The majority of snow will likely focus on the northern Cascades (*Mt Baker), Whistler, and most of interior BC. Right now, Whistler Blackcomb is in the epicenter of the storm and should see upwards of 60″ by Saturday morning.

“A generally westerly flow across the eastern Pacific will push a string of low pressure systems across the BC south coast for the next few days. It will bring snow accumulations in several impulses through Saturday morning. Each impulse will be accompanied by moderate to strong alpine winds and generally seasonal temperatures.”Whistler Blackcomb

Snow won’t really taper off until Saturday afternoon so powder hounds will have a good chance at getting their fair share of faceshots before the weekend is over.
