Whistler Mountain Opens Five Days Early!

Well, the anticipation for ski season to start in Whistler is finally over because Whistler Mountain opened today! Thanks to low temperatures and amazing snow conditions in the past several days Whistler has opened five days ahead of schedule, on November 17th.

Whistler Mountain Skiing Opening Day

Starting today there will be five lifts in operation for skiers and boarders to take up the slopes:

  • Whistler Village Gondola
  • Creekside Gondola
  • Emerald Express
  • Big Red Express
  • Franz’s Chair

These five runs give riders access to over 600 acres of terrain, 20 runs, and a snow base of one-metre at Pig Alley weather station already! And if this news isn’t good enough already, it’s time to start waxing those skis and tightening your bindings because Blackcomb Mountain will be opening, as scheduled, on Thursday, November 23rd..

If you can’t make it up the mountain yet, have a look at this video from Whistler Blackcomb (taken on November 10th!) of the already amazing conditions up there to get a sneak peek of the action in store.

Magnetic: Whistler Blackcomb Movie Premiere

Another way to get pumped up for this awesome November snow is checking out the first Whistler Blackcomb feature ski film, Magnetic. Over the last few months, we’ve seen clips and segments come out to tide us over, but we don’t have to wait anymore! The full movie has been released, and you can watch the whole thing on YouTube for free! There’s nothing more inspiring than seeing ski and snowboarding professionals ride Whistler’s epic runs with ease and delight.
