CMH Heli-Skiing Guides Check out the Revelstoke Ski Conditions

CMH Heli-Skiing Guides took to the mountains at the Monashee Lodge just north of Revelstoke, BC on Friday, November 25. According to Thia and the team there, snow conditions are "excellent with 260cm of settled snowpack at treeline and 160cm at the pick ups at 1000m".  Late January conditions in late November?   La Nina, we love you.  Sorry Colorado, sorry Europe, but the weather report for the Monashees shows more snow coming in the next 48 hrs. Even local Banff ski areas are happy with the resort snowpack: 108 cm at Sunshine Village and 113cm at Lake Louise where the World Cup race was held over the weekend.  Revelstoke Mountain Resort is reporting a base of 142cm and will be open for skiing and riding this weekend. 

But back to the Monashees where Thia and Paul are grinning ear to ear.  After a great day of skiing in Soards Creek on Saturday, the guides sent in a handful of photos.  Here are a few to get you going:
