2020/2021 Recap – Canada’s Longest Season
Updated 5 months ago Bob Ambrose
The 20/21 La Nina winter delivered just enough snow at just the right times to be considered a very good winter. Snowfall started in mid-October enabling Mt. Norquay to be the first resort to open in Canada on October 24th. The snowpack built slowly but steadily throughout the season bringing sibling resort Sunshine Village the distinction of being the very last resort to close in Canada (May 24).
That's a Wrap

Closing weekend at Snowbowl is upon us. This week's storm delivered 7" of new snow to the ski area. Season total at Snowbowl 225", average 260", not too shabby considering the late start and it being a La Nina year.

2020-2021 Season Recap
Updated 6 months ago Alan Smith
Most ski areas are closed for the season and high pressure will dominate the weather pattern for the foreseeable future, so I decided that now would be a good time to wrap up the winter forecasting season. Most regions of BC experienced an above-average winter in terms of snowpack, except for the southeast corner where snowpack has been below average.

2020-2021 Season Recap

Snowfall at Jackson Hole was above average for the SIXTH season in a row, which is an incredible streak! Really it was a feast-or-famine type winter with a ridiculously snowy 6-week stretch but also some long dry spells. Unlike recent winters, snowpack depth peaked 6 weeks earlier than average this year and our snowpack is about 20% below average heading into spring runoff season.

With Big Sky, Red Lodge, Lookout Pass and Great Divide set to conclude their winter operations this weekend, I thought I’d share some observations of this unique season from both sides of the Divide. Best news of all, every ski area from the mom and pops to the fancy resorts made it through this pandemic winter to the end without closing for health reasons. Kudos to everyone who made that happen!

Season Recap 2020/21
Updated 5 months ago Jason Cordeira
Jay Peak notched another foot of snow during our last event on 4/22-23, but otherwise the season is mostly a wrap. The 20/21 season will go down as underwhelming in my book, but there were a few bright spots of good skiing with a massive storm in December, some good snow from the middle of January through February, and decent spring skiing through March into April.
