SUMMER of 2022.

This page serves to aggregate many sources of relevant weather data and information found on line and is in constant development. We hope that the information here serves the outdoor sports community in helping make better decisions about their outdoor activities.

Although this page is geo-specific to Red and Granite Mountains near Rossland, BC, many of the tools apply to much of the Pacific North West.

For more information about weather in general, see weather and meteorology. And, for discussions about the bigger issue for our planet, see climate.

Ullr's Stormcast

Welcome to Summer! It’s been a long and cool spring leading up to here and there is still some skiing up high, above 6000 feet. We have seen fresh snow in those upper elevations very recently but the sun is high in the sky and the remaining snow pack is rapidly disappearing. But don’t despair, winter will come again! In the meantime, enjoy your summer activities.

Before you go, review the CAA Avalanche Forecast !!!
