Snow overview for Canada
Monday 26 January 2015

The pick of the conditions in Canada are on the east coast, where bitterly cold temperatures combined with some light top ups are leading to some excellent pistes. Wrap up warm however as at Tremblant (100/180cm) the thermometer was reading -31C at 7am on Monday morning, with expected highs of around -13C. Some more light snow is expected this week and temperatures are set to remain well below freezing, so the fantastic snow conditions will be preserved.

Over on the west coast much warmer air is in place, resulting in a softening of the lower slopes in particular. New snow was picked up over the weekend however and the overall coverage remains very good. Fernie (134cm) was offering skiing from all 10 of its lifts on Monday 26th January, but with temperatures expected to hit +10C in the afternoon on the lower slopes, some heavy conditions are possible. A slight cooling is expected this week, before clouds move in by the weekend, potentially bringing some light snowfall.

Slightly colder air was still in place in Alberta, preserving some excellent snow conditions at the Banff (128cm) resorts. 36cm of snow has been recorded in the past week at Sunshine Village, so with the cold temperatures some good powder stashes can still be found. Some flurries are possible through the week, but otherwise expect some good periods of sunshine.

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.
