Ok so I’m following the Whistler and Sunpeaks threads with some interest as I arrive in country on the 30th.

It seems snow or lack of (in Whistler especially) is topical on both threads albeit with some excellent forecasting coming through.

I thought it may be beneficial to start a thread to merge some of the forecasting, especially for those of us unable to pick up the longer range forecasts.

Do you want individual resort forecasts to keep going in those individual threads, or put them all here? Coastal BC, interior BC and the Rockies will often have different snow situations, so I'm not sure I follow about "merging some of the forecasting".

I would have thought it would make sense to keep the forecasts/comments in their respective resort threads. Let us know what you'd like to see in this thread.

id Like to see all the forecasting in one thread albeit acknowledging many locations have unique or varying results so making it clear if the snow is for coastal, interior or Rockies would be good.

I know many of us are crossing into multiple localities I.e I’m skiing coastal and interior as I know others are. Also many resorts don’t have threads or those in them don’t have the posters who have access to detail. For instance Su peaks has some great detail but silverstar etc not so much.

Fair enough.

Perhaps the Moderators or Bosses could make a ruling on what should go where. I'd prefer not to be admonished for putting something like forecasting comments in the wrong place.

I don’t think moderators should care, I just think if people post in the resort thread awesome and if that info is useful to other resorts maybe someone will cut and paste the info here.

Whistler finally getting some love with the next few days also looking ok with 20cm predicted today.

the snow also seems to be making it inland with Sunpeaks and silverstar getting a top up as well.

It looks like this week will deliver some snow across B.C., particularly NYE and NYD, but freezing levels are a bit on the high side, so the interior may fare better than the coastal ranges. Fingers crossed there's not too much r*^n...

SP got 50 cm in about 24 hrs. I rarely ski Whistler so it's been a long time since I skied that much snow that was so heavy. Great for the base though.
