NORTH VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – With over a metre of new snow in the past 5 days, Mt. Seymour has decided to extend their ski season by another week–to Sunday, April 18th. The other local mountains are also reporting their best conditions of the season.
Mt. Seymour is reporting 122 centimetres of new snow. It will end up being one of their longest seasons on record, as early season snow allowed them to open early, on November 20th. Of course, the mid-winter El Nino negatively impacted conditions at all the North Shore mountains, especially during the Olympics.
Whistler Blackcomb already decided to keep Whistler Mountain open an extra week, until April 25th. Blackcomb will be open until the end of May.
Mount Baker reports over 5 feet of snow in the past week and another storm later this week is forecast to bring another foot or more of fresh snow. Mount Baker is open all of this week, then just Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays until April 25th.
