Sunshine Village Ski & Snowboard Resort is smiling after this latest blast of winter and says it is on track to break their total snowfall record set back in 1999.
Officials say the accumulation over the last few days is the fifth biggest snowfall in 40 years.
In the past five days the ski hill has received 123 cm of snow bringing the total this season to 773 cm.
Officials say conditions are phenomenal for those who like skiing in waist-deep powder.
The resort's snowfall record for March may also be broken this year.
In March 2011 the ski hill received a record, 208 cm of snow and officials say the first few days of the month have already produced over half that amount.
