Wintery in the A.M. with minor softening in the afternoon. It is surprising how great the coverage and conditions are. There was some hard packed areas here and there but no ice to speak of. The ski out is holding up well, although with slow snow.
fantastic day! 9 cm fresh doesn't last long, but still lovely and fluffy on the backside. Front side was very soft by the end of the day, so it will stay pretty crispy unless it warms up. Coverage is really good, not many scratches on the board.
Winter was back today at Sunshine. Conditions were pretty decent considering it is spring. Great coverage across all 3 mountains with windblown hard pack in exposed areas, and packed powder below the treeline. The snow in the trees was still pretty crusty and difficult to ski. Snow is in the forcast!
Full on spring up there today! Sun exposed areas lower down were very slushy/slow. Higher up expect wind blown snow. Tree skiing is pretty sticky right now also! Even with the warm weather snow cover remains amazing!
Great day on the hill today!
Aside from the fact that it was toonie day - the crowd was manageable , beautiful warm weather with a little bit of snow in the afternoon. was probably the best day on the hill thus season yet for me (been 6 times to Norquay), the powder mixed with the groomers was a perfect balance for all around skiing. was a superb day to just cruise and carve hard, not too many icy patches , and lots of nice fresh powder. 24cm within the last 48 hrs.
Season's almost over! Enjoy!
Awesome Conditions! We skied Lake Louise yesterday and it was starting to get skied off (but still strong). Give the opportunity to do yesterday over again I would've been here at Sunshine... But the conditions are world class at both.
