A whopping 40 cm of snow is expected to fall in the East Kootenay area this weekend, but a powder day doesn’t have to be a bad thing. There’s no better time to book a ski trip! Kicking Horse Mountain Resort encourages you to book while there are still openings. Ski-in ski-out accommodations are already sold out.
If you do head out to the slopes, remember to drive with caution on the roads. The winter storm is predicted to last for several days, and gusts of wind may blow up to 20+ km/h at times. Mainroad crews will be working hard throughout the duration of the snowstorm, but remember to plan for extra travel time and careful driving. At the beginning there will be compact snow on all routs until the temperature warms up enough to allow de-icing.
