A Month Before Opening, But Whistler Blackcomb’s Piling On The Snow

Whistler Early Snow
We won’t get to sample it until Nov. 22, but there are few worries. Whistler Blackcomb, BC, has taken big time advantage of cooler than normal temperatures and two natural snowfalls get thing rolling in earnest.

Whistler Blackcomb’s Chris McLeod said snowmaking crews have already been able to turn 20 million gallons of water into snow with 150 machines pumping out that white gold 24 hours a day for the past week.

He added that all the snow “has helped stoke the anticipation and excitement for another incredible season of skiing and riding.”

Meanwhile, Mt. Norquay in Banff, Alberta has already opened, with the other two Big Three resorts ready to follow. See SnoCountry.com story.
