Where to begin??? It just keeps snowing in the mountains and I have to say, ‘we deserve it!’ Let’s start with my top 10 for 24hr snowfall and 48hr snowfall:
The weekly numbers are pretty mind blowing. Mt Baker 198cms (What?), Whistler 127cms (no more bad snow season), Revelstoke 117cms (Calgary powder chasers are on site), Mt Seymour 117cms (great skiing minutes from North Van), Mt Washington 106cms (that will surely keep them open for the rest of the season), Cypress 100cms (more great skiing in North Van), Panorama 96cms (I should’ve gone to Mike’s place in Invermere this weekend), Fernie 91cms (snow valley returns – Craig Morris will be happy).
If your resort isn’t showing up in the top 10, don’t worry, it’s snowing everywhere! I was at Louise yesterday and it was spectacular as these pics confirm:
Whitewater is one of my favourite resorts, I wish I lived a lot closers to the Koots. I’m sure the skiing was amazing this week and as this pic shows, there is plenty of untouched powder to explore.
Is there anything better than ripping fresh lines in Fernie’s alpine bowls? I’ll answer my own question, ‘No!!!’ This shot from yesterday brings back some good memories for me. I really need to get down to Fernie soon! I noticed Craig Morris hasn’t updated his blog this week. Yes, it’s that good!
Here’s a killer shot from Revelstoke on Thursday. I have some colleagues who are down their this weekend so hopefully I can poach some more shots from them tomorrow.
Logan Swayze generally posts some epic shots on the Whistler website but I haven’t seen anything since Feb 12th – conditions must be too good to stop for pictures. Anyway, I’m sure it still looks something like this 🙂
