Latest Shuswap News, Comments, and Updates

Shuswap Lake: February 25, 2021  

Snowfall all night and into the morning accumulated to 9.5 cm (3 3/4in) of wet snow at lake altitude. Most of it has already melted down during the day and roads and highways cleaned up quickly in the morning. The lake surface water temperatures has started to drop slightly as cold snow melt water is discharging into rivers and lake. There is a chance of new snowfall for tonight before the weather gets nicer for the weekend.

Mountain Snowpack: March 03, 2021  

Mountain daytime temperatures have once again warmed up a bit more. Park Mtn and Celista Mtn have risen above freezing today, whereas Silver Star Mtn and the Hunters Range came very close to follow. Thursday should be even warmer with temperatures reaching above freezing on all Shuswap mountains up to 1,800 m. However, the Shuswap alpine regions will remain below freezing for at least 2 or more weeks. The mountains should see some sunny periods again but clouds will be coming back late evening and night, carrying a slight chance of some overnight flurries or light snowfall in higher elevations.

COVID Situation: February 21, 2021  

While the Canada-wide COVID situation seems to be improving, BC infections and deaths remain fairly high at this point in time. Alberta seems to be improving quickly and new case counts have been noticeably lower than those in BC. The Shuswap area counts have also slightly dropped into 15 to 30 new cases per day. COVID mutations have also been discovered in BC and might be spreading around further over the next few weeks. Don't forget to wear your facemask before entering local stores and offices.
BC does not report new cases during weekends; therefore, latest case counts will not be available until Monday evening.

Shuswap Avalanche Danger Rating
Warm temperatures and sunshine will elevate avalanche conditions across the region. Stick to low angle shaded terrain. Conditions in the northern end of the region (e.g. Clemina) are extra concerning due to a weaker snowpack structure.
