Thursday was good. Blackcomb scraped clean, but Whistler was decent. Friday was a bit more scrappy. But, they opened Peak & Harmony, along with Emerald, Big Red, Franz, and the Gondola. So, good amount of stuff open.
Sat was good, due to some snow overnight. Pretty nice. Sunday was even better. More snow, the inversion finally fully collapsed and the temps went down to -9 c, so they started blowing snow. And sunday had snow in the village, which was mentally a good change. Looks like they might get dumped on today or tomorrow, but still some question whether BC or Washington will get the storm track.
they did have a bit of lift troubles. Harmony had some problems, along with Emerald, and the Whistler gondola was dead on Saturday - problems in the upper drive, but they got it fixed for Sunday.
