Snow overview for Canada
Thursday 12 January 2017

It was a blue bird powder day in Banff at Lake Louise and Sunshine Village – if you could find lines that hadn’t already been tracked that is. Only 2 lifts were open in Mont Sainte Anne (94/283cm) where groomers seemed to be struggling with the sheer amount of snow that has fallen recently. It was a beautiful day in Panorama where on slopes conditions were excellent. Temperatures were also a very mild (for Canada) -13!

Taking the prize for best ski region at the moment has to be Quebec. Mont Tremblant (80/90cm) just keeps receiving more and more snow. It was another powder day today.

Powder in Whistler for Christmas / New Year
Overall rating: 5 stars

The powder in Whistler Blackcomb was knee to waste deep in the back country on 29/12/16. The club organised a local guide who took us ski touring up Disease Ridge to allow us to then ski into Body Bag bowl. After some avalanche and transceiver training, we did two amazing runs through the powder with the back drop of crystal clear blue sky's.
