The 16 days of Opening Day (almost better than Christmas): Day 5 - Unofficial Official Opening Day
On the 5th day of Opening day, my true love gave to me....an early opening!
As Whistler and Whistlerites gear up
for the start of another amazing season, in the 16 days leading up
to Opening Day, I'm going to give you 16 different ideas of some
awesome things to do this winter season!
We're less than a week away to the "Official" Opening Day. However, the unofficial "Official" Opening Day is TODAY (Saturday Nov. 17th). The Whistler Alpine will be open, and you can bet your bottom dollar you will see nothing but smiles all day. In fact smiles all day, every day for the next 6-7 months.
Blackcomb Mountain is still scheduled to open November 22nd.
Back to the List we go!
WHISTLER MOUNTAIN UNOFFICIAL OFFICIAL OPENING DAY!
First tracks of the season have been laid out as of 8.30 this morning on what will surely become another epic year!
It's been raining in the village since
last night, yet there have been a few die-hards camping out since
yesterday afternoon (see picture below) to ensure they're first in
line, and get the first lines on the snow this season. Impressive
feat considering how soggy they must have gotten over night.
On the upside, the forecast is calling for a wholllllleeeee lot of snow over the next 5-6 days. Upwards of 160+ cm's in the Alpine (for you folks not wanting to do math on a Saturday, that's nearly 5.5 feet of white gold). Jealous yet?
Needless to say, the season is starting off well!
