The ridge over the resort area will be slow to break down however by Wednesday we expect that Pacific moisture will make some progress into interior B.C. No strong systems are expected but we should get into some occasional snow at times for Wednesday and Thursday. Temperatures will be a few degrees milder for later this week with a temperature range between minus 2 during the day and minus 8 at night
We had no new snow overnight, but with our base sitting at 180cm, and a sunny day ahead of us it is going to be a wonderful day to be on the hill
