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.

Visited: February 2016

4 nights Sandman Inn & Suites (Kamloops)stayed previously in 2010/11.Room large enough for 3 adults,2 double beds,coffee making and fridge.Cheerful staff.Dennys diner on site.Laundry facility in adjacent building 2 dollars wash and dry important on a roadtrip.Quick shop at Overwaiti supermarket for breakfast requirements(cheap option but works well ask at Dennys for cutlery.
Approx 45km drive around 45mins to Sun Peaks and Mt Tod.Watch for bighorn sheep and mule eared deer on route.Car park covered in 100mm solid ice(no issue)but watch the mountain road it can get very slick.
Lift tickets via Liftopia,straight forward exchange to resort ticket 19% saving.
Good weather,reasonable snow conditions overall.Our first time companions were amazed by the snow ghosts.Uncrowded in all areas across the mountain.Our 2nd week skiing couple came on leaps and bounds and loved the resort.Our 5wk boarder built her confidence well and boarded her first black diamond on spillway,very apt as i did catch a few of her spills on video.Our other couple and their daughters thoroughly enjoyed the resort and in particular the long blues on Morrisey.
Having 4x4s and staying in Kamloops is an advantage in many ways.It opens up a vast amount of eating opportunitys & shopping.It also reduces the costs greatly.
If you visit and need a new jacket or other gear,checkout the Sportcheck shop in Aberdeen mall,Kamloops.Memory says 6 out of our 9 had new jackets at superb prices.
To sum Sun Peaks up its a great all round resort for all abilities,beginner to expert.All 9 of us had an excellent 4days skiing here all for different reasons.
Having skied for 44yrs its in my top 5.
Accomodation rating is based on Kamloops.
Next stop Revelstoke.
