Snow Conditions in Canada (26 November 2015)
The sun was shining and the skies were clear across much of Canada on Thursday 26th November. Conditions in many resorts remain excellent thanks to the large amount of early season snowfall across the west coast.
Alberta is still the place to be if you are looking for some pre-Christmas powder turns, with Banff enjoying a fantastic start to the season. Lake Louise (104cm) welcomes the Men’s World Cup this coming weekend so be sure to stop by to watch the action if you fortunate enough to be enjoying some early season skiing in the area. The weather is set to be sunny over the weekend, with temperatures to remain above freezing during the day.
It is much the same across British Columbia. The sunshine and higher temperatures that are in store for the weekend will offer the perfect conditions to get out and enjoy the fantastic early season snowfall. Kicking Horse (30/60cm) is looking to get lifts turning for the first time this season, with nearly all of the mid-lower mountain terrain open to riders this coming weekend. This is the first time they will be opening early in their history – a testament to just what a good start to the season it has been.
On the east coast, Tremblant (10cm) is set to get the first lifts of the season turning on Thursday, with Mont Sainte Anne (10cm) not far behind with a projected opening of this weekend. The surface on offer will be largely artificial having not had any significant snowfall in the last few weeks. However, some light flurries are expected over the weekend which will do much to increase the coverage and base depths in the area. Temperatures will remain low which will see both resorts able to continue their round the clock snow making ability.
