Forget “winter is coming” – winter is here! [PHOTOS]

There is snow falling across BC and Alberta right now with more in the forecast next week! Here at SnowSeekers, we are totally okay with skipping fall at higher elevations altogether and heading straight into winter.

While the Canadian Rockies are prone to seeing snowfall even in the summer, the snowfall other resorts saw in September was a pleasant surprise.

There have been a number of forecasts predicting another “La Niña” winter this coming season, much like last year. This would be good news for ski resorts in Western Canada who saw some epic powder days throughout the season. See when your favourite resort is opening and get ready to hit the slopes. Remember last February? Many resorts saw record-breaking snowfall making for some epic days of skiing and riding – repeated again in early March. Three feet of fresh light pow in 48 hours? Yes, please!

Don’t forget that in BC, from October 1 to March 31, winter tires or ones with the M+S symbol are mandatory. It’s not all areas, so make sure that if you’re going on a road trip that you check so you don’t get turned around.
