SOUTHWEST CANADA FORECAST DISCUSSION - Updated Mar 14, 2019
REST OF MARCH: Saturday we expect a fairly well organized low pressure system to move in and drop mostly light to moderate snow across the region. Mid next week we expect storms to move in across the western US, most of it south of Canada, then next weekend we could be seeing some snow as a stronger storm moves into the area, but again mostly south. The last few days of March and into April should improve with stronger and colder, more northern path systems expected. Revelstoke (which has the most vertical in North America, and arguably some of the best terrain also) is still looking good! CM

Most of the snow accumulation shown below occurs next weekend, March 22nd - 24th:
