Snow Overview - Canada (snow news updated 23-Apr-2014)
Mt Norquay in the Banff area (140/230cm) is now closed for the season although you can still ski at Lake Louise and Sunshine Village, and the skiing conditions are currently very good.
Whistler (243cm) is also open and the skiing is also very good with recent snowfall freshening conditions.
Marmot Basin (134cm) is the last of our featured western resorts in Canada still open for snowsports and although spring skiing dominates the snow is still deep enough to provide excellent slope conditions.
In the east, Mont Sainte-Anne is closed during the week but will be open on 26th and 27th April for the last weekend of their season.
North American Weather Outlook
A mixed week is expected in America, with high temperatures generally but also a few days where it will suddenly turn much colder and deliver some fresh snow. Breckenridge could get some rain on Friday 25th April but then fresh snow for the closing weekend, with the freezing level dropping to almost 1,000m below the village.
Light snow is expected on and off all week at Whistler in Canada. The freezing level will hover around 1,400m all week, which is just below mid mountain. This should deliver around 30cm of fresh snow to the upper area over the course of the week and the coming weekend.
