It’s never too late to play catch up.  While Fernie hogged most of the heavy snowfall in December, Sunshine and Louise were relatively dry.  But it has been snowing insanely in the mountain parks since the weekend and if you’ve read the Ryder report you’ll know that conditions are as good as it gets right now – with more snow on the way!!

Now That’s Powder! – Back Bowls at Lake Louise

Screen Shot 2014-01-13 at 10.20.51 PMBut before you start accusing me of being Calgary focused… let’s look at the numbers from the rest of Western Canada (yeah yeah, now I’m too Canada focused :0)

Mount Washington – 100cms in 48hrs (ridiculous!!!)

Big White – 60cms in 48hrs (hell ya!!!)

Powder King – 38cms in 24hrs (do they really need any more snow?)

Kicking Horse – 44cms in 48hrs (outstanding!)

Whitewater – 38cms in 48hrs (brilliant!)

Fernie – 25cms in 48hrs (normally I’d be pretty excited about that)

OK but let’s get back to Sunshine and Louise.  Sunshine had 24cms of new snow today and 50cms in the last 2 days. Look no further than the Ryder report to see just how epic it has been.  Lake Louise was reporting 31cms of new snow today and 58cms in the last 48hrs.  I absolutely love Lake Louise when it has that much snow.  I can’t believe I’m missing out on it.  I’ll be combing the web for more pics and videos from Louise this week and I’ll be sure to share them with you.  But even better, get out there and experience it for yourselves – and send me some pics!
