It’s Winter Time In Whistler

It’s Winter Time In Whistler

Tomorrow, Blackcomb mountain joins her sister Whistler as being open; both mountains are now officially open for skiing and shredding for the season! Whistler Mountain opened 2 weeks early this year, and after a successful start to the season, the second mountain is ready to all. Blackcomb opened with seven lifts, including the great PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola. The Whistler Blackcomb Terrain Park crew was complete and ready to ride as well.

"We are extremely excited to get guests up on both mountains and are proud of the hard work our operations teams have been putting into our opening days," said Doug MacFarlene, Mountain Manager at Whistler Blackcomb, prior to opening.  "We've been focusing on our snowmaking to help out Mother Nature and with our recent snowmaking upgrades on Blackcomb things are looking really good.  Again we would like to remind guests it is still early season, and it is important to obey signage and ski and ride on open runs only."
