"More Powder Crazed than a kid in a Krispy Kreme store. The Griz has delivered- over 3 feet in 48hrs of Dry, Light Pow to Fernie Alpine Resort, heart of the Powder Highway!" said an excited ‘Powder Matt' Mosteller, the Vice President of Marketing and Sales for resort owners the Resorts of the Canadian Rockies.
A little further west Revelstoke Mountain Resort received 82cm of snow this past week with the peak of the storm hitting just in time for Saturday skiers and delivering a whopping 34cm (14 inches) in just 24h hours.
"Incredible powder conditions were enjoyed all weekend long as the storm finally tailed-off on Sunday, opening the skies to some beautiful sunshine for the past two days. More snow is in the forecast for this week with the heaviest portion predicted just in time for our weekend visitors again!" said Sarah Windsor from the resort.
For a change though there has been almost as much snow in Eastern Canada as in the west. Mont Sutton has had the most in Quebec in the past 7 days with 82cm (nearly three feet). Big falls have been reported too by Le Massif (70cm) and most other resorts in the region have had at least a foot (30cm) over the same period. Tremblant reports 39cm (16 inches) and Mont Sainte Anne 27cm (15 inches)
