British Columbia in Mid-March

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I'm considering a trip to BC in mid-March (possibly Revelstoke).  I have never skied out there and am on a budget, so I would hate to spend airfare, etc. and run into bad conditions.

 

What conditions to expect for mid-March at Revelstoke or similar?  Ice, Powder, Wet Powder, Rain......etc.?

 

I may wait until next year, if the conditions are too unstable in mid-March.

 

Thanks in Advance!

This year has been a total bust pretty much everywhere in BC. It is such a weird winter it would be very unwise to guess what March will be like.

Yes, Whitewater only has about 6 feet of settled base, with only 12-14" forecast for the coming week...

 

After the first week or so, January was dry and cold.

 

Mid-March is usually pretty good. Elevations below 4,000 ft may see significant rain.

Book your flights into GEG on SWA and a rental car.
If conditions don't look good, cancel at no charge.
It's an amazing area and should be on everyone's bucket list!

I'm doing the same, SWA to GEG bt plan to drive northeast- Schweitzer to Fernie to Whitefish, seems like snow is more frequent in this direction.  Still looking for discount Fernie ticket(s)...
