Winter is here with Whistler Mountain officially opening a week early on November 19th 2015.
With snow falling in the valley as we speak Whistler and Blackcomb mountains have been seeing storm after storm drop white fluffy snow on the peaks for the last 3 weeks.
“Since November 1, we have received 98cm (38.5in) of natural snow as measured at our Pig Alley weather station on Whistler Mountain and we have another 45cm (18in) to 75cm (29.5in) in the forecast at higher elevations over the next few days,” says Doug MacFarlane, Director of Mountain Operations at Whistler Blackcomb. “
Whistler expects to have five lifts running, including the Whistler Village Gondola, the Creekside Gondola, Emerald Express, Big Red Express and Franz’s Chair and Blackcomb Mountain will open as scheduled on Nov 26th 2015. More snow is in the forecast for the next 2 weeks so wax your board and get ready.
