Not Quite 30cmPosted: February 7, 2011
Leaving Banff this morning after brushing the new snow off my car, I was hopeful on the drive that the height of new snow would increase as I approached Lake Louise. Alas, it was not to be, and the forecasted 30-55cm overnight failed to materialize. We did get 8cm at our weather plot near Pika corner, however, which means skiing conditions will once again be fantastic, especially as the new snow sits on top of the soft snow from a few days ago. With light winds blowing during the night, the new snow should cover the mountain in a nice even layer, and places that saw good conditions on the weekend, will be even better today.
