Very impressive so far, some places have more snow now than what Australian resorts get for the season !!

Marko, Cypress Mtn and Grouse Mtn (not sure about Seymour Mtn) have either already opened or will do so this weekend. My teens will board Cypress this Sunday, and are absolutely frothing with excitement. About 95 cm up on Cypress already!

132 cm on Cypress Mtn this morning! (I forgot to add in a previous post that Cypress, Grouse and Seymour Mtns are all local to Vancouver).

My sons had a great boarding day yesterday on Cypress, and it's cold for Vancouver in November. Let the snow fall (but up on the mountains)!

Hey Marko

You are right!!!
Big White opens this weekend, and we will be there to check it all out.
We are actually getting our first flakes of snow in Kelowna today as well, so I guess winter is truly on the way.

Marko: Here are two weather sites you will want to check regularly:

http://www.theweathernetwork.com/index.htm

http://weatheroffice.ec.gc.ca/canada_e.html

When I was in the Okanagan a couple of weeks ago, there was snow at the lower altitudes (e.g. Kelowna), and much more higher.

No new snow on the hills this week,. My son was up at Silver Star with school today, and the runs are starting to get icy. Still a decent amount of snow, but it sure would be nice to get some fresh stuff.... Maybe next week.

Just back from a week at Fernie. The "pineapple express" came through while we were there and it rained everyday. The lower mountain was looking pretty rough when we left. Lots of white stuff up top though but heavy and wet. Not the powder we were hoping for but still a great time. It has been snowing more since we left but who knows with this crazy weather. Have been there four times and it has never been as wet for so long. Still love it though!

Big White has good snow now. Hubby and the kids went up 5 times over the Christmas break. Crowds were crazy between Christmas and New Years. It is cold and rainy tonight in Kelowna, so the mountians should be getting more snow.
