It is ON in Canada. While it is dry and mild in the Alps, British Columbia is getting hammered with dry cold powder. Storms found their way to the mountains and in Revelstoke they experience the 3rd best winter of the past 13 years. Since the start of the measurements this season, 636 cm of fresh snow has fallen already.
The result is that the snow cover is already there 330 cm thick an the end of the storm cycle is not yet in sight. At the same time we have preety mediocre conditions in the Alps and the long term is still very unclear and not without risks. Any new snow taht will fall in the near future will accumulate on a very old snow pack which will guarantee avalanche. Combine this with powder panic after a dry spell and you know that a nwe storm will certainly cause problems in the Alps.
Meanwhile, a group of friends is already en route in British Columbia and the images below say everything. It is deep, it is magic.
January 20th, Arjen, me and a large group of other riders leave for Canada for the ultimate road trip along the Powder Highway. We start by visting some ski resorts, and we will then make some stops at perhaps the most beautiful gems of BC. We will end the trip with 3.5 days of heliskiing in the largest area of CMH: Revelstoke.
There is one spot left for this ultimate trip. You can choose to come with us for the entire trip or just enjoy the heli for a few days. Flights are competitively priced at this time via Air Canada and the snow is there, so why not joins us? You can find some details about this trip here. Do you have any questions? Do you want to know all the ins and outs? Do not hesitate to call directly with Cloud9 or to contact Arjen or me.
