Snow Conditions in Canada (30 March 2015)
We are currently seeing differing conditions in Canada, with the west and British Columbia reporting typical spring like conditions with heavier slopes higher up and slushy conditions down towards the resorts. Both regions saw light snowfalls over the weekend but the east still remains colder and cloudier.
In the east, Tremblant (110/190cm) reported frequent flurries of snow over the weekend, with around 2cm falling each day. Great skiing is there to be enjoyed at the moment; on Monday 30th March eight lifts were running as some were closed due to high winds. Fresh pistes are on offer though with varying conditions off the slopes.
In the west Banff/Lake Louise/Sunshine Village (160/160cm) returned to spring conditions after a small amount of snow fell over the weekend. Reports indicated that around 5cm fell but a rise in climate has made the slopes a little heavy and slushy. The visibility was reasonable as the sun was breaking through the weekends cloud cover.
