Just a few more centimeters, and then you'll only need about 100 more cm's to get things going!

Just sent daughter off on plane over there today for the season. They get to ski early, testing it, so will be up there skiing in a couple of weeks lucky devil. Will let you know what she says then.
@Dabber, Looks ok high up in the Alpine so as long as they don't get "too much" and have avi issues you will be fine in the top half, though limited cover.

I've been in Whistler every year at that time since the 1980s and it comes and goes.

The last couple of years, I just got on the Duffy Lake Road and drove to the better stuff. That doesn't mean that what they have isn't good, just that I'm picky.

No one can really predict that far out. Indications are good. Last year we had the best conditions for a decade in BC. Lots of snow well consolidated with a tiny slide risk. So deep and safe enough to ride it steep. It's just that those conditions weren't on the coast. Wait and see...

Whistler announced opening day for Nov. 23rd. Forecast calls a couple of small storms to come through the PNW over the next 7 days with cool temps. Could see about a meter of snow at the higher elevations.

So they are able to claim they opened early they are going the one day earlier. Touch and go though. Very little snow at Chickpea ! Forecast storm missed them.
Staff are out for a look see on 22nd so may know more then. At least it has gone cold again so the cannons (including all the new ones) are pounding away asap.

Forecast still calling for about 15cm-30cm over next 3 days. But, at least temps are staying cool. With about a 1,000-1,400 meter freezing level.

Some annoying ex colleague of a colleague keeps sending pics of all the pow Smile 3 pow days out of 3 days opened so far apparently. I shall probably skip this weekend due to thanksgiving crowds, but hopefully the snow shall keep up for the following weeks! snowHead
Raining hard and cold in n. Van so probably going to be another good day in whistler tomorrow.

first two days in whistler have been great , not too much fresh snow , definitely a case of quality over quantity , but so light and dry that in the quieter places still loads of fresh pow lines to be had , snowed lightly all day today and the place is emptying as people leaving early to get back to the city , tomorrow should be epic , got a two day clinic with extremely canadian , so with blue skies forecast and cold fresh snow will be a great start to the week Toofy Grin
can't believe the depth of cover all over the hill , pretty much everything has filled in and the cannons have made the runs home first class , the cold weather is forecast to stay till mid january at least so anyone coming out early season should have a blast snowHead

This is from Sunday across the valley at Powder Mountain. Colder than normal, which isn't a bad thing. Forecast to warm up a bit I think.

I don't think the temps are going to go up much if at all over the next week. That polar vortex thing-a-mah-jig is going to be hanging around for a while.

Some pics and report from Whistler last weekend. Was very good skiing indeed.

https://gortonator.wordpress.com/2016/12/16/more-early-december-whistler-pow/

I think they are pretty much in full swing there now and the current cold will at least maintain the snowpack. Storms heading in next week hopefully.

We'll be back MLK weekend!

the wonders of cold and north facing aspects! Sounds like a great week.

Forecast looks super good for this week. Could be a solid metre by midweek. Fine season up there so far! Happy I got 6 free days on my Edge Card and am pre-paid for MLK weekend. Top deal Madeye-Smiley

In the interior.... 20cm on Saturday night, then another 50cm Sunday night, 4% moisture content. Or "pixie dust" if you like.

Worry about baggage handlers and getting through the airports and traffic. The snow machine is on.

Forecast for weekend currently just has freezing levels around 9-1100m, so not too pineapple-y. Hope so anyway - we're up for the weekend Cool

Weather definitely has a whiff of pineapple at the moment! Temps up quite a bit, and 100 to 150mm rain forecast for the north shore in the next day or so! Sad
