Jeremy Derksen from Snow Seekers has continued his research on Marmot Basin's awesome snow conditions, with some nautical musings:

Been sailing for near 100 days, battered from port to port. Murmurs of El Nino everywhere. I’ve steered these straits before. One minute it’s powder reports; the next, the common folk of Edmonton are raking leaves at plus 10 C. Times like these, tropical fever sets in. When the lawn is turning green, it’s easy to forget that just a couple hundred nautical miles west, the great white sea (that’s snow, for you flatlanders) roils and churns...
 
Last season, a Bermuda Triangle effect hovered around Marmot, drawing in powder and powder lovers to its snowy island. And another ski season later - the effect is still… uh… in effect.
With its high elevation, long season, cooler climate and northern latitude, Marmot enjoys a combination of good snow conditions and sunny days that stretch late into the spring. The hill stays open until the first weekend of May...
 
Snow conditions are one good reason to ski Marmot this spring, but there are others. For one, Marmot’s northern latitude positions it for long, sunny spring days.
After charging hard all day, there’s nothing like peeling back a few layers and soaking in that alpine warmth under a bluebird sky. The mood on the hill as the temps climb and the snow softens is an experience snow sailors seek and bask in....
 
For my crew and me, with alternating snow and sun to prime the slopes, we felt as if we really were pirates set loose in port. If you haven’t been to sea, you haven’t lived and that’s true for me - I’ll take a snow storm on the white seas over a cozy tropical berth any day."
