Current Conditions

Very mild temperatures yesterday, with a (thankfully) cool breeze. A little light snow higher up helped to keep things soft, although by the PM, there wasn’t too much hard stuff to be found around the mountain. Schober’s and Sun Bowl were nice in the afternoon, especially through the groomed paths of Stump Farm and Lower Bowl, as was Zehnder Way over in Founders. Groomed paths are changeable hour by hour this time of year, especially on the lower mountain where the sugary morning texture evolved into slush for the end of the day, more so on the flatter pitches.

Today should find mid mountain groom in a decent set of loose granular snow over a firmer base, while the lower mountain sugar will have been a little difficult to groom with temperatures taking until midnight to drop to around zero. While we may see the odd inconsistency first up, the team have played it pretty smooth in general this season, and it is likely to be pretty soft early on in any case. Off piste continues to be higher, shaded slopes for the AM and lower, sunnier slopes later in the day once the solar heating program kicks in. Expect a few clouds about today, increasing into the afternoon, with the remote chance of isolated flurries.

Snow Reporter Biography - Evan Pacey

an image

The wandering wordsmith is back for another season of masochistic 5:30 AM starts – he may have made his bed, but it seems he is unable to lie in it! Here is his bio:

A transplanted Aussie via the UK, he can still be heard lamenting that with his accent, he used to be special around here! Having been on the mountain more winter’s than not over the last decade and a half, he’s seen the constant evolution that is Panorama, and still finds plenty to turn his head amongst the massive variety of terrain.

Enjoying the easy option of chairlifts up and gravity feeding down on either one or two planks, Evan spends the majority of his winter on the mountain. Be it teaching with the Ski & Ride Centre, volunteering adaptive technique with PASS, or simply making tracks for the pure joy of it, he’s rarely off snow for any great length of time. (That said, he can often be found perking up on a Lusti’s coffee, or regaling in the T-Bar after the odd social lubricant – we all know what happens with all work and no play!)

Working in conjunction with the Panorama Avalanche Office, and with backup provided by the Countess of Accumulation, he intends to infotain you throughout the season, direct you to the well groomed and the rough diamonds alike, and provide the interpretations that are the stories behind the figures. Now buckle up, strap in and ride off into the sunset……..

so, what are you waiting for?
