Spring has not sprung in the Spur, and winter like ski conditions continue. Over 3 feet of snow has fallen this week – and 6″ of fresh just last night! Cool temperatures and more snow are in the forecast of the coming weeks.
We have 3 seats left in the final week of our season – April 7-14, 2018. This is a unique package – with a maximum of 10 guests having exclusive use of the lodge, helicopter and terrain. A “private” group experience for the special price of $8,255 CAD + tax. Call us for more details! 1.800.715.5532
We hope join us for April powder in the mountains and après ski on the deck in the sun!
March came in with a BANG! Another great week in the books to keep an epic season rolling.
A series of small convective cells delivered 50cm of new snow throughout the week, keeping things fresh and over the boot tops. Temperatures started out a bit cooler, but warmed up to a pleasant -5 degrees by the end of the week.
Conditions allowed us to explore the Morkill, Dore/Wendle and Mount Rider zones, meaning we were able to ski all the best of our terrain – from our naturally gladed tree runs to big open glacial tracks.
Thanks to our guests from Slovenia and across the USA for a great week!
As February has drawn to an end, and the snow continues to fall, we thought we would take a look back at the last month and all of the amazing days we have been blessed with out in the mountains!
Tours 7, 8, 9, and 10 were lucky enough to be part of one of the most epic February’s in recent history. Cold temperatures and a total snowfall of over 390cm (!!!) meant we skied blower, chest deep powder more often than not, and saw us revelling in many storm skiing days in McLeod Creek in the Zig Zag Zone.
You know it’s good when the poor guides start complaining that their cheeks are getting too cold from all of the darn snow flying in their faces!
We think our guests say it best, so here are a few comments from the past few weeks.
“Best ski trip ever!” – Jeff G. “Words do not explain how I feel!! Wonderful!” – Mike F. “Best skiing of my life, thank you so much. I’ll never, ever forget this special week.” – Ed K. “This is the best vacation of my life.. don’t tell my wife!” – Dan O.
What an amazing start to the 2018 Season! Fresh snow combined with cold temps mid-week made for excellent early season conditions. The group got the full tour of our terrain, conquering Mount Rider, The Morkill and McLeod Creek in the Zig Zag Zone.
We were fortunate to host some wonderful people who are working on some exciting projects with us. Early in the week we had Frank and Mike out from Citizen Pictures, who shot footage for a new Orientation and Safety video and Andy and Taylor were here from Heli to shoot content for some exciting partnerships in the near future!
Thank you to everyone who contributed to a great week out in the mountains!
There are still spaces available in this same week in 2019! Call us for details – 1-800-715-5532
Happy New Year! We have had a great start to the season with some excellent skiing! Guides got into the mountains on December 30 and have toured Quartz Creek, Macleod Creek, the Morkill and are cruising Mount Rider today. Coverage is good and the skiing has been excellent with boot top faceted powder. Our first group arrives on January 6 and there are cold temps and more snow in the forecast for the next week!
Our big glacier runs in the Cariboos were a great start to our second last week. Some challenging weather later in the week did not keep us from having fantastic days in the Rockies with boot top powder in the Morkill and Mount Rider areas. In all an amazing week of spring skiing!
Thanks to all of our wonderful guests including our Canadian friends and those who made the long journey from the Czech Republic, Slovenia Germany, The Netherlands, and Oregon.
What a week! Fantastic spring skiing conditions and a week long party celebrating the 50th and 60th birthdays of a number of our guests. We ended the week with local band Roadside Splinter who had the place rocking all night! We will let the pictures tell the story for this week. Thanks to all who joined us and made this such a memorable celebration!
