Looking for a chase route through the sparwood to banff regions of BC. Eastern regions of the rockies would be optimum. March 6th untill it stops puking powder is my time frame.

Models show some cold air moving in late this month and early March. Big Sky has been missed on several storms this year but things look optimistic for you currently. It’s still a bit far out for accuracy but my confidence is decent right now. Please ping us back on a new question in 3-5 days.
6 days and counting before we leave the Canadian prairies for the interior of BC. Mostly fernie. I see that forcasts are showing major precipitation for the area but in the form of plus temps and rain….This may suck for a good POW chase..Thoughts???
Are you in the BC area? Snow is going to pick up this week especially Friday/Saturday with colder temps. I think you will score!
