Fernies lacking this year like reported and the base is low but we have had some good powder days already , also the heavy snows tend to show up in Feb./Mar. so that should fix it up a bunch. Sat./Sun. were hard snow days but that should be changing by this coming Sun. if the reports are right.
I was at Louise last Wed. and found little stashes of powder all over and they have had some snow since , Sunshine on Thurs. was ok also. Overall it is skiable most everywhere but you have to watch for the odd rock that you normally wouldn't see.
It's supposed to start raining on the coast on Sun. which hopefully will travel inland, maybe it will rain at Fernie again and some of you remember what can happen right after that.
Pretty hard to compare to last year but we're still skiing.
