Pre Christmas Super Storm
It was the week before Christmas last December and Island Lake had a massive snow storm hit. A warm and wet system from the South collided with a cold front the North. The 2 system stalled over Fernie and Island Lake for a week. The result was 2 metres of snow or about 6 1/2 feet of powder snow in 6 days. It was cold, dry champagne powder and those that experienced it are still dreaming about it.
