Vacay.ca is excited to partner with SnowSeekers through January 2018 to bring you stories and inspiration about booking a snow-filled adventure you won’t soon forget. In previous installments we wrote about how to have the best spring break at Whistler and tips for how to ski powder. In this column, we bring you a webcam roundup, so you can check out all the snow that’s coming to #SkiBC resorts.

Wow! Did you see the snow forecast for Whistler and the coastal mountains? It’s crazy! The Weather Network meteorologist, Tyler Hamilton says the biggest accumulation of snow on the planet is set to land on higher elevations through Saturday and Sunday. “How much?” you ask with bated breath. A whopping 200 centimetres! If you are heading for the freshies, check out where the Whistler locals go.

Sun Peaks pulls in fresh pow

SunSeek

Sun Peaks, near Kamloops, B.C. has just enough fresh powder planned to keep your tips covered today and for the next few days. If you’re planning a trip to the cool alpine village, find out just how much you can jam into a day here.

The freshies are keeping the groomers up all night at SilverStar

SilverStar

That same weather system dumping on Whistler is blasting into the interior to SilverStar and will drop the fluff all week long. More than 13 cm landed over night.

Red Mountain ready for action

Brrrr! That little Rosario statue looks chilly under that dusting of snow. He better hold onto his hat; there is more powder planned for the rest of the week. Red Mountain near Rossland, B.C. has seen 16 cm in the last seven days and plan on more just in time for the Canadian Open Freeride Championships (Junior) this weekend. Learn just how deep it gets at Red here.

The chairs need a sweeping at Whitewater

Whitewater

In the last week, Whitewater Ski Resort near Nelson, B.C. has seen over 35 cm of powder land. That’s adding up to make it a pretty solid base of nearly two metres. Check out what the Whitewater locals think about the snow here.

More from the powder highway

FernieFog

Don’t you love it when the bottom of the chair is in the morning fog and then BAM! The chair breaks into the sun and you spend the day doing laps above the clouds? Yeah, us too. Fernie Alpine Resort is expecting to get the tail end of that storm hammering the coast. A few centimetres should meet you every morning for the next few days. Find out from a Fernie groomer where you should be tossing the planks down for a Powder Highway rip here.
