Whistler/Blackcomb, April 9...Great Snow

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Wow, so for my first trip to Whistler Blackcomb, the gods smiled and dump a foot and a bit of snow Thursday and dropped around 4 to 6 inches of fresh in varying places on Thursday night to wake up to some fresh snow Friday.  Can't believe it's April and we are still ski in ski out to the village.

Just a few pictures of arriving and the snow coming down and yesterday's warm up run, before we went exploring to see what we could find.  Fantastic snow yesterday, some of the nicest I've skied all year, perfect temperatures, about -6 at the top to make a nice light powder top coat to the 12" that dropped on Wednesday night, Thursday.  No pictures of the deeper stuff we found in trees and on Pakalolo, too busy skiing then.

Arriving around 2am with the snow coming down.

Fresh snow in the trees when we woke, view out of the condo.

Base of Blackcomb as Old Boot and Ron (my brother), get ready to head up the lift for first run.

Top of Blackcomb, time to look for a warm up run.

Nice warm up run with a little fresh stuff.  We'd go hunt deeper pockets next.

For the afternoon we went checking out areas and right now the lift is opening and I'm heading up for first run to check out the Glacier. (Should have done that yesterday with all the fresh, but sure we can find some nice snow still today.

Perfect blue bird day today and fantastic conditions on the hill.
