Whistler Mountain opens a week early due to heavy snowfall
An intense storm that dropped more than 80cms of snow on Whistler Blackcomb earlier this week has prompted mountain managers to open Whistler Mountain almost a week early.
Whistler Mountain will open Saturday, Nov. 17, 2007 (almost a week early) while Blackcomb Mountain will open as planned on Thursday, Nov. 22.
The combined natural snowfall and snowmaking efforts have allowed for the early opening on Whistler Mountain that skiers and riders have been hoping for.
Weather forecasters are predicting that this is only the beginning of a period of snowy, stormy weather for the mountain.
Bestskiweather.com is reporting low pressure over the Gulf of Alaska meaning plenty of cold and more snow for Whistler into next week.
Whistler Mountain will open on Saturday with access from the Whistler Village and Creekside base areas. The Whistler Village Gondola, Creekside Gondola, the Emerald Express, Franz’s Chair and the Big Red Express are all scheduled to open.
