Powder alert Sunshine Village to kick off the Family Day long weekend with an abundance of new snow February 12, 2014 Grab your powder skis and get out to the mountains-- It’s snowing at Sunshine Village, and up to 15 cm of powder is expected over the next two days. With 12 cm falling on the resort in the last 24 hours and a snow pack sitting at 150 cm (4 ft, 11in), all this white stuff has set the stage for some incredible conditions heading into the long weekend. “Sunshine Village is heading into what is historically known as the powder season, so this snow system is a definite precursor for what is to come,” says Tanya Otis, Manager of Communications at Sunshine Village Ski Resort. The snowfall over the next few days brings with it much anticipated mild temperatures and lays the groundwork for incredible skiing and riding for the whole family, solidifying the resort’s dominance in offering up Canada’s Best Snow.
