Whistler is open early this year!

Woooo! Skiing and snowboarding season opens early this year :-)

http://www.whistlerblackcomb.com/index.htm  looking forward to hit the slopes. Do you think that opening early will make an effect this year? Will there be an increase in the number of tourists?

An absurd amount of snow has fallen so far up there.  Unlike the other ski areas near Vancouver and in Washington State - the majority of our mountain got nothing but snow - with only rain at the bottom 1/3 of the ski area for about 24 hours. 
We've already hit a record snowpack for the month of November (and there's still another 2 weeks to go!)  As far as snowfall goes, we're on pace to get the cumulative snowfall prize for the month of November (416cm).  It wouldn't surprise me if we break the record for greatest snowfall for any month in Whistler - which is 469cm (we're now at 343 and counting).
Keep up to date here:

Another 90 - 120 cm (3 - 4 feet!) of storm snow forecast by the time this one's done on Friday night.  This will bring us close to the all time monthly snowfall record of 469.  And there'll still be 10 days left in the month.
