Whistler Blackcomb ready for opening
If everything falls into place (including the snow), Whistler Blackcomb is set to open Friday, Nov. 21. You can check their website for weather and snow info, plus any updates about the opening day.
Coming up next is the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola launch on Dec. 12. Find out more about it here.
And check out the Whistler Blackcomb Snowcast, presented by TELUS. In episode one, hear some favourite excuses used when calling in sick on a powder day.
There are plenty of good packages for getaways this winter, like staying two nights and getting the third free. Check out the Whistler website for cool deals.
The tour begins at the CPR Steamship Terminal Building, located across the street from the BC Parliament Buildings pictured here. ©SueFrause...
