Snow overview for Canada
Thursday 11 February 2016

Sticking to the upper slopes was the best option in British Columbia following some sleety weather lower down on Wednesday. Some fresh snow was recorded higher up at the likes of Kicking Horse (167cm) and Revelstoke (218cm) so as a result some good skiing was on offer, but elsewhere it was a partly cloudy and dry day. Unfortunately before the real snow arrives next week a further spell of sleety weather is forecast for Saturday, especially at Whistler (230cm) where rain is expected to fall below around 1,800m.

Some good skiing was on offer in Alberta at the resorts of Lake Louise (100/127cm) and Sunshine Village (145cm) in particular. The sun was out and the lower slopes were softening nicely into spring-like snow by the afternoon. This looks set to change as colder and snowier weather moves in for the new week, potentially bringing as much as 50cm of new snow to all levels by Thursday 18th February.

Conditions continue to improve on the east coast at our two featured resorts of Tremblant (60/60cm) and Mont Sainte-Anne (30/60cm). Thursday was bitterly cold and a little light snow was falling, and the forecast calls for more of the same with temperatures forecast to dip to as low as -30C on Saturday night. Further spells of snow are forecast for next week which is great news.

Sun Peaks review

Big thanks to all we met whilst having a great 10 days in Sun Peaks. Skiing was excellent, with great confidence building runs on all 3 mountains. Stayed at the Cahility lodge, which was very convenient for the slopes, walk out of the ski room and onto the slopes. The chilli at the Sunburst lodge is great along with the hot cake, though might weld your teeth together.
