Snow Conditions in Canada (26 February 2015)
Great skiing can be found at present in Alberta, with cold temperatures and some light dustings of fresh snow providing some lovely piste conditions. All lifts were spinning at the three Banff (153cm) ski areas and Marmot Basin (119cm), with packed powder providing some great skiing on the groomers. Around 20cm of new snow is in the forecast for the upcoming week.
British Columbia is offering some decent skiing at present, particularly on the upper slopes and at resorts such as Kimberley (114cm) which caught some good new falls of snow over the weekend. Whistler (142cm) sadly continues to struggle, with the lower slopes really suffering at present. New snow is badly needed, but unlike for the rest of the state, no fresh snowfall is on the horizon.
Across on the east coast the skiing remains fantastic although lots of warm layers are needed as temperatures continue to dip well below -20C at night. Some new snow has been recorded at both Mont Sainte-Anne (90/150cm) and Tremblant (110/190cm) during the past week, resulting in some great fresh on piste conditions. Cloudy skies and some light snow are forecast for the next week.
