Snow Reporter Comments

Conditions in the Alpine are very good. On the lower third of the mountain conditions are still marginal but the gaps are being covered by man made snow.

Let me stress this: STAY AWAY. You can only use the top and loop the runs off Stairway To Heaven lift. The front runs are NOT skiable. Also, the road that takes you to the Catmount Chair, is very icy. So it is a lousy ski out to a lift that is required to take you to the bottom. Kicking Horse needs a lot more snow. Probably out of action until perhaps February.

    All in all, a great, fun, challenging hill for those who like it steep.
