Snow overview for Canada
Monday 22 December 2014

It was a very snowy weekend across British Columbia, with lots of resorts picking up excellent pre-Christmas snowfalls.

Whistler (133cm) had all but one lift open on Monday 22nd December following 42cm of new snow over the weekend. Lots of fresh snow was also reported at Silver Star (79/130cm) and big White (70/143cm), both of which saw 40cm plus in the past 48 hours. Some excellent powder skiing was reported on Monday as a result.

Alberta missed out slightly on the new snowfall, but both Banff (85/90cm) and Marmot Basin (85cm) were reporting a dusting of new snow, improving the already excellent piste conditions. Both ski areas were operating their full complement of lifts on Monday.

Good skiing was also had in Quebec, with Tremblant (65/95cm) the pick of the resorts, with 11 out of 14 lifts open.

New snow is predicted for British Columbia and Alberta on Christmas Eve, with up to 20cm expected. Temperatures will remain cold so the skiing conditions in the lead up to and following Christmas should remain very good. On the east coast, warm weather and some rain is forecast for Christmas Eve, but a return to colder weather is forecast for Christmas Day.

We had a great time , with 10 days on the slopes. The best thing is the open mountain rule, where you can virtually ski anywhere within the 'in bound' marked area, which allows anyone to try a bit of off piste skiing without breaking the rules! It snowed (with a bit of rain) for the first 7 days of our stay, which I am informed is not unusual, so don't go expecting blue skies and powder like they show on the videos that are constantly running in the bars and restaurants. The mountains are smaller than I expected, and we had skied it all in 4 days. It may be big in north American terms, but smaller than many places we have skied in Europe. You have to start early as the lifts close at 3 and 4pm, even after the clocks went forward, which was very frustrating. The food on offer is a bit samey, burgers and pulled pork with chips, but it was always well presented and a plate full!

It is the first time we have stayed in a condo rather than a hotel. We prefer a hotel with a lounge, bar and the other facilities, which you don't get in a condo, but I can see the advantage of a condo for a family with young children. The Tantalus Lodge is not in the pedestrianized area. It is too far away from the lifts to walk in ski boots, but there is a mini bus to take you to the slopes, which is essential.
