It’s a pow day for SilverStar.
The mountain resort received five centimetres overnight Sunday and that number has nearly doubled as the white stuff continues to fall.
“The snow has really been coming down all day up here, it’s a winter wonderland,” said Chantelle Deacon, SilverStar’s communications manager. “The forecast is calling for upwards of 20 cm over the next couple days, which means we might be breaking a 200 cm snow base very soon!”
Vernon’s resort currently boasts a 192 cm alpine base.
According to Environment Canada, a long period of snowfall with total amounts of 15 to 25 cm is expected.
“We will see snow developing on Monday when the next system moves onshore,” the resort states. “This slow-moving next low will crawl across the B.C. Interior, bringing plenty of snow to the resort Monday night and into Tuesday.
“Monday’s daytime freezing levels will be near the valley base with light to moderate westerlies or southwesterlies. Snow will ease off Wednesday with partial clearing in the afternoon.”
