Big White
160 - 170 - 180 - 190!! The snow keeps piling up at Big White and Silver Star, with the consistent storms dumping champagne powder on both mountains! Right now, Big White's base is 190 centimetres, and Silver Star has just passed the 175 cm mark. These days, if you wait for a couple of hours, it will likely go up! Note that the on-line Snow Report for both mountains has now added a "Snow in Past 7 Days" feature, so that you can keep track on storm cycle totals. Both resorts have had over 70 centimetres in the last seven days. See you 'in the pow!'

Jackson Hole
Jackson Hole Skiers Welcome Heavy Snowfall After a dismal season in the North last year, Jackson Hole is tooting its horn. The recent 97-inch storm at JHMR gave the mammoth area the second deepest mid-mountain base depth in their 40-year history! Last week's storms puked eight feet of snow, an average of 10 inches a day, for nine days straight creating incredibly dry, bottomless powder conditions. More's on the way. Now's the time to sign up for their backcountry clinic or steep and deep camp. 800.443.8613
