Whistler Blackcomb Resort Snow Report

Record snowfall At Whistler Blackcomb Winter Resort

WHISTLER BC - January 2007

Whistler BC WinterNovember 2006 will go down in history books in Whistler as the snowiest November ever. With 416 centimetres or 13 feet 6 inches of snowfall recorded during the month, the prior November record of 272 centimetres or 107 inches was crushed, setting a new high for early season snowfall. This month's snowfall has created phenomenal conditions for an excellent winter season.

The current mid mountain base at Whistler Blackcomb stands at 164 centimetres or 65 inches, a depth that normally isn't reached until early January. "The average November snowfall for Whistler Blackcomb was 138 centimetres," continues Rempel, "and we've tripled that this year!"

Two of the snowiest months in Whistler Blackcomb's history have occurred in 2006. November 2006 joins January 2006 among the top four snowiest months of all time. January's 469 centimetres or 15 feet of snowfall sets the all time record. Whistler Blackcomb has been recording snow data over 28 years of operation.

Whistler Ski Vacation"The continuous snowfall this month has been incredible," says Stuart Rempel, Whistler Blackcomb's senior vice president sales and marketing. "We've woken up to between 10 and 20 centimetres of fresh powder almost every morning since November 1st; we've been able to open our high alpine lifts earlier than ever before and ski outs to the valley are in fantastic shape. The locals are in heaven, our employees are thrilled and our visitors are ecstatic."

Looking ahead, Whistler Blackcomb will be celebrating the grand opening of its new $9.5 million chairlift – the Symphony Express – on December 16, 2006. 1,000 acres of spectacular, high alpine terrain will be accessible in the newly crowned Symphony Amphitheatre. Vast bowls, gladed tree runs, and deep powder are surrounded by spectacular views of Garibaldi Provincial Park, and across the valley to Blackcomb Mountain's 7th Heaven zone.

Whistler Blackcomb currently offers 6,700 acres and 5,020 vertical feet or 1,529 vertical metres of terrain for skiing and riding.
