Why does tanner hall need to know where the snow is? By the mere fact of asking this question in this forum; you must not be the real tanner hall

I got skunked at wolf creek already once this season. It's even hit or miss down there with the high temps we've been having

I guess like anywhere, you gotta time it right. I also forgot Powder King, they've had it really good too. Since La Nina usually means a more northerly jet stream / storm track (ie: BC) everything seems about normal right now.
-- Edit --
Check out the BC pillow data to get an idea of snow depths across the province: http://bcrfc.env.gov.bc.ca/data/asp/realtime/index.htm
Here's the stations nearest the powder hills...
Pine Pass = Powder King
Morrissey Ridge = Fernie
Redfish Creek = Whitewater
Mount Revelstoke = Revelstoke
Squamish River = Whistler
Wolf River = Mt. Washington
Tsai Creek = Shames (800mm SWE!!)

I'm not in BC right now (out east in Quebec for this winter) but I always refer to the reports from the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides for first hand, trustworthy, field trip reports: Mountain Conditions Reports
You can also check the Avy Bulletins, which contain some snowpack data too: Parks Canada - Public Avalanche Information
