Snow overview for Canada
Friday 01 May 2015

Some great spring skiing is on offer on Mt. Hood at Timberline (155cm), with warm sunshine dominating the weather pattern. The best conditions are on the Palmer snowfield at the top of the mountain and three lifts were turning on Friday 1st May.

Despite receiving less than 60% of average snowfall this winter, good skiing is available on the upper slopes of Whistler Mountain (173cm). The forecast is calling for great sunny weather over the weekend, with mild temperatures at all levels. Whistler Mountain is set to remain open until May 18th for spring skiing and then Blackcomb is set to open on June 20th for the summer ski season on the Horstman glacier.

Wonderful Whistler!
Overall rating: 5 stars

Visited: April 2015

Having heard that Whistler was having the worst season in 25 years I was anxious about what I would find when I arrived on 7 April. However, I was pleasantly surprised! Despite not being able to ski back to the village due to a lack of snow on the village slopes there was plenty of snow from the mid station and alpine areas. It snowed 40 + cm while we were there and we skied on deep fluffy powder on the groomed pistes. It was wonderful! Whistler is a fabulous resort for several reasons: the pistes are wide, the skiing area vast, the scenery spectacular, the Canadian people are very warm, friendly and helpful, the lift staff are charming, the 'sniffle stations' brilliant, the restaurants, bars and hotels superb etc! I highly recommend a ski trip to Whistler.......even the drive from the airport is amazing, passing by Howe Sound and the beautiful coastline. I will be back!
