Friday, February 11, 2011 @ 10am: We received another 5 cms of new snow in the last 24 hours with light snow expected to continue all day today. Saturday’s forecast calls for increasing snowfall with up to 10 cms by Saturday night. Sunday is looking great as well with a good mix of sun, cloud, and light snowfall. Temperatures throughout the weekend should remain very mild with highs of -3 and -6.
The ski area remains in fine mid-winter shape with a respectable 150-184cm base, and 119 open runs. The Showtime Terrain Park (42 current features), and the all new Snow Cross course are well groomed and ready for action.
This weekend’s events:
This weekend’s events include the Skier/Boarder Cross Open Series #2 which gets underway on Saturday (Feb. 12) with the Skier Cross series, then on Sunday (Feb. 13) with the Boarder Cross series. The Canadian Powder 8 Championships also takes place in Purple Bowl (location tentative) on Saturday, Feb. 12.
Come out this weekend, carve some turns, and enjoy a great winter weekend at the Rockies’ Biggest, Canada’s Best!
