It just got MEGA-deep.

Got snow? We sure do. We dug ourselves out just in time for this update.

The last week has been one for the record books… The most recent system moved across the province with force and determination, shattering snowfall records in many places, closing every major highway into and out of the lower mainland, and there was more than enough left for the Eastern part of B.C.

On the radio they’ve been referring to it as ‘Snow-mageddon’! Dramatic, catchy, and makes you assume a ridiculously deep voice to say it. Perfect.

With Kicking Horse reporting almost a metre of snow since last weekend, and our zone receiving even more than that in many places, the skiing has been, shall we say, FAN-TIT-DEEP-TASTIC! Deepest days of the winter!

Patricia recently shared: “This was the experience of a lifetime. Every feature was over-and-above what I expected, from the base to the guides to the depth of the safety info to the equipment and terrain. It’s truly a first-class operation.”

Faceshots? Jackets and hats completely caked in powder? Not seeing your skis all day?#WeLiveForThis.
