Wait… what month is it? Over 10″ of fresh snow has fallen in the last 24 hours at Castle Mountain Resort in Alberta, Canada.
With more precipitation in the forecast, a reminder that alpine travel is not recommended due to potentially unstable snowpack. Changing weather conditions have raised the concern for avalanches. If you do venture out in the snow, be sure to bring your avalanche safety gear.
A low-pressure system over Alberta is bringing snow to higher elevations. Two snowfall warnings have been issued by Environment Canada; along Highway 3 from Paulson Summit to Kootenay Pass for the Boundary and Kootenay Lake regions.
Castle Mountain Resort is the second-largest resort in Alberta. It averages 354″ of snow every season and has some of the longest, continuous fall line runs in North America.
The resort has North America’s only resort-based cat skiing operation and is proud to be “driven by powder, not profit.”
