Lots of powder, sweet spring skiing day!

Excellent conditions all over the mountain. Powdery up top and still some fresh lines off Knob chair, lots of fresh if you're up for a hike. Springish corn snow on lower mountain but not grabby. Excellent mid winter snow in mid April.

This was the first time at Canada, and these were the best conditions I’ve ever been to. Packed powder/powder and lots of new snow!

skied 3/28 & 3/29, during and after a nice refresher snow dump of close to 10". The top of the mountain was amazing, the back bowls were bliss. the lower part of the front side was getting a little mushy because of the warmth down low and ptarmigan was a sticky mess during the sunshine of Thursday. The snow base is still quite deep, and new snow was coming 3/30. My guess is that within 3-4 days after fresh stuff it'll be sprung conditions mountain wide, but given this is late March this was a heck of a great 2 days we got there.

Lots of powder in the morning, but visibility was very poor. There is still a lot of powder between the trees and back country area. Some runs up the Angel chair and Goat's Eye are starting to get tracked out.

Not bad today. Lots of good snow still to be found off of North American/Norquay Chair and Mystic. The steep groomers were a bit slippery but not terrible. Views were unbeatable on a blue bird day.

Lots of trails open but thin cover in a lot of places, you have to keep your eyes open for good snow. Get to the back slopes. Some places are great and some blacks have a lot uncovered

Overall, beautiful packed powder throughout, but a bit thin at places. About an inch of dusty powder fell friday morning. Goat's Eye at the top was too bare to ski except where groomed. No crowds. No ice at all.

Been here 3 times this season and great conditions for the early season, price could be cheaper with a lot of trails still closed though, but still a beautiful day!

Pretty good out there, best in the back bowls. Ice patches around, but solid for the time year. Snowed lightly in the afternoon.

Nice to have so much terrain available to access but coverage is sketchy in some spots. The back bowls are nice and Paradise is definitely skiable. Much better than the regular wiwaxi 500 opening.

Was definitely better than normal for this time of year. More coverage and more runs open. Some nice stashes of untouched snow still abound. Recommended.
