Snow Roundup for April 11:
Powder Alerts, Prime Conditions and Stoke
Winter is not letting up! After some wild powder days last week, we're still getting a trickle of snow at resorts, keeping the stoke flowing into the final weeks of the season.
Kicking Horse - 10cm / 48 hours, 41cm / last 7 days
BC’s steepest and most kicking runs continue to ride this week with some nice snow the past two days.
If you are ready to challenge yourself to some steep runs, or you want to take it easy with some panoramic views, head to Kicking Horse this weekend before they close up shop for the season.
Nakiska Ski Area - 6cm / 24 hours
One of Alberta’s hidden gems, Nakiska continues to see snow. Perfect for those of us that might need a few extra weeks of skiing before the warm weather takes over.
Sunshine Village - 5cm / 24 hours
Sunshine village always has a longer season thanks to its pristine location and this year will be no exception. With 19cm of snow this past week, and snow consistently hitting the mountain, you can expect great skiing for a few more weeks at Sunshine.
