Ski Report

Spring has sprung on many hills, mid-winter still elsewhere

Rain last weekend in many places has really brought us into spring skiing conditions at a number of hills. Expect crusty conditions in the morning and softer corn skiing by the afternoon, especially on lower slopes. Meanwhile, the upper slopes and higher elevation resorts are still in fantastic shape. Here's a picture I snapped of my friend Bill skiing the coastal-style powder at Lake Louise on Sunday. What a different a week makes - from -38 degrees to +3 degrees in just seven days. Full details for you on this week's ski report. Take a listen.


Fifty degree temperature swing sees chance of rain for weekend

The skiing this week has been really great as temperatures have warmed and a new snow storm has blown through. However, temperatures are going to spike so much by the weekend, we could even see rain on some hills. Keep an eye on the forecast to see how things are playing out closer to the weekend. But for now, take a listen to this week's full report for the latest.


Another chilly weekend forecast in the mountains

Pack your down if you're heading into the mountains this weekend. Lows are forecast down to -38 in the Bow Valley and it's going to be chilly everywhere - including the often warmer Fernie and Revelstoke. We have been seeing some inversions at resorts this week so hopefully that trend will continue for skiers this weekend. With no fresh snow for a while, skiers are having to get inventive. Take this photo I snapped of my buddy Alex at Revelstoke last weekend. There's always fresh somewhere! For full details on conditions, take a listen to this week's report.
