Looking into Garibaldi Park, has everyone filled in the Park Survey.  Bottom of this page.

At 2280 meters as of 06:00 it was - 15, winds were 20-30 KPH from the South. At 1550 meters the temperature was -12, 92 % relative humidity and the barometer is rising. 12 cm of new snow overnight at pig alley and cat skinner weather plot recorded 4 cm. The valley temperature is -4. Its incredible that a convective cloud sitting on Whistler can produce 3 times the amount of snow compared to Blackcomb 4 kilometres away and 100 meters lower.
