet. THEY NEED MORE BRITS out there.
The snow is excellent from early December, no man made stuff. There is night skiing. The tourch light ski down from the top into the village on xmas eve was great. The kids all came down with glow sticks while we came down the face , in a line carrying flares.
