Canada winter forecast: Abundant snow for skiing

Snowfall along the Coast Range in British Columbia will be typical for an average winter

A map from Accuweather shows the North Thompson Valley to be close to the boundary between near normal and above normal snowfall this winter.

STATE COLLEGE, PA – AccuWeather.com reports the winter of 2013 and 2014 will bring plenty of snow to the winter sports resorts in both the West and East of Canada, though the West will get off to a much quicker start as cold air gets established during November and December from the Rockies to the central Prairies.

Despite the milder temperatures during December and January, an active storm track will bring plenty of snow opportunities to ski country in eastern Canada, while mixed precipitation will be more common over southern Ontario.

The West Coast, including Vancouver, will have a changeable winter with drier-than-normal conditions for December before more typical winter storminess returns in January.

Temperatures will average close to normal for the first half of the winter then trend above normal for the second half of the season.

Snowfall along the Coast Range in British Columbia will be typical for an average winter with the greatest potential for heavy snowfall coming in January and early February.

Below: According to an Accuweather map, the North Thompson Valley is close to the boundary between near normal and below normal temperatures this winter.
