It's not too bad at summit, and even powder in some lower traffic areas. But by the end of the day the base is a lake. Just how it is at season end. The snow is wet, and you won't be getting full speed, but it's still worth going.

Great powder up there, but getting slushy in the afternoon at the bottom.

Still good skiing to be found. Morrissey, Crystal and Tod’s east side (OSV, Cariboo, Sting, etc) are your best bets for snow consistency. If you like moguls, check out Czech.

Sharpen your edges. Runs are hard packed and fast. Crystal Bowl, Cariboo and Midlife were great.

Haven’t had new snow in a week, but the grooming has been fantastic and the temps cold enough to keep it firm.

Nice packed powder on Norquay chair. Those runs have not gotten any easier, huge moguls but beautiful runs and conditions. The other chairs were good, more groomed but soft as above zero. I have not been to Norquay in years, great hill, I will be back.

Snowing heavily. Shot taken from Static Cling which was icy at the top, then good as the moguls were mowed down earlier in the week.

This most-appropriately-named run was wickedly awesome today. The beginning of the run lulls (bluffs) you into thinking you’re on a powdery and cottony blue run. Then, WHAM! - you come to the cliff and every skier and boarder stops and stares. In the past, the bluff was had more sheer, icy drop-off, but today, Bluff was delightful.

Impressively quiet today, you would never guess it was the Saturday of a long weekend. No lift lines and freshly groomed corduroy lasted until late afternoon. Chilly so bundle up!

Definitely a record day. Line ups were short, snow fell pretty much all day, and that was on top of the 25cm that fell over last couple of days. We even saw a sliver of sun. I know. I didn’t believe it either.

Had a great day yesterday (Jan 28). It was snowing all day, which provided a light powdery cover on almost every run we went to. We did just run greens and blues but several different runs. The ski out was good too. Mid-week really proves itself for parking and lineups! Pic is from upper Canyon on the way out.

Windy conditions resulted in strewn tree debris on some runs. Not too much of a problem, but ski with care. Hard packed snow. Colder than last week with gusty winds.

Skied Saturday and snow on the back side was stellar. Most other runs didn’t have anything fresh to grip onto but at least it wasn’t icy, we had some really quick runs. The lines were insane, skip skiing Saturday if you can ski other days.

Variety of snow conditions but mainly hard packed with machine grooming. The gladed runs offer the most powder opportunities.

Three Bears was named after 3 bears walked out of the woods while the run was cut. These cuties can be found scattered throughout the run and occasionally get replaced after the birds discover their stuffing makes great nesting material. Happy Bear Hunting.

Had a great day skiing powder at Nakiska on 23rd December - about 60cm of powder fell on the 22nd. Unfortunately this app shows no snow at all for that week. The app isn't much use if it misses key data like that.

Great day, conditions were good across most runs, 20cm over night and snowed all day. 45 minute line up for Gondola in the AM and limited indoor options to eat but the hill is open and running well despite Covid.

One of my best days at Louise in a while. Lots of fresh snow up the top, warm day with bluebird skies. Reasonably busy for mid week so fairly tracked out and a few runs all moguls. Man made snow building on lower runs front side. *App is not correctly showing the snow report.

Dec. 4: More dirt patches at the bottom of runs but there still good skiing in places. Cariboo was perfect top to bottom. Morrissey’s blues are the best. Take care if you take an Orient run to get to Morrissey - Orient has the least snow cover on the resort.
