Weekly Shred Report – 28th April 2014

Hey there,

Sad times, the resorts are closing, the snow is still falling, the winds are calm and the sun is shining. Oh how i love spring skiing, minus the rain of course.

First up sorry folks for the infrequent posting, i’ll do better next season.
In better news, i’ll be writing a season that was account of the Alberta and BC ski season in the coming weeks so stay tuned.
Almost lastly, we’ll be expanding our maps to France and potentially New Zealand this year so tweet us your preference! We’ll also be looking at expanding and improving our capture of LIVE resort snow data from the awesome and amazing folks at MountainWeather.com.

For the last week of the 13/14 ski season, let’s go crazy, put on some onesie’s, fluro leg warmers and glide across the slush and review the snowfall for the last week.

Resort of the week

This week’s resort of the week with a final hurrah is Whistler Blackcomb with a spring time 16cm to go with the lovely warm temps. Nothing like some last minute back country before the Mountain Bikers arrive.

Weekly Shred Report – 5th April 2014

G’day skiers and boarders alike,

How amazing is this snow!!! Just the car park at Louise was knee deep. March was incredible, April keeps it coming.

How incredible, well lets take moment and look at some of the stats from around the hills:

  • Lake Louise saw a 23% increase in its base in March
  • WhiteWater had a 26% increase in its base jumping from 228cm to 309.
  • Sunshine had a better February but was a reasonable 18% increase from 170cm to 209cm.

Let’s stop now and focus in on Fernie, because they had a March that will be held to remember for the ages.
Of the 31 days in March, Fernie had 26 days with fresh snowfall!

Weekly Shred Report – 22nd Mar 2014

Hey fellow snow hounds,

It’s been an incredible March for snowfall but the temperatures have been all over the place making for some crazy upside down layers of snow.
This and this is a costly and timely reminder that for those of us enjoying the mountains, we need to be constantly aware of the conditions.

Ok, lets get into some better news. What a month we’re having!

Fernie for example has a 30%+ increase in it’s base over Feb-Mar. Kicking Horse during the same period had a 25% increase, check it out below:

Weekly Shred Report – 7th Feb 2014

Why hello there and welcome to this week’s shred report.

This week has been a fairly average week for the Canadian Rockies low temperatures, high winds and not a whole deal of snow to contend with. If you can get down state side you may found yourself with some powder envy especially around Utah. For those of us tied to the Canadian rockies it may be a wait for some new snow. Anyway onto the details.

Resort of the week

This week’s resort of the week is our awesome community of friends down in Castle Mountain who got dealt a respectable 16cm this week. Most of it between Monday and Wednesday.
