Whistler To Open 6 Days Early
The office was buzzing with excitement on Saturday when the news came in that Whistler Mountain will be opening 6 days early thanks to new snow and low freezing levels.
Skiers and snowboarders will get their first turns at Whistler Blackcomb this Friday, with Blackcomb Mountain opening shortly after on Thursday, 25th November, Whistler Blackcomb’s official opening day.
“New snow and low freezing levels, along with the hard work of our mountain operations, grooming, and snowmaking teams mean we can open Whistler Mountain on Friday, November 19,” says Doug MacFarlane, mountain manager at Whistler Blackcomb. “Though early season conditions will apply, having those first few turns of the season is a great feeling and we’re happy to make that happen for our guests six days earlier than planned.”
