The weather has been perfect for ski racing!!

A dusting of fresh snow yesterday morning on Blackcomb.

At 2240 meters the temperature was -4, winds were 5-10 KPH from the S. At 1650 meters the temperature was -3, no new snow reported there. In the valley it was -2. Observations taken at 06:00 Hrs this AM.

For the forecast expect cloudier skies with the chance of a flurry and the odd sunny break. Yes, more unsettled weather for the next couple of days.  The pattern should change by Friday and we are looking at a sunny Easter weekend. A weak offshore low is off the coast, best chance of light snow will be Wednesday evening into early Thursday morning. A strong upper ridge will bring dry weather and warm temperatures for the weekend. Guesstimates 1-2 cm by Thursday morning

 Was asking for pictures of the cars parked on the Duffy, with more back country users there may have to be additional parking areas established!!

Hi Wango,

I was on my way home from the Rockies yesterday. Here are some pics as requested of a busy Saturday on the Duffey. this is Cerise creek, 32 cars. Over 110 vehicles between Blowdown & Joffre. Glad to be back on the Coast!
