+30cm (More on the Way?)Posted: February 25, 2009
The latest storm has come to an end, and Lake Louise ended up with around 30cm of powder that was nice and light, thanks to both the lack of wind and the -25C mountain-top temperatures. The cold also made the snow incredibly sticky, making travel on flatter areas more of an effort. The hard pre-storm snow surface was still evident in some places, but as more traffic packs the new snow into a soft base, it should set things up nicely for the next system to come through – currently forecasted to reach us after the weekend. Things are also supposed to warm up right away, with clear skies expected on Friday.
Enjoy the great conditions, and for those attending the 5th annual Red & White Ball in Banff tonight, we’ll see you there!
