Update Sun Nov 9 @ 6 pm: We’ve received 7 cm so far in Canmore and the snowfall warning is still in effect for Canmore, Kananaskis, and Banff.
Snowfall warning in effect for:
- Banff Nat. Park near Banff
- Banff Nat. Park near Lake Louise
- Yoho Nat. Park
- Kootenay Nat. Park
The weather forecast predicts: Snowfall, with total amounts of 10 to 20 cm is expected. Heavy snow today and tonight in mountains.
Sunday at 7:15 a.m. in Canmore we’ve received only a dusting of snow so far. Be careful when you step foot outside, as there was some freezing rain pre-snow. The temperature is -5°C and dropping.
It appears from the forecasts that we can expect this snowfall to be widespread, so all of our favourite ski areas should get it. Whether it will be enough to start grooming, I guess we’ll have to wait and see. The Lake Louise webcam looks very promising. On a day like this, my webcams page gets a lot of hits.
Although I’m not thrilled by several days of Arctic deep freeze which will follow the snow, the other side of that coin is that the snow will stay around, and the Canmore Nordic Centre will be making snow. Already the snow guns are going full blast.
I came across this face protection tape on Twitter. Frost Tape. Has anyone used it? Where is it available?
