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.

I stayed at the Coast Suites, Blackcomb, 24 Dec - 1 Jan. Fabulous rangey accommodation (rooms even have their own fire-place) with ski-hire on site and ski-in ski-out to the slopes of Blackcomb and Whistler. Tremendous snow this year over Christmas. Brought more people than usual, I think, but they seemed to dissipate over the many "bowls" and it was easy to find unpopulated areas on- and off-piste within the "patrolled" zone. The lifts were adequate and the peak-to-peak cable car/gondola amazing. Even though still an "aspirant" off-piste, the readily available heli-skiing accommodated "the tentative" and delivered a joyful, sunny day in the "back-country".
Whistler is an extended pretty village with something for everyone - recent Olympic themes from the 2010 winter games add to this.
The Ski Club service via Suzannah Vaill (Ski Leader) during my stay provided an excellent route to finding my way around the slopes, to meeting all sorts of people and to the après-ski scene in Whistler. This was an integral and important part of a fantastic holiday for me. Indeed, I chose Whistler rather than other North American resorts for the holiday, in part, for the very fact that the Ski Club stations a Ski Leader there. I have to thank Suzannah and the Ski Club for delivering so superbly well on the promise! I sincerely hope the Ski Club continues to cultivate Whistler.
