The official resort website has all the stats set out: http://www.whistler-blackcomb.com/we...tats/index.asp
January is the coldest month, but even then the temp ranges each day between -12 to -5 Celsius, or 11 to 23 Farenheit, at alpine levels. Thanks to the low altitude and maritime climate, the temperature is much more moderate than, say, the Rockies.
They hope to break records in terms of December snowfalls (12 feet total, 2 metre base), and in addition January is a relatively quiet period between the Christmas-New Year and February peaks, so it should be an excellent time to go.
Now if only it would snow in France...
