Snow Overview - Canada (snow news updated 02-Mar-2015)
Light top ups of fresh snow over the weekend have improved the conditions across British Columbia, although Whistler (147cm) continues to suffer from a lack of snow. Red Mountain (151cm) caught a nice 3cm of new snow on Sunday and Revelstoke (198cm) fared even better after seeing 8cm of powder. This has improved the piste conditions following the recent mild spell of weather. Sunny skies dominate the forecast, with temperatures expected to rise gradually to above freezing at mid-mountain level.
Colder temperatures have ensured the snow has remained in excellent condition in Alberta, despite only light dustings of snow hitting the Banff (150cm) resorts and Marmot Basin (118cm). Some great grooming has led to some great soft piste conditions across the mountain. A sunny spell of weather is expected this week and temperatures are set to remain low.
Tremblant (110/190cm) and Mont Sainte-Anne (90/150cm) in Quebec and Blue Mountain (150cm) in Ontario continue to offer fantastic skiing. Cold air and some nice top ups of snow in recent weeks have resulted in some amazing on piste conditions. It is set to continue over the coming week, with 20cm of new snow possible.
North American Weather Outlook
Monday’s light snow across western Canada is expected to peter out overnight, leaving a gloriously sunny week of weather. Temperatures are set to gradually rise from around -10C at mid-mountain level to around 0C by Thursday and around +4C by next Monday.
The snow currently falling across Colorado and Utah is forecast to continue until Tuesday, although some parts of Colorado may cling on to some snow showers until Thursday. Once the snow stops, sunshine and gradually increasing temperatures are expected so some great skiing is likely to be had across this region in the coming week.
Recent snowfall in California is also set to stop, but this time by Tuesday, to be replaced by sunny skies. Temperatures are set to rise significantly, with daytime highs of around 8C possible by the end of the week.
The story again could not be more different over on the east coast, with yet more bitterly cold and snowy weather is forecast for the coming week. Another 10-15cm of new snow can be expected in the US states, with up 20cm possible across the border in Canada. Sunshine unfortunately will be at a premium, but thanks to the new snow and the cold temperatures, the snow conditions are set to more than make up for this!
