Same here in Alberta, as usual for April. On our 18 km ski tour yesterday in Kananaskis and a brief corner of Banff NP, we looped through 2 valleys, via 3 passes, with 2 descents offering some pretty good powder turns along the way.
Below- a short bootpack was required in one spot- it's been a low snow winter here.

The weather closed in and the winds picked up as we prepared to descend from the first pass of the day. Our next pass is above yellow jacket's head, after the descent into the valley that separates the two passes.

With the stormy weather, the camera was safely stowed away for the remainder of the trip.

Jeez, I can't believe that is your backyard....

Just got back from a wonderful weekend cross country skiing at Stokely Creek Lodge in the beautiful Algoma Highlands region of Ontario just north of Sault Ste. Marie. ~100 km of groomed trails spread out over 12,000 acres of hills, lakes, and streams with great snow because of its proximity to Lake Superior. Love this place!

At Hang Gliders Lookout - you can see Lake Superior off in the distance

Perfect snow conditions and great weather, last week at Campbell Icefield backcountry ski lodge in the Canadian Rockies, NE of Golden B.C.

Powder skiing conditions were flawless!

Gaining the High Col above the icefield. The white pyramid is Mount Freshfield.

But that just meant more powder skiing!

Nothing better than a wood fired sauna at day's end.

You beat me to it! Rick just took photos of 2 different Witch Hazels today. Winter blooming shrubs, amazing fragrance, love those shrubs.
Is this the Arnold Promise?
No snow on ours.
Yes, it's Arnold Promise. It started blooming very early this year, around February 1st. We've had this one for years and like it so much we recently planted two more. It's fun to see the yellow poking out through the snow right now!
