17-December-2015: La Niña Ride Report

I'll be damned if the sun didn't shine today. What an amazing day we had. Conditions are shaping up very nicely here in Revelstoke - although we haven't had the same accumulation as the coast over the past week, we have been lucky enough to get some snow and more lucky that freezing levels have dropped to valley bottom and our snowpack is tightening up nicely. The snow is cold smoke and deep and the base is there now. Ready to go. It looks like we have our next wave of storms moving in later tomorrow and through into next week so it should be a good reset in time for Christmas holidays. Thankfully the warm weather last week didn't completely destroy the snow down low and we are still riding all our areas from valley bottom with full coverage and groomers are working hard at keeping the trails in good shape. Although it is tough when there are 300+ sleds going up a day! Avalanche conditions have settled down but still a few weak layers to keep in mind - check your local bulletin at www.avalanche.ca for full details. 

It's been a great start to the winter and looking forward to bringing you lot's of good news this year so stay tuned for your weekly ride reports!
