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!
