Snow Overview - Canada (snow news updated 21-Dec-2014)
Light snow was falling across Canada on Thursday 18th December.
The most was falling on the east coast, with Tremblant (65/95cm) and Mont Sainte-Anne (15/122cm) seeing up to 10cm by the end of Wednesday night. Piste conditions will undoubtedly be improved by the new snowfall.
Light snow was also dropping on Whistler (90cm) and Silver Star (57/84cm), freshening up the pistes ahead of the weekend. Good news is in the forecast as more snow is expected, with Whistler potentially seeing 50cm by next week.
North American Weather Outlook
Fresh snow is forecast at almost all of our featured North American resorts over the weekend and in the run up to Christmas Day.
In America over half a metre of snow is forecast at mid-mountain level at Jackson Hole, Keystone, Canyons, Breckenridge, Park City, Solitude, Snowbird, Alta, Copper Mountain and Crested Butte. Crested Butte is predicted the greatest amount of snow with 58cm forecast at mid-mountain level by Friday 26th December.
Whistler should receive the most fresh snow in Canada over the next week, with 50cm predicted at mid-mountain level by Friday 26th. Kicking Horse is another good choice if you want fresh snow, with over 20cm expected over the same period.
