Weather stations in Glacier National Park are reporting that there is way more snow on the ground than normal for this time of year.

This morning, there was a 19″ snowpack at 4,300-feet on Rogers Pass, an hour from Revelstoke, BC. The average of the last 54-years is 5″.

Slightly higher, at 6,200-feet, the current snowpack is 43″, compared to the 54-year average of 18″.

Rogers Pass has some of the best roadside skiing in North America, giving access to vast backcountry terrain featuring long gladed runs and alpine glacier traverses. 

A snowier and colder winter than normal has been predicted for western Canada, and so far, those predictions look correct.
