What do you see? I see a dreamy landscape. I see the chairlift rising from fog swirling around Whistler Blackcomb Village. I see me jumping off the chair and heading for some sweet powder-filled glades. Shhhh. Dont wake me.
Kicking Horse near Golden B.C. is well on its way to a bucking good season. More than 21 cm fell in the past 24 hours with a promise of more in the next few days. It is looking like the Dec. 8 will be opening day, perfect for the powder ponies.
Take a good look at those trees that currently have a light dusting of snow on them at the top of SilverStar Mountain Resort near Vernon, B.C. It wont be long until they have their thick winter coats that make them look like otherworldly. They're called snow ghosts. The humidity at the top of the mountain makes the moisture stick like glue until the original shape is lost under a mountain of ice. Stay tuned throughout the season. We will happily be posting photos of the beautiful formations.
Dust off those chairs please! It looks like weve got some skiing to do! Kimberley Mountain Resort, near Cranbrook, just got a big 'ol dump of white stuff with another 20 centimetres in the forecase before the weekend. If this keeps up, the December 9th opening day will be epic!
