The Canadian Rockies aren’t experiencing the same woes as American ski resorts in the west. In fact, some Canadian resorts are reporting some of the best early-conditions that they’ve ever seen.
Kicking Horse Mountain Resort opened for a preview weekend on December 4th and 5th with the deepest snowpack they’ve ever recorded for an opening day. They reported a 160cm (~63in.) base! The resort has already totaled 324cm (128in.) on the season, and things are looking good for skiers and riders in the Canadian Rockies.
Kicking Horse will be open daily for the remainder of the season starting on December 10th.
The deepest base we have ever opened with.
Snowfall total: 323cm
Back to the goods this Friday.

You know all I hear about Canadians is how nice and generous they are. You’d think they could share a little bit of that snow with their neighbors to the south, right?
Things looks like they could be turning around this week for many resorts across the west, but saying that the start to this season has been slow would be a huge understatement. It’s dryer than overbaked Thanksgiving turkey out there. We need snow. Now!
