"The snow keeps on falling and the powder keeps getting deeper at Whistler Blackcomb. Our snowfall total this year is an impressive 877 cm (28.8 feet). At this point (877 cm) we're more than 100 cm above our annual average snowfall for the start of March! (In a typical winter Whistler Blackcomb receives an average total snowfall of 1,042cm)," said Peter Lonergan, Communications Coordinator for the resort.

In Alberta with over a metre of new snow blanketing Banff National Park, all three of the park's world-class ski resorts are experiencing truly exceptional conditions.

Mount Norquay, Sunshine Village and Lake Louise ski resorts are all heralding the massive snowfall as the perfect start to a great spring ski season in Canada's flagship national park.

"This is definitely one of the top ten March snowfalls on record," said Mike Moynihan of The Lake Louise Ski Area, "We've seen a metre of snowfall this week and with the storm cycle finally clearing and giving way to clear blue skies, skiers and boarders are simply lapping it up."

It's still snowing in the East of the country too with Mont Sainte Anne and Mont Sutton in Quebec among Canadian resorts reporting 30-40cm of new snow in the past seven days.
