The 16 days of Opening Day (almost better than Christmas): Day 1 - Opening Eve

The 16 days of Opening Day (almost better than Christmas): Day 1 - Opening Eve

On the 1st day of Opening Day, my true love gave to me....pure, utter, unadulterated excitement!

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!

With Whistler Mountain opening early, the buzz around the village has been electrifying. Add in a whole bunch of fresh snow, and all of the locals are absolutely giddy!

Blackcomb Mountain is still scheduled to open TOMORROW, Thursday, November 22nd.

Let's round out this list!


Exploring the mountain!
Map out your wonders. Get stoked. Have an amazing season!

It's that time of year again, where there's one main thing on most people's minds. And that's which run should I ride next? With an endless choice of runs to choose from, and a seemingly endless supply of snow for the next 6-7 months, you'll have plenty of time to hit your favourites, some hidden gems, some that you've only ever heard about, or perhaps this is your first time on the mountain, and pretty much EVERYTHING is left to be explored!.

Which ever it is, the start of the year so far has been incredible, and leads me to believe that we're in for one heck of a snowy year.
I'm secretly wishing for each month to be comparable to last March, where we got 14 feet of snow throughout the month. 14 feet! Every day was a fresh powder day!
Perhaps it's a pipe dream to wish for that every month, but one can hold out hope, no?

In the mean time, I'll keep dancing my snow dance for Mother Nature, and try to convince her to send it all this way again!
