March 19-24 – 50/60 Madness

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!

March 5-10 Conditions… EPIC!

This week was truly epic with cold temperatures, tons of fresh dry powder, and a extensive tour of our tenure. We skied the classics runs  Notre Dame, Waimea, Cathedral, Plasticos and Belt Grinder in the Dore Wendle area of the Cariboos, and headed to the trees on Friday to ski Highlander, Immortality and Lagavulin among others. In the Rockies we had a fantastic day in Mount Rider on Scotty’s, Haggard Glacier and Primero and hit fantastic tree skiiing in the Morkill including Valentinos, Kickin’ Country, Piano Man and OTK. 

A huge thanks to all who joined us to make this such a fun and memorable week!

March 16- Another beautiful day here with clear sunny skies, no wind, and temperatures -1 to – 8 C.  We did a Blackwater and Mount Rider tour today.  We started with sunny aspects, looking for soft snow. Great scenery and good conditions on big south facing bowls like Tonto, Alakanda, Cheslatta and Sekani. In the afternoon we skied soft snow on Scotty’s, Pro Bowl and finished on a spectacular run on the backside of Mnt Rider. A great day of heli-skiing.

A fantastic week!

We had a spectacular week of alpine skiing in both the Rockies and the Cariboos. The 20cm of new snow we got last weekend still remains soft and silky in many locations in the alpine and at tree line. A fantastic group of people made for a memorable and very fun week!

A Great Start to the Season!

We just wrapped up our first week of the season with guests – and it was a great one! We had good skiing in the trees for the first few days of the week- with light dry powder and lots of faceshots! We had a spectacular day on Thursday down on the glaciers in the Cariboos, beautiful sunny skies and settled powder. Friday we skied in the Mount Rider zone of the Rockies, with some trickier conditions, but still a great day in the mountains.

There is sun and cooler temperatures in the forecast for the upcoming week, with snow forecast for Thursday.

A big thanks to all of our guests who joined us for the first week of our 23rd season! Thanks for a fantastic kick off to 2015!
