The next month
Daily forecasts will start in May. Long range outlook looking at the lead up to Season 2017 will be published in April. Here's to a big 2017.


This will be the final daily forecast for Season 2016. A season that has been a rollercoaster with a later start, some heavy snowfalls but also unfortunately some big rain events that washed away a lot of snow. As far as snowfalls go, this would be one of the biggest years for natural snow, but we never really reached any huge depth due to the consistent rain that seemed to turn up every time we had a dump. All in all a pretty decent season and there will be plenty of snow in the mountains for anyone looking for some backcountry action or just snow play.

I'll be keeping any eye on Japan, USA and Canada and posting updates on the Snowatch Facebook page throughout the off season and will also update the snowatch cam pages for the US, Canada, Japan and Europe so be sure to check those out.

I hope I have been able to help some of you in planning trips to the mountains and look forward to doing it all again next season. If you have any feedback please feel free to send through as I'm always looking to improve things on Snowatch.
