I was at Kicking Horse at the same time as the person who posted on TetonGravity.com (Jan. 25-28). Unfortunately, the nasty rain that hit BC and the PNW really did a number on the skiing. From what I understand by talking to people who had converged on Kicking Horse from other areas, KH did have the best conditions around. We skied laps off the highest lift, which got boring simply for the lack of terrain, but the snow was decent enough. Just no new snow while we were there (the rest of the mountain was icy and downright treacherous in places). Also, almost everything off that top lift got bumped up because of all the traffic. We left on the 28th to do four days of catskiing at Chatter Creek, where we had PHENOMENAL snow! We skied in knee-deep to thigh-deep snow the entire four days. No kidding! It honest-to-goodness saved our trip. We had snow three of the four days while we were there, too. But when we returned to Golden, there had been a continuation of the meltdown, it had been in the 40s (F) the entire time we were gone. We left on the 2nd and skipped skiing at Lake Louise because conditions there were worse. However, from what I understand, Kicking Horse got at least a foot of snow a few days after we got home. So, while I can't tell you whether they've gotten any more than that, I can tell you that they got that initial "freshening" of snow. Wish I could be of more help.
We were really disappointed not to be able to ski most of KH's terrain, because it sure looked awesome, but there's not much you can do about bad snow conditions. Let's hope the rest of the ski season is better for all those resorts that have really suffered (PNW and Northeast).
