The snow has started to fly at Whistler Blackcomb with over 40 cm (16 inches) of snow falling just in the last few days and more expected in the forecast. With the countdown on to opening day (November 27) this is exciting news! And with the new PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola opening on Dec. 12, we can't wait for the season to officially kick off.

On Wednesday a few very lucky people got to test out the snow on Blackcomb Mountain for a few turns. Check out some photos.
