There are a few last minute deals on offer, as well as the latest airfare specials for travel this season to USA, Canada and Japan, which all end 27 February. So if you are still thinking about it – act now!
In the meantime, here’s a taste of what’s happening as at 16th Feb 2012

An impressive snow storm moved into Colorado Ski Country USA leaving double digit snow totals at many resorts. 40+ cms of fresh snow fell in Snowmass & Buttermilk & 35 cms of fresh snow also fell in Aspen Mountain & Aspen Highlands.
Plus More Snow is expected in Colorado later this week along with bluebird skies & Deep powder conditions.
18 January 2011 : Winter Park received 19 cms of fresh snow in 24 hours and so did all the other Major ski Resorts in Colorado. Plus there is more snow on the way for the week and the weekend.
Long range forecast predicts some significant snow on Friday, but mainly in the weekend of 20-22 Jan. This storm could be big and may affect all of Colorado with heavy snow as it passes slowly through (mainly Sunday/Monday).
Here is a snow update and the video sent by Colin Brost from Tourism Sun Peaks
Well I was lucky enough that my wife woke me up early yesterday and told me, “It’s still snowing, you better get out there!”. I quickly dressed and headed out the door, my neighbour was digging her car out of the snow and I told her, “There’s no friends on a powder day!” and left her behind. I started on Mt. Morrisey expecting to be alone as it’s generally the quieter of the three mountains however word had spread about the 30+ cm overnight so unfortunately for a spoiled local, there were others on my mountain.
I jumped over to Tod Mountain to get up into the Alpine and was greeted as a thin layer of cloud burnt off revealing a COMPLETELY blue bird day. I’ve lived in Sun Peaks for 4 years now and this was arguably the best day skiing I have ever had…ever. I’m not joking when I tell you I was screamin’ like a school girl as dry powder was literally choking me as if flew over my head.
For the lucky ones that were in Sun Peaks Resort, we share a special day and memory. For those that are coming soon, I look forward to hopefully experiencing it again with you. For those that are heading somewhere else…”You have no idea! But we can take care of that.”
Here is a video of one of the best ski days I’ve ever had…anywhere….ever. We have snow, deep, white, dry, fluffy snow!
For those that have been or are about to head up to the Northern Hemisphere skiing, the weather Gods certainly have blessed you with an unforgettable ski holiday with heaps of that lovely white fluffy stuff – so enjoy!
If you haven’t made plans or booked yet – it’s still not too late! There are still lots of ‘last minute Larry’s’ calling us to book their skiing holiday for this season!
In the meantime, here’s a taste of what’s happening as at 9th January 2012
Update from 5th December – check out the bases at the North American Ski resorts already! Lots of snowfall predicted so this is only the start! If you’re up there or about to head up there, do send us a note to tell us all about it!
