Big White, Kelowna, BC Canada – Great January and February snowfall is setting up to break season records at Big White
Now approaching mid February 2013, Big White Ski Resort’s traditional consistent snow fall has not disappointed and this season is looking like it might just break records.
Following an outstanding December that saw 215 cm of snow accumulation for the month, the most for a December in 14 seasons, January then delivered 176 cm accumulation. Based on long term snow records the resort normally averages 143 cm each January.
February is already off to a good start recording 37 cm in the first 10 days, whereas the February average is 90 cm.
Following consistent falls in November, December, January and the first 10 days of February the 12-13 season accumulation is already 545 cm. This compares very favourably with the historical accumulation average for November to January( inclusive) of 409 cm.
If historical snow fall averages are achieved for the balance of this season, Big White Ski Resort could see the full season accumulation peak close to 800 cm.
These results however are not surprising considering the long term historical snowfall records the mountain is renowned for.
The snowfall and snow base records from the last 30 seasons clearly illustrate why the mountain is called Big White and reinforces why this resort, near Kelowna BC, Canada, has earned such an enviable reputation for reliable snow, every season, 2012-13 is now looking to exceed that very comfortably.
