It has been an interesting past couple weeks here at Vagabond Lodge and Kicking Horse Resort. Snow conditions have gone from good to ever better with some nice dumps in the past week and in January the crowds are gone and basically it is the locals. Temperatures have remained nice and crisp which means good light snow. We had one day recently where it was getting a bit warm(plus 2 C). We had a long spell of a temperature inversion where it was above 0C at the top and as cold as -19C at the bottom.
The big excitement was having our Prime Minister Justin Trudeau stay at the resort with his family for most of last week which was really great. I am non political for the most part but just having him here is a feather in our cap. We had the pleasure of hosting some of his RCMP security people while he stayed. While they were mostly tightlipped about their role, they were very courteous and respectful.
I have been going up regularly to both T2 and Terminator and finding some fresh snow daily. Video is from January 10th off the top of Terminator.
