Now I consider myself to know quite a lot about ski areas all over North
America, its kind of like a hobby to know every ski areas verticle drop and
snowfall, ect....but I don't even know if I've ever heard of Castle; the
name does not ring a bell!  And the fact that it got #8 in snow quality in
Skiing Mag, has me wondering even more. This isn't a new mountain or a
mountain that changed its name is it?  Where's it located; near Fortress or
interior B.C. with Sun Peaks and Big White?

Yeah with a minor El Nino who knows what will happen.  Good southern storm
track out west...'97-'98 basted Tahoe to Utah in powder, but that was
pretty damn strong El Nino.
