Good conditions have been reported from across British Columbia, although snowfall totals have been perhaps lower than average this season, especially at Whistler. Some powder stashes can still be found in the trees, but on the whole Tuesday was a day for piste skiing – especially as most resorts were running a full roster of lifts to access the vast majority of terrain. A few light snow showers are possible this week, before a more meaningful storm sweeps in on Friday night.
The same can be said for further inland at the likes of Lake Louise and Marmot Basin, with slightly colder temperatures here than further west thanks to the extra Rocky Mountain altitude and cold interior air. The pistes remain is great condition and now the half term crowds have departed, the runs are nice and quiet. Some light snow is also possible here throughout the week, but totals are not set to amount to much.
Across in Quebec, a lot of snow is forecast to fall between Wednesday and Friday, bringing as much as 30-40cm of new powder to the likes of Tremblant and Mont-Sainte-Anne. The snow is set to fall in bitterly cold temperatures, so should be very light and fluffy, providing great powder conditions.
