Snow Report: January 18, 2017

Yesterdays snow: 20 cm Past 24 hr. snow: 20 cm This week snow: 22 cm Total Snowfall to date: 800 cm Average temperature: -6 C BIG SNOW!  It looks like the powder switch is stuck at 110%, and we’re not in any hurry to turn it off.  Hey, it’s nothing new up here, but we’re getting hammered by loads of fresh powder, with Tuesday’s storm bringing in snowfall of 20cm, and lots more still falling.  Our tracks are being erased by the day, and it’s not supposed to stop for the length of the foreseeable forecast.  To top it all off, temperatures are staying cool, keeping all that new snow in prime shape for skiing.  Pack your powder suit and your snorkel, because you’re going to need them!  Yeah, it’s a great time to be a Great Northern skier, but isn’t it always?!  Thirty seven years of powder hounds can’t be wrong --- when it’s time for DEEP, we’ve got you covered…

Snow Report : January 2, 2017

Snowpack:  270cm 48 hr. snow:  10cm 7 day snow: 110cm Total snowfall to date:  725cm Average temps:   -15c Santa Claus visited Great Northern and delivered over a meter of fresh snow between Christmas and New Year’s.  It was piling up as fast as we could measure it, just in time for our first guest’s arrival!! Blue skies and sunshine have been the order of business over the past couple of days, with nice cold temperatures keeping the snow dry and well-preserved. That pretty much sums it up around here --- deep lines and good friends to ski them with.  And if that’s not what life’s all about, it’s close enough for us…

Snow Report:December 20 2016

Snowpack:  187cm 48 hr. snow:  60cm Total snowfall to date:  398cm Average temps:   -11c Snow Density is around 95% air... textbook blower powder SWEEEEET!  That's about the only way to describe the situation up here.  The numbers don't lie --- winter is happening big time!  We're in full swing building cat roads, and just barely shoveling fast enough to keep the lodge from disappearing under all the big fat flakes that keep on falling.  Yesterday's trip up the mountain revealed a two meter snowpack  (yup, that's a lot!) and it's just begging to be skied!  Yeah, pack your snorkels, 'cause it's looking DEEP and DRY and getting deeper, with the forecast saying nothing but snow, snow, and more snow all week long.  What else can I say?  Our arms may get tired from the shoveling, but our legs are strong and ready for some amazing powder skiing--- and who could ask for a better Christmas present than that...

One month before our skiing begins at Great Northern and the staff is busy preparing for what looks to be another exciting winter. We have been watching the snow fall steadily on top of GREAT NORTHERN MOUNTAIN and are anxiously waiting to get up there to make the first turns of the season.

Please keep revisiting our website for an up-to-date SNOW REPORT that we will post in mid-December

Snow Report : January 14 2015

Snowpack: 240 cm

This week's snow: 30 cm

Average Temperature -5C

El Niño? What El Niño. With pre season fears approaching fever pitch in the minds and hearts - and for many, memory - we have yet to experience the forecast dreaded effects of a so called warm drought. As each day dawns and we make our way into Great Northerns terrain we marval at the bountiful gifts the snow gods are laying at our feet. If this is El Niño then I say... you better come get some!
