Blue skies and sunshine have been the order of business over the past week. We’ve had bomber great dry powder the last few days!!A weak system forecast for the week carries a chance of new snow, with more sunny days expected for early next week. Views from here to forever, snow under your skis, and the sun or your face ─ it’s all looking good from here…

This just in: skiing is good. Really, really, ridiculously good, in fact, when you pile 960cm of sweet Selkirk powder on the legendary tree lines and pillows that fill our back yard! Overhead face shots put the icing on the cake, and when you toss it all together… nothing short of powder perfection! Let the good times roll…

Another epic ski week is upon us, and the storms just keep rolling on in like a runaway freight train. Yeah, the Powder Express is here!
It’s piling up as fast as we can measure it, and our tracks are disappearing as quickly as we can lay them down. It’s real nice, and only getting nicer, and though we haven’t seen the sun in days, it’s all good ─ up here, face shots beat sun tans any day of the week! Snorkels are at the ready, and we’re going diving, right into a sea of deep powder goodness. And as for the sun, it can stay on the beach, all the way until May ─after all, we won’t see it through all that snow anyway…

Snow Report : January 25, 2017

72 hr. snowfall:  1 cm This week’s snow:  4 cm Total snowfall:  808 cm Average temps:  around -5c As with so much in life, a little reading between the lines is needed to get the real picture behind this week’s snowfall numbers.  Sure, it hasn’t snowed much in the past five days, but nice cool temperatures equal great snow preservation, our very well-settled snowpack is nice and stable, and the 808cm that have fallen so far this winter all add up to another week of sweet powder skiing.  Lots of space to roam means we’re still laying down untouched lines, who can argue with sunny days under bright blue skies!  The weatherman tells us fresh flakes are predicted for the first part of February, and then snow, snow, and more snow for as far as the forecast goes.  Sun is great, but snow’s even better, so that’s just music to our ears…
