Revelstoke Conditions Report – Powder On Feb 7

Eric Behn | | WeatherWeather

The Family Day long weekend is upon British Columbia this week, and in response, Ullr has granted Revelstoke Mountain Resort with a dump of fresh snow. After a reported knee deep powder day Thursday, and an unfortunate warming Friday, things appear to be back and booming for the weekend.

New Snow:

24 Hours: 9cm
7 Days: 93cm

Base Depth: 229 cm

A pile of packs at the bottom of Stoke Chair mean in bounds skiing is going off.

Snowbrains spent the day ripping up Revelstoke Mountain Resort on Saturday February 7th and experienced some good conditions that only look to get better as the weekend continues. The holiday weekend brought a large number of skiers and boarder to the resort, but there was lots of snow for everyone to enjoy, and lines were never long enough to even consider complaining.

The Stoke Chair was the most popular as freezing levels hovered mid mountain. Lots of powder up top for all to enjoy.

The opening of the North Bowl brought a large number of skiers and snowboards to hit a nice deep layer of fresh soft snow throughout the whole day. Freezing levels hovered around the mid mountain and began to drop as the day progressed. The top of Stoke Chair had a few hundred meters of classic Revelstoke Powder, and then began to gain a bit of moisture lower down the mountain. No ice was observed on the runs.

The Avalanche Ranch sponsored by Back Country Access is a new feature at Revelstoke. It allows backcountry users to enable a number of avalanche transceivers buried under the snow in order to practice beacon searches.

Avalanche bulletins were reporting HIGH danger after an interesting cycle moved through the region over the last few days. It was not recommended that skier’s leave the resort boundary. Over the next few days, the conditions should begin to stabilize, but always check your local avalanche bulletin before heading out.

The clouds broke from time to time, but most of the day skiers shredded within the clouds.
Family Day weekend brought large numbers to the ski hill, a welcomed site after a less than average snow season so far this year.

The after noon saw snow levels began to pick up and snow began falling on lower elevations. Revelstoke is forecasting another 9 cm over night and seven more tomorrow to keep the slopes refreshed and provide more fun for the further flow of weekend skiers and snowboarders.

The afternoon came with dropping freezing levels and increased precipitation.
