Here is the latest snow update for the Powder Highway (southeastern British Columbia) ski resorts of Fernie Alpine Resort, Kimberley Alpine Resort and Kicking Horse Mountain Resort and more. It looks real good with a return of regular storm patterns and cooler temperatures.

It looks like the incessant upper-level high pressure ridge will weaken and start yielding to some Pacific storms as we move into February, the first few days should be the transition. Due to this, we are expecting February (as has seemed to be the case a lot in the last few years) to be more active across the west, more specifically the southwest US, but also including southwest Canada (Powder Highway region) and the northwest US (Cascades and northern Rocky Mountains), for colder temperatures, more powder (and less/ no base elevation rain), and significant snowfalls.
With over 12 feet of total snowfall to date the ski resorts of Fernie Alpine Resort and Kicking Horse Mountain Resort have some of the deepest snow in North America and the deepest snow in the Canadian Rockies region
Good reason to get out and ski now but also note that the month that typically brings the most snowfall is yet to come….March! If you live in the United States and have recently experienced a long dry spell then would suggest that combined with the exchange rate (big savings) and snow this is a winter to ski the Powder Highway of British Columbia.
