Whistler/Blackcomb conditions?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I've got a buddy heading up there next week and was wondering how the snow is? Any big dumps lately? Any in the forecast?

With luck, the system coming in this week will bring some much needed snow. The scary thing is that freezing levels are forecast to be high; 1500 to 1800m. This would mean rain on all but the top 1/3 to 1/4 of the hill. For the last couple weeks it has been too warm for the snow guns to operate, and the base is decreasing. Current reported mid-mountain depth is 132cm, but I think there is some optimism there.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the early season (now moving into the not-so-early season) hasn't been much fun.

Looks like Whistler has gotten 12+ inches the past day or two, and expecting another 10+ inches tonight.

I'm going a week from Sat., so conditions should be nice.

Anyone in the area, please give an unofficial update...

FYI, whilst in Whistler a good snow infoline to call is 604 938 7690. Updated at around 6am and 2pm, found it very useful.

Whistler has received almost 2 ft. in the last few days.
