Here's the site I use to check snowfall, it only reports what the hills report, so take it with a grain of salt. It is a good way to have all the data in one place though...

Nice one, thanks. Where are you seeing if they are ahead of their norm or reaching record levels or is it just putting different bits of info together?

Speaking of taking hill reports with a grain of salt, have been impressed with Whistler - if anything they underestimate. Fact the measurements are at mid mountain and there can be a lot less there than up top helps.

THey need to average out for the rain falling at the base!

Same story out this way although we have not hit the snowiest part of the year yet. We have been getting bits and pieces but nothing crazy.

I think Kicking Horse is hurting. They have had as much snow as sunshine!

I hardly even look at the WhistlerBlackcomb snow forecast, it's utter bullshit pretty much every time.

When you say that...do you mean that the claimed 'new snow' they have listed on the WB main page is exaggerated?

I've found they, if anything, understate it.

Can't speak for whistler themselves, but I think in general it's tough to give a single number to a resort as large as Whistler, or any of the multi-thousand acre, 3000+ vertical foot resorts. Elevation, wind, temp, etc. have such an effect on snow that even at a small resort 4" at the bottom could be 1 foot up top, and higher in certain areas.
