Due to cool temperatures, impressive snowmaking and natural snowfall Whistler mountain will once again be opening early this year. With the opening day now taking place on Saturday, November 16, Whistler will be opening an astonishing thirteen days in advance of its original American Thanksgiving opening on Thursday, November 28.
Eager skiers and snowboarders will be able to upload from either the Whistler Village Gondola or the Creekside Gondola, and have the option of riding five operating lifts on the Whistler mountain. Park enthusiasts will also be able to make use of a few rail features at the top of Emerald chair.
Early season conditions will apply, especially off piste. Skiers and snowboarders should take note of all mountain signage, and stick to open runs within the operational area marked by Temporary Boundary signage.
Blackcomb mountain, as well as the Peak 2 Peak Gondola will open on the original American Thanksgiving Thursday, November 28.
