As Calgary gets hit by the latest blizzard to roll through town, there is some tremendous skiing in the rockies today.  But let’s start with the official weather report from Environment Canada:

Screen Shot 2013-12-02 at 12.18.15 PMI can confirm that there is significant accumulation in Calgary as of noon today.  However, the webcams are showing only light snow and Sunshine and very little precip at Lake Louise or Kicking Horse.  Fernie on the other hand is giving me heart palpitations.  First the snow cam….  That’s about 35cms folks.  So far…

Castle Mountain is also enjoying fresh snow from this storm system but they’re not open yet.  Only the backcountry skiers will be enjoying the turns today.

I had to check one last resort, Revelstoke and they are getting the sweet pow today.  I love it when Gnorm gets completely buried.  It looks like the snow at Revy has stopped for now but the amount of snow still gives me hope that Kicking Horse, Louise and Sunshine may get some of this snow later today.  I’m guessing the system is pounding Roger’s Pass as we speak.  SO… the post header is a shot from Revy’s opening weekend (photo credit Ian Houghton).  Now imagine another 25cms on top of that!!
