October 25, 2020: Shuswap Update
Early winter weather still hangs over the Shuswap. Daytime temperatures remain in the single digits and drop to freezing overnight. The snowline has come down significantly and has almost been touching the lake for the past 2 days. Snow in the mountains has accumulated to roughly 3 feet already, exceeding the October snowpack of the past 4 years by nearly a foot. With mountain temperatures now as low as -13C and more snow in the near forecast, this year's winter sport season might start early and could even last a month longer than usual. Check out our winter dashboard for daily up-to-date snowpack and weather information.
Starting with this winter, will also monitor the snow conditions at most of the popular local snowmobile trails this season. We are currently compiling a list of popular winter trails, locations and driving directions, parking areas, etc and should have those information sheets online by early November.
COVID-19 infections are increasing again. Mostly affected are the more densely populated areas of BC (foremost the Vancouver and Fraser regions), whereas the Shuswap continues to remain a fairly safe place to be. Be aware that wearing a face mask is still required to enter shopping malls, large stores, and many public and business offices. Best keep a few face masks in your car - so you have it on hand when needed.
Latest case counts are available on and are updated every evening.
