Snow Reporter Comments

Your eyes do not deceive you - it is NOT crazy cold at Castle like it is on the prairies and those temperatures you're seeing are indeed correct! Good morning this is Cole checking in with your Saturday snow report for January 18.

The temperature inversion that has been in place all week finally flipped yesterday with temperatures evening out at summit and base. That same trend seems as though it's poised to continue again today with a mid-mountain high of -8 expected and a very reasonable -14 as of 5 AM. While there was no appreciable snowfall last night, snow has been falling continuously over the past two weeks and has left us with a base of over 2 meters - something we haven't seen this early in the season for a very long time. Coverage is amazing out there and we're skiing / riding places we sometimes can't until late Feb.

Expect a mix of sun and cloud today with the wind becoming west 20 km/h gusting to 40 this afternoon - a non-issue for lift operations. All major lifts are scheduled to operate today with base area lifts scheduled for 9 AM and Tamarack (Red) Chair scheduled for operation at 9:30 AM. Delays are not expected today but are always possible should avalanche control work be deemed necessary.

This weekend there is no shortage of things going on at Castle Mountain Resort. Avalanche Awareness Days and World Snow Day Weekend are both on tap with a whole host of family friendly events, including FREE Green Chair / Learning Area tickets all weekend long (Sat + Sun). As well, a hearty welcome to U14 racers from across the province and beyond as they compete in SL and GS races on Lone Ranger. Lone Ranger will be closed today and tomorrow for these races.
