Love Snow – La Niña & Ullr may just bring a very early opening to Whistler Blackcomb


Love Snow at Whistler Blackcomb

The official Opening Day for Whistler Blackcomb is scheduled for November 24, but if Mother Nature continues to deliver there could be the possibility open earlier. We also know that historically the snow team at WB will be working around the clock to be one of the first if not the first mountain resort to open in North America.

Whistler Blackcomb reported they had received overed 75cm with last week’s storm and a lot more in the future forecast.

“It is starting to feel like winter right now with 55 centimeters of snow sitting at our mid mountain Pig Alley weather station located at 1650 meters on Whistler Mountain, and snowfall continuing with another 25 centimeters forecasted in the alpine by Saturday morning,” reports Whistler Blackcomb’s Public Relations office. Whistler Blackcomb goes on to say, “Although all this early snowfall has skiers and snowboarders amped for the upcoming season, we are reminding all guests that for your own safety access to our mountains is not permitted until opening day as our operations teams are working extremely hard right now to get Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains ready and safe for opening.”

So are you a betting person? Do you Love Snow? What day do you think Whistler Mountain will open for early skiing? First person to guess correctly will win a pair of  Snowball25 tickets to Whistler Pride’s 25th anniversary main event with international DJ/Producers The CUBE GUYS of Sleeping Giant Music
