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.
Oh and i heard this years World Ski and Snowboard Festival was pretty freakin amazing as well so big up Whistler!

P.S Hudson Bay Mountain oh yeah!!

Week #7

Welcome to 2013 folks!! OMG it’s the Stoner Duckie! Usually when the stoner duckie appears inverted in means the drought of snow is going to be broken within a week. Let’s cross our fingers.

No snow for weeks, the mountains over in Western Canada are now running a drought! With the appearance of the Stoner Duckie at Whistler our hopes are high for some new snow. This one looks like it had a particularly good new years eve and perhaps partied too hard.
