Having lived in the Comox vally for a few years and also being an active skier I've noticed this Camera strangly will go out of service when it is foggy down to the base, or when it is raining?? Hmm very odd, That's ok though.. they have given me a few tickets for another day b/c the conditions were not skiable.

I notice there is new snow this morning on the sunshine (Banff) snow camera.. ( some what relevant b/c I move to Calgary today! I feel a season's pass comming on!

This site seems to be one of the best from all I've seen. Anyone paid for membership? Is it really worth the try? How much more details do you get?

Skate, maybe I am not doing the proper search but find these report lacking of coast mountains information; I have received the reports for a month now and it is mostly in the Rockies, I didn't even get the report of Sept 21 for the coast. The only update I had from the coast was for Smithers on Monday.

Anyone can help with this?

Its nice to know snow conditions around town but its also nice to know how the info is collected.

For instance Exscape posted a link to current conditions for Manning park, but if you read the fine print its for Princeton airport a difference of 700 m elevation, this only one example.

Also if you start mixing recording techniques between ski resorts and weather stations you may get 2 very different pictures, obviously ski resorts are going to tell the story their way.

In my opinion Whistler report and ALPINE forecast are Awesome and Seymour is the only local mountain to pay E.C. for a specialized alpine report!! Funny since they are the cheapest and probably make the least. Drew may be able to offer up some relevant links snow pillow sites.



Freezing level Forecast for YVR for 4 days number 14

Now hope for snow and ill hope for ice!!

If you are going into the Backcountry in Sea to Sky corridor then you can check to see visability and how low the snow is by checking the web cam in Squamish. It is for the spit for kiting an windsurfing but if you go to www.skypilotkiteboarding.com and click squamish web cam you can select preset on Diamond Head to check....

My friend just got this site up and running.

www.snowflix.com

A great place to check out all the ski and snowboard videos of all kinds, as well as add your own content.

Click on the snow reports tab and you can scroll the snow reports from around the world, setup your favourites to check back often. Also blogs and latest events centered out of the lower mainlaind.

Here's a link to a page from our website with short cuts to some of the sites. I'll add some of the ones on this thread! Thanks!

http://www.mapitfirst.ca/default.asp?id=127

There are some weather stations in Banff and Revelstoke that have hour by hour up-dates. I I have those somewhere, I'll dig them up later...very cool (when they're working)
