North Shore mountains receive some new snow

Dec 19 2017, 10:29 pm

Winter is making a temporary comeback on the peaks of the North Shore mountains following yesterday’s storm.

Earlier this morning, Grouse Mountain reported on its website that it had received 14 centimetres of 24 hour snow with freezing levels dipping to the chalet’s altitude.

This has allowed the mountain to open Greenway, Paradise and Paradise Jib Park for riding and skiing today between 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Over to the west, Cypress Mountain received about four centimetres of new snow, but all runs remain closed. Meanwhile at Mount Seymour, the smallest of the North Shore facilities received no new measurable snow.

Further up north, Whistler Blackcomb received four centimetres of snow to give the mountains a total of 55 centimetres of new snow over a seven-day period.

Beginning Wednesday and into the weekend, conditions across the South Coast will deteriorate with the arrival of a warm moisture system that will send freezing levels far above local mountain peaks.
