Snow Report Winter 2020/21
This winter, things will be a little different
SEPTEMBER 24, 2020 • WHAT'S NEW updated October 11
We understand you may have questions and concerns regarding your plans for the coming winter season. During these uncertain times and constant changes due to Covid-19, we like to help you find the right information, for you to be as informed as you can when you book with us. Covid-19 protocols are being updated regularly, so they may change. One thing we can wholeheartedly guarantee, the resorts and so are we, have and are taking measures to keep everyone safe and to minimize any risk and exposure.
As a long time member of Whitewater Ski Resort, we are in regular contact with the resort. Whitewater (WH2O) is the go-to-resort for most of our guests. WH2O is up the road from our Lodge, a short 20 min. drive from door to lift. Over 623 metres/2044 ft of steeps, deeps, chutes, bowls, and glades are all there, beneath the ski resort's majestic Ymir Peak. Together with its impressive snowpack - annual snowfall of 12 meters/40 ft -, boundless backcountry terrain and its laid-back familial atmosphere, some do not want to ski anywhere else.
Tentative Opening Date to the public: December 18th
Whitewater is planning to open on Friday, December 11th (conditions permitting) for daily operations to Season Passholders only. Something slightly different this season is that the resort will open, only if confident and if Silver King, Summit, and the Hummer handle-tow can safely open. As in previous years, they are tentatively planning to open the Glory Chair one week later on Friday, December 18th. All of this is conditions permitting.
Latest news on Lift Ticket Products (22nd Sept.) - At this time Whitewater is planning on pre-purchased online ticket sales only. This means no walk-up ticket sales. In addition to this, Whitewater has decided to not offer any discount lift products at this time. This means - at this time - we will not be selling Local Legends Cards or Multi-day tickets. This also means that the only reciprocals we will be offering are the new Whitewater’s Extended Family. Aligning with many other BC resorts we won’t be offering any 25% off resort reciprocals, according to Whitewater.
What does this mean for your stay with us?
- Right now, it is not known yet if we are able to offer our Logden Lodge Ski & Stay package, flexible use of discounted tickets, the same way as previous years.
- Whitewater plans to have their new website with online tickets purchase options up and running in November. Guests who already booked with us, will be able to purchase tickets before sales are open to the public.
- There will be a cap on the resort capacity, communicated via social media and a digital signage at the bottom of the road. Whitewater is considering they may carry over your ticket to the next day, if at arrival you can not find a parking space. However it will be your responsibly to arrive at the resort as early as possible (especially on a powder day!).
Guests who stay with us longer than a few nights like to ski at least a day at Red Mountain Resort as well. RED is a bit further out but very accessible at an hours drive (75km), located just outside the charming town of Rossland. With more than 3,850 skiable acres, 119 runs, 890 meters/2919 ft of vertical terrain serviced by 8 total lifts, and an annual snowfall peaks out on average at 7+ meters/25 ft, all in all reason to enjoy a day at this impressive resort as well.
Tentative Opening Date: December 12th
Face coverings required at both resorts.
As in previous years, we will do everything we can to make your stay as pleasant as possible. We will keep you informed of any changes as soon as we learn them, but please keep yourselves updated as well with the applicable Covid-19 protocols:
