Shuswap Lake: March 23, 2022  

Most of the low elevation snow is now gone, leaving just a few of the bigger snow piles behind. However, warmer weather and some more rain in the forecast will melt away those piles rather quickly. Mara Lake is now mostly ice free and current lake levels are within the normal range for this time of year. The current mountain snowpack is roughly as deep as it has been during the same time period of the past 2 years. At the start of the 2022 main runoff snow levels should be slightly higher than last year.

About half of the Provinces have stopped reporting COVID numbers on a daily basis. Therefore, as of tomorrow we discontinue our daily COVID updates but will provide a weekly update instead, likely to be published each Tuesday or Wednesday for the time being.

Mountain Snowpack: March 23, 2022  

Mid-range mountain temperatures have warmed up a bit, remaining above freezing during daytime and slightly below freezing overnight. The snowpack has lost over 2 inches since yesterday and turning the surface layer wet and sticky. Alpine areas are mostly unaffected and still offer some nice snow conditions for some fun-packed sledding. The weather forecast predicts a bit more snow over the weekend before temperatures are expected to climb well above freezing for a while.
Expect muddy, slushy, slippery trail conditions before reaching the sledding areas.

The Shuswap sledding trail maps as well as the mountain cabins and parking map are now finalized and online. The Crowfoot trail map might follow soon.
