“The mountain is on track for another record setting year with a snow base of 185 cm (6.1 feet), that’s the highest snow base for this time of year compared to the last ten years. It’s also 50 cm (1.6 feet) more snow than what our base was last year at this time,” says Stuart Rempel, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Whistler Blackcomb. “This really drives home our point that Whistler Blackcomb offers some of the most consistent and reliable snow to our guests compared to any other resort in North America.”
On Saturday, Whistler Blackcomb is expecting to open Blackcomb Mountain’s alpine for the first time this season, weather permitting. This will make 5,280 vertical feet and over 6,000 acres of skiable terrain accessible to guests.
