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.

Fantastic week despite less snow than normal for Whistler!
Overall rating: 5 stars

Visited: February 2015

Had a great week in Whistler mostly skiing on piste in blue skies and warm sunshine! Ryan, the leader was hugely knowledgable about the Whistler ski area and managed to find suitable slopes snd the best snow despite a relatively slow snow year. Temperatures were warm so pistes were often icy in the morning and slushy on the lower slopes especially late afternoon, but some good off piste was found, especially on the Blackcomg Glacier. The social hour was good fun and Ryan brought the group together very well - we sampled a few of Whister's restaurants as well which were excellent and good value especially with today's exchange rate. Whistler's shops are also very good and the the standard of hotel accommodation was very high. Overall, a fantastic week!
