Dec 5th, 2015

The whole of western Canada, and the global snow-loving community, has been watching with bated breath as Whistler’s snow forecast went from a simple “oh look it’s going to snow next week” to what some media are calling “snowmageddon”. In a relatively short period of time Whistler snow forecasts went from around 60cm in a week to a staggering 200cm+.

Much of this precipitation did fall as rain earlier in the week, but that’s likely sometimes when you’re skiing in a rainforest. On the flip side, what goes up must come down and this morning the freezing level plummeted to well below Whistler Village turning all that rain in to fresh, fluffy west coast powder, and it’s looking like the storm has settled in.

If you’re not here right now, here’s what it looks like inside the Whistler Blackcomb White Room.
