Whistler to Open this Friday for Skiing & Riding

Whistler Blackcomb has recently announced that Whistler Mountain will be opening this Friday November 18th! Opening day has come 6 days early!  Blackcomb Mountain will be opening on November 24th.

This is exciting news for all skiers and boarders who are anticipating the start of the season.  Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains have received more snow over the weekend.  The forecast is calling for another storm cycle to hit the mountains on Wednesday.  This will bring a predicted 35 cms of white gold to the mountains before opening on Friday!  The early season ski  conditions are going to be phenomenal!

In addition to all the snow that Ullr has been bringing, the Whistler/Blackcomb snowmaking department have been very busy.  The snowmaking team has turned over 50 million gallons of water into snow so far this season.

Whistler Mountain will open at 8:30am and close at 3pm.  You can upload from the Creekside Gondola and the Whistler Village Gondola.  Lifts opening will be Emerald Express, Big Red Express, and Franz's Chair.
