Despite not having any big dumps of snow in the past week, we are still able to find some nice stashs of powder here and there. It takes a bit more effort and are are going "out of bounds" but keeping safe.
Unfortunately there have been some horrible incidents in our area in the past week or so with two people dying in an avalanche just outside the Kicking Horse boundary a couple weeks ago and then 3 people who were on a heli skiing trip with one of the companies south of here were also killed.
We have been avoiding our favourite out of bounds area this winter because of the high avalanche hazard.
The season is winding down with the closing date of the resort scheduled for April 16th which is not far away.
But if history means anything the next month can be some of the best skiing, with warmer weather. You can book on-line or give us a call 250 344 2622.
Despite the smaller snowpack this year there is still some great skiing to be had. Video is from yesterday with family and friends.
