Northern BC Is Going Off?
Want no crowds? Big Terrain? All you can eat pow?
From Brian Hall who owns the Storks Nest Inn in Smithers at Hudson Bay Mountain “Toured at the ski area today. 45cm fresh.Minus 10. Was getting faceshots skinning uphill“. The forecast for Northern BC for the next couple of weeks looks decidedly good for pow and for temperatures. Shames is forecasting 48cms over the week to the next weekend (BC’s Family Day long weekend). Smithers is forecasting “just” 34cms new on top of the 45 new they just had.
